Stupid me! Help me out please!...

I'm an idiot...

I'm using Windows 2000, and I have a little toolbar just to the right of the start menu, with shortcuts to my most commonly used programs...I had a "show desktop" shortcut there as well, but I accidentily deleted's not like a regular program where I can just create a new one? Does anyone know how I can get that shortcut back?

Can you just right click on the toolbar and select Desktop from the offering in Toolbars?

It should be in c:/Documents and Settings/Administrator/Application Data/Microsoft/Internet Explorer/Quick Launch.

1.make a text document
2.copy and paste the following to it:
Command=ToggleDesktop and rename to "Show Desktop.scf"
4. place in quick launch folder

To add a program to the Quick Launch bar
In My Computer or Windows Explorer, click the icon for the program you want to add, and drag it to the Quick Launch portion of the taskbar.
The icon for that program appears next to the other Quick Launch icons on the taskbar.
If the Quick Launch bar is not displayed, right-click an empty area on the taskbar, click Toolbars, and then click Quick Launch.
