How to Move the "Show Desktop" Icon to the Quick Launch Bar or the Taskbar in Windows


If you aren't a fan of scrolling your pointer over to the lower right corner of your monitor to show the desktop, we have a cool tweak that will allow you to add the Show Desktop icon to the Quick Launch bar or anywhere on your Taskbar.

If you want to easily get access to the Desktop in Windows 7, 8, or 10, you've undoubtedly noticed they moved the Show Desktop to the lower right corner of the screen. This can be annoying if you have a dual monitors, or even a large monitor.

There are a couple of ways you can make the Show Desktop icon more accessible. We'll take a look at each and you can choose which method works best for you. We show both methods in Windows 10, but they will also work in Windows 7 and 8.

How to Put the Show Desktop Icon Back to Where it Used to Be by Adding Back the Quick Launch Bar

The first method of moving the Show Desktop icon is to add back the Quick Launch bar to the Taskbar. The Quick Launch bar contains a Show Desktop option, so once you follow the steps in our article to bring back the Quick Launch bar, you should see the Show Desktop icon on the left side of the Taskbar. If you don't, the article also describes how to move icons on the Quick Launch bar.

This method will "kill two birds with one stone" by getting the Quick Launch bar and the Show Desktop icon back where they used to be in Windows.

How to Pin the Show Desktop Icon to the Taskbar

If you don't want the Quick Launch bar back, you could pin the icon to the Taskbar instead. Unfortunately, the process isn't as easy as a simple drag and drop, but there is an easy workaround.

To test this, you'll have to get your computer's software fixed for your windows 10. If you're lucky, one of these steps may fix your software problem and allow you to boot Windows normally. If you can not find the previous activation code, you can click softkeyhome.co.uk to buy genuine windows product key with the lowest price.

Right-click on any empty area of the desktop and go to New > Text Document.

Rename the shortcut to Show Desktop.exe.

NOTE: You will need to have file extensions showing in order for this to work.

The following warning dialog box displays because you are changing the extension on the shortcut. Click the "Yes" button to change the name and extension on the shortcut.

Right-click on the dummy .exe file you just made and select "Pin to taskbar" from the popup menu.

The Show Desktop icon on the far right side of the Taskbar is still available in Windows 7, 8, and 10, even after using one or both of these methods to "move" it.
