Default "Show desktop" missing

hi, I have deleted the "show desktop" icon from the quick launch, and now I would want it back, I have tried to search for it but I cant find it.
Does anyone know how I can get it back?

Open Notepad and enter the following text.

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

and save as "ShowDesktop.scf" on the desktop and drag it into taskbar.

I dragged the original file located at
C:\Documents and Settings\GSOGUTCU\Application Data\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Quick Launch
to Notepad only.

I'm not too sure what you meant by "didnt find it" could you explain a little.

Thanks,
