How to Re-Create the Show desktop Icon on Windows

One of those useful tricks that is good to know. To be honest you can the same functionality by pressing and holding the Windows key the the letter D. Anyways I like having 3 buttons in the quick launch toolbar in windows, Chrome, Windows Commander and Show Desktop.

There are 2 ways to fix this:
The first one and easy is to download this tool and follow the steps.

The second one which I call the funny one need these steps:
Open any editor and paste this code:

Save the file to your desktop as "Show desktop.scf"
Drag the icon to your quick launch toolbar and test it.

In reality the quick launch button uses the files in this folder:
For windows XP, 2003
%userprofile%\Application Data\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Quick Launch

For windows vista, 7 and server 2008%userprofile%\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Quick Launch

Hope it helps Some one. Happy hacking :)
