Create a text file in Notepad as follows:

[Shell]
Command=2
IconFile=explorer.exe,3
[Taskbar]
Command=ToggleDesktop

Save it as Show Desktop.scf then drag it to the Quick launch bar.
Or just click on this link:

Restore/Add Show Desktop to Quick Launch (Line 61)
http://www.yqcomputer.com/

Also note that you can do this with a keyboard shortcut: the combination of
the Windows key + D or the Windows key + M.


As an aside, note that the Quick Launch Toolbar is just that--a toolbar, not
an area of the Task Bar. Although by default it appears *on* the Task Bar,
it is not actually part of the Task Bar itself, and any or all toolbars can
be dragged off the Task Bar and docked elsewhere on the screen. I
particularly like the configuration with the Task
Bar at the bottom of the screen and the Quick Launch bar at the left side.

I've tried both of the techniques described, and no icon for "show desktop"
shows up on the desktop. In both cases the computer tells me these files
already exist. But if they exist, why aren't they on my desktop?

was facing the same problem some days ago. Recently one of my friend referred me to the website and i got a really nice solution.

You can try this:

Go to Start and choose Run.

Type in "regsvr32 /n /i:U shell32.dll" and click on Enter.

Restart your System.

The website is www.completepcpedia.com. :-) :-)
