Recreate the Show Desktop icon on the Quick Launch toolbar

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:
2. Save the new file as a file named Show Desktop.scf
in the WindowsSystem or WinntSystem32 folder. Note
that Notepad may automatically append a .txt extension
to the file name. Remove this extension if Notepad
adds it. These steps do not work if the file is named
Show Desktop.scf.txt.
3. Quit Notepad.
4. Using Windows Explorer or My Computer, right-click
the Show Desktop .scf file, and then click Create
5. Copy the new shortcut to the appropriate folder. In
Microsoft Windows 95 or Windows 98, copy the shortcut
to this folder: WindowsApplication DataMicrosoftInternet
ExplorerQuick Launch

In Microsoft Windows NT or Microsoft Windows 2000,
copy the shortcut to this folder: WinNTSystem32
In Microsoft Windows XP, copy the shortcut to the
following folder: WINDOWSSystem32ConfigSystemprofileApplication
DataMicrosoftInternet ExplorerQuick Launch

6. Rename the shortcut to Desktop.
The Show Desktop icon automatically appears on the
Quick Launch toolbar.

Desktop URL shortcuts no longer have website icons. Ugly E symbol

Right click on the shortcut and copy the url.

Create a new shortcut and paste the url into the location, give it a name then save the new shortcut.

The new shortcut should appear on your desktop with the icon of the website. You can then delete the old shortcut.

Unfortunately, this seems to be the only way to get the proper icon. You can click on the change icon button when you're viewing the propertis of the shortcut but the icon of the website will not be displayed.

Installed Windows XP home edition and then lost Word 97.

If you allowed the installation to format the complete hard drive then you are goosed.

Try going to Start, Explore,Programs check to see if Microsoft Office is in the list .

If it is then open it up go through the files and see if you can find the original .exe files for Word etc

You may be lucky enough to be able to create a shortcut from each of the .exe files and transfer them to your desktop

So you would look for Word.exe icon right click on it an create a shortcut , drag that shortcut to the desktop.

Hi sadiebay. It was not my solution for your initial post, but I think I can explain why you can not find the shortcut tab.

Because Internet Explorer is a Microsoft program integrated into XP, it is considered a 'Desktop Icon' item. The shortcut you are trying to find the properties tag for was probably put on the desktop using the Show Desktop Items routine in the Display Properties routine. It will not have the same right-click options available as a regular shortcut icon placed on your desktop.

The solution is to go to your Start Button->All Programs and right click on the Internet Explorer icon in the program list, then Send To Desktop. You will get another icon that looks the same, but you should notice that the new one has the small shortcut arrow on the 'E' where the old one doesn't. Now when you right click on the new icon (the one with the arrow) you get Properties as the last option, and within the Properties tab you should see Run with a drop down box next to it, in which you can select Maximized. Delete the old icon (right-click and delete, doesn't hurt anything) and put the new one in its place to keep your desktop set as you are used to it.

Desktop files are not opening

It basically means that the original location for that shortcut has been moved, I recommend deleting that shortcut going to the original file and right clicking, select create new shortcut > desktop.

Not sure why you want a keyboard shortcut, but you can create a quick launch, desktop, etc.... shortcut by opening "My computer" then right clicking on it and selecting "Create shortcut" and then just pasting it where you want it. I hope this post helps?
Good luck.
