The Show Desktop icon is very handy when you have a lot of windows open, but it’s also easy to delete. The keyboard shortcut is Windows-M, but if you want the icon back:
- Click Start, click Run, type notepad in the Open box, and then click OK.
- Carefully copy and then paste the following text into the Notepad window:
- On the File menu, click Save As, and then save the file to your desktop as “Show desktop.scf”. The Show desktop icon is created on your desktop.
- Click and then drag the Show desktop icon to your Quick Launch toolbar.
