    Desktop Icon

    I'm temporarily working on a computer that has a Windows 98 environment. It doesn't show a Desktop icon on the Quick Launch Toolbar. Is there some way to add it?

    Thanks -- I know that shortcut. Just wondered if there was any way to add the desktop icon to the quick launch toolbar.

    See if <post#=312621>post 312621</post#> in the Windows XP forum works for Windows 98 too.
