Showing Show Desktop

Sometimes we accidentally delete the "Show Desktop" icon in the quick launch menu.
You can manually recreate it by creating a file called "Show Desktop.scf".

  • Open Notepad,& type in the fiollowing:

  • Save this File as "Show Desktop.scf" by selecting the "Save As" type as All Files-- to prevent the file being saved as "Show Desktop.scf.txt".

Now all you have to do is to drag this file to the Quick Launch Toolbar & your show desktop icon is restored.

There is yet another way ...
That is to use the Regsvr32 command.
  • Go to Start>Run and type in "regsvr32 /n /i:U shell32.dll"
This should restore the Show Desktop Icon
