Hi ekrisch,

In order to re-create the Show Desktop icon on the Quick Launch toolbar, follow these steps:
 
1. Use any text editor (such as Notepad) to create a file with the following
   lines:
 
   [Shell]
   Command=2
   IconFile=explorer.exe,3
   [Taskbar]
   Command=ToggleDesktop
 
2. Save the new file as a file named "Show Desktop.scf" (without the quotation
   marks) in the Windows\System folder.
 
3. Quit Notepad.
 
4. Using Windows Explorer or My Computer, right-click the "Show Desktop .scf"
   file, and then click Create Shortcut.
 
5. Copy the shortcut to this folder:
 
   Windows\Application Data\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Quick Launch
 
6. Rename the shortcut to Desktop.
