I don't have the 'Show Desktop' button in my Quick Launch area and I need it back. How can I do so. I am looking for possibly the Explorer command that would let me do this. If not, then any way to get it back would appreciate it. Thanks.

Create a text file named "Show Desktop.scf" with the following contents:

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

[Taskbar]
Command=ToggleDesktop

Excellent! Can this be done from the cmd prompt? Thanks.

You can use notepad to type:

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

[Taskbar]
Command=ToggleDesktop

and save it as "Show Desktop.scf"

I meant to say 'Can this *also* be done from the cmd prompt?' Thanks.

Yes, you can. As long as you use a text editor.
