I am not a big fan of having the “show desktop” button on the bottom right hand side of the screen. When does anyone ever have their cursor down there? On bigger LCD’s that can be a hassle.
This will show you how to re-add the quick launch toolbar on the bottom left hand side of the screen.
Right-click the taskbar, choose Toolbars / New Toolbar
In the folder selection dialog, enter the following string and hit OK:
%userprofile%\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Quick Launch
Turn off the “lock the taskbar” setting, and right-click on the divider. Make sure that “Show text” and “Show title” are disabled and the view is set to “small icons”.
Use the dividers to rearrange the toolbar ordering to choice, and then lock the taskbar again.
