One of the kids in this house has removed the "Show Desktop" button from our
Quick Launch toolbar. I can't figure out how to put it back on there but use
it a lot and really want it there.

Can anyone help? I know how to add programs to the Quick Launch toolbar but
can't find an icon for this function.

Thanx in advance, chrissy

Right click on the taskbar, click on properties.
On the general tab, put a checkmark in " Show Quick Launch"
