Is there way to get to desktop through mini-icon or set icon without closing all open screens with XP professional?

Posted

I want to be able to go directly to desktop at times. Can a mini-icon be installed or is there a direct link already on the firefox screen?

This happened

Every time Firefox opened

Chosen solution

1. Press Windows key+D 2. You should have a "Show Desktop" icon in your Quick Lauch toolbar next to the "Start" button. Sometimes the "Show Desktop" icon goes missing according to some, but I have never experienced that.
