Hello Agunslinger,

Here's a "Show Desktop" shortcut that you could use.

Hope this helps,

Thanks Shawn! Glas I know where the icon itself is now. However, I want the icon to appear where the default "gray bar" show desktop icon is on taskbar all the way to the right. Not just a desktop shortcut.

Sorry Agunslinger, but I don't think that's possible in Windows 7.

The closest I can get you is for you to either pin the shortcut above to the taskbar, or enable Quick Launch and place the shortcut above in it.

No, I think. In Windows 7 if you chose "Windows Classic" theme that is the desktop icon that replaces the default Windows 7 silver bar icon. That pciture is actually of a Windows 7 desktop with Windows Classic theme applied. So it has to be hackable.

Just make sure it is not hidden in the notification area.
