Windows 7: Desktop no longer pinned to taskbar

Desktop no longer pinned to taskbar

Many moons ago I pinned a show desktop icon to the desktop, now after running some disk cleaners I no longer have the icon and have to use the rectangle in the lower right corner.

As I recall there is a small app that one can download that will allow pining a show desktop icon to the taskbar, but I no longer can find it. Can someone provide the link - all the other methods for pinning the desktop have no worked for me.

TIA,

Frank

Pinned Taskbar item open new icon instead of on top of pinned item?
I've got two laptops here. Both running Windows 7. On one when you pin an item to the taskbar and run that program it does not open another icon on the taskbar. On this one it will open a new icon on the taskbar. Why is this the case and how do I fix it please?
