    grrrr...!! Someone at work deleted my Quick Launch Button which is located at the bottom of the taskbar (also called Show Desktop button).. My quick launch tab is checked so it's not that.. How do I get my Quick Launch Button back? I don't know how anyone can function without that Button.. I love that button!!

    Right click on a blank spot on the toolbar, Toolbars, Quick Launch.

    hi! errrr hi!

    Anyways, if you cant get it back (and i dont know how) you can always use the Windows Key and D to drop to desktop.

    Go to your start bar and check if there is something that looks like this

    Start II if there is scroll over it with your mouse and the cursor should change shape....then drag it over to one side or the other...the ql bar should appear.

    I dont think he has lost his quick launch bar, I think it is just the "show desktop" button he has lost

    If you've 'lost' your show desktop icon from the quicklaunch toolbar then try looking for it here. But enable hidden files and folders first.

    C:\Documents and Settings\Administrator\Application Data\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Quick Launch

    Then you can drag and drop it onto the toolbar.

    If you cannot find it under the Administrator's account try looking under any other accounts on the machine.
