Taskbar Image File Location

What file in the Windows directory contains the task bar image? Also is the "Show Desktop" button (right of green line) in the same image or a different location?

Thanks in advance.

If you are using the default aero theme.
It's in C:\Windows\Resources\Themes\Aero\aero.msstyles image #s this is for bottom taskbar
Taskbar # 845, 1028,

Show desktop button #1107

If it's a custom theme post a link and I will look at it.
