OOPS! I LOST MY VISTA’S SHOW DESKTOP ICON. HELP TO GET IT BACK 
While I was maneuvering around my new Vista computer, I accidentally lost my Show Desktop icon. Since I rely on it, I feel quite lost without it. Can you help?

 Join the club. I lost it, too. But I got it back after I hastily did an Internet search and found a Web site that gives instructions for getting it back. The URL is www.howtogeek.com/howto/windows-vista/quick-help-restore-show-desktop-icon-in-windows-vista/. At the site you’ll find a Zip file you can download. Once it’s loaded, open Windows Explorer and type the following into the address bar: shell:Quick Launch (see screenshot below).

Then unzip the file and copy it into the folder. That will return the icon to its rightful place.
