Q. Please help me find my "Show Desktop" shortcut.
I inadvertently deleted my "Show Desktop" shortcut that resides on my Quick Launch Bar... I somehow accidently dragged it to the desktop then deleted it - the actual command and not just the shortcut, I believe. I have become accustomed to it being on my Quick Launch over the years and I really miss it. Is there any way to resurrect it? I know I can still right-click on the task bar and click Show Desktop, but I much prefer the direct shortcut if I can get it back. Any suggestions? I'm using Windows XP SP2 Home Edition. Thanks for any help.

A Second Method Is:
Copy the file from another user account
Every user account will have a copy of Show Desktop.scf file. Search for the file named Show Desktop.scf in your computer by logging in as Administrator. Copy it to your user profile path here:
%Appdata%\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Quick Launch
(Type the above path in the Start, Run dialog)
