ToggleDesktop - how to trigger it

If I follow through the 'ToggleDesktop' shortcut it leads to this script/content/ini file (?what is it?)


My question is:
- Is it a script or what is it?
- How can I run it (manually / from the cmd line, apart from clicking on the icon)
- How can I run it from within a program?

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

This actually is the content of 'DESKTOP.SCF' (a Shell Command File)  - the file that is associated with the 'Show Desktop' icon in your QuickLaunch bar. To invoke that file, you need a little workaround - create a .lnk file (shell link) to the .scf file and run that one using

start desktop.lnk
