Show Desktop Icon missing?

from the file-for-future-reference-dept
I've been on a couple of computers here and there where I couldnt get it to give me the ever handy show desktop icon. Well today I figured out how to recreate that and I thought I would share how.

First create a text file on your desktop. Open it up and enter the following information:


Save the file as "Show Desktop" (or anything else you want it really doesnt matter.

Now as long as you have hide extentions for known file names turned off you should be able to change the extentsion from .txt to .scf then just move the icon to your quick links toolbar and you are good to go!
