    Cannot create toolbar error when creating Quick Launch toolbar

    Can someone please tell me what the path is on their desktop shortcut in the quick launch toolbar?

    The problem:
    I get the 'cannot create toolbar' error when trying to enable quick launch in XP.

    This guide contains a solution which doesnt work for me.

    I manually created a Quick Launch folder at C:\Documents and Settings\Tarun\Application Data\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Quick Launch and dragged stuff into it.
    I cannot create the display desktop button that minimises all open windows.

    I have tried copying the 'send to desktop' icon from the 'send to' folder but it doesnt do the job.

    Creating a shortcut to C:\Documents and Settings\{username}\Desktop only opens the desktop folder.

    Solution:

    Restore Show Desktop Icon to Quick Launch on Taskbar

    If the Show Desktop icon is deleted from Quick Launch, the procedure below will recreate the file.

    Open Notepad and enter the following text:

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

    Save the new file as Show Desktop.scf then drag and drop the icon on the Quick Launch bar or whatever location you want the shortcut to appear.

    Thanks.
    Also note, the Show Desktop.scf file must be permanently saved in some location and the target field in the show desktop shortcut properties in quick launch must point to it.
    Eg: I saved Show Desktop.scf in C:\ and the following fields in the show desktop toolbar shortcut have following info
    Target: "C:\Show Desktop.scf"
    Start in: "C:\Documents and Settings\Tarun\Desktop"

    It's been my experience that things tend to get wetter rather than dryer that way...
