Windows 7: Desktop Link/Shortcut

Desktop Link/Shortcut

I realize that you can get to the desktop view by clicking on the tool bar all the way over to the right, but is there a way to get an icon to click on IN the toolbar? I used to have a cool desk icon that got me to the desktop. It's more convenient for me to have on the tool bar.

Thanks,
carl

Hello Carl,

This Show Desktop shortcut may work for you for this.

Hope this helps,
