    my desktop shortcut has disappeared (win xp)

    I'm almost ashamed to sign my name to this post as the problem is so dumb.

    At some point in the last month, the desktop shortcut icon in the left taskbar of Windows disappeared. Any quick way to restore it?

    If you right click where the Icon used to be you should have an "Open Folder" option (make sure you're not hovering over any other icons if you can't see it). Click on this and in the folder it opens create a new shortcut with these settings:

    Target: "C:\Documents and Settings\your_username\Application Data\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Quick Launch\Show Desktop.scf"
    Start in: "C:\Documents and Settings\your_username\Application Data\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Quick Launch"
