Go to Start/Run and type in "notepad" (without the quotes) then type in these lines:

[Shell]
Command=2
IconFile=explorer.exe,3
[Taskbar]
Command=ToggleDesktop

Next, save the file with the name "Show Desktop.scf" on your desktop


notepad is gonna try to save it as a .txt file tho just make sure its a .scf

now you can put the shortcut anywhere you want
