    I managed to delete the 'go to desktop' or 'minimize all' icon off my quicklink toolbar by accident... does anyone know how to get it back?

    or even better, is there a way to macro one of my Function keys on my keyboard to minimize all?

    Windows Key + M + Shift is opposite.
    Windows Key + E is Windows Explorer
    F3 is find files/folders

    There is others, but that's all I use regularly..

    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.

    Yeah, but it's not shorter than hitting Windows Key then R [​IMG]
    And you dont' have to concentrate to do it at the same time.

    Took me a while to think of this as well cause I couldn't find a normal way to lock an XP box other then going into standbye mode, but windows key + L locks an XP box. Shortcuts are fun!

    uh ... my comment was pretty much useless.

    try finding the Show Desktop app somewhere else and copy and paste it into your directory. the quick launch folder can be found here:
    C:\Documents and Settings\UserName\Application Data\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Quick Launch

    look under the Administrator folder (in place of UserName).

    After posting that, I knew it would only be a matter of time for someone to pickup on that. [​IMG] Must proof read before using the irreversible/permanent submit button.

    I've been on the tribe board since pretty much the beginning. And I'd have to say that this is probably one of the most useful threads that's ever been started.!
    Hooray for key commands!
