    shortcut to desktop

    I used to have a shortcut to my desktop in my quick launch toolbar that essentially minimized all of my windows to show my desktop. Somehow it got changed and when I click on the shortcut icon it opens a windows explorer window of my desktop.

    Anyone know how to either know what the target of the shortcut needs to be or how to create a new shortcut to minimize all windows?


    - I'm running Win2000 Pro by the way

    Most likely something like...

    C:\Documents and Settings\YOUR_USER_NAME\Desktop

    I tried that but that simply opened windows explorer to my desktop. Check out the link above... it's a lot more involved that one might think.

    If I was looking for a keyboard shortcut that would have been helpful but since it wasn't...
