displaying the desktop

by user429 / October 5, 2006 12:26 PM PDT

I have Windows XP installed on my computer but I don't have that icon that allows me to display the desktop from an internet page. How can I go about securing that type of icon so that I can put it on the taskbar? Thank you very much.

user429, Just download the file from the link that caktus gave you. Save it to somewhere you can find it. It is a zip file so double left click on it which will open it then double click on the .exe file.
