I am trying to create an-XP style Show Desktop icon on my new Windows 7 taskbar. There are plenty of instructions all over the internet, all saying the same thing:
1. Create a dummy .exe file and pin a shortcut to the taskbar.
2. Create the .scf file.
3. Change the target of the shortcut to the .scf file.
When I try to do step 3, I get an error saying my path name is invalid, and I cannot see why. The attached screenshot shows the folder where the shortcut and the .scf file are, and error I get when I try to change the target in the shortcut properties window.
Most of the how-to pages say to put the .scf file into the windows shortcut taskbar folder, but I have tried both that and putting it into its own folder, and the same thing happens.
Any suggestions how to make this work would be welcome.
