    Show Desktop Becomes Worksheet (Excel XP-SP3)

    Here is a strange thing! I had 2 spreadsheets open and I clicked on the show desktop icon on the taskbar. Instead of taking me to the desktop I got a spreadsheet with the show desktop info in it. How wierd is that?

    My guess would be that you moved the mouse by accident while you clicked it, so that you dragged the Show Desktop shortcut into the Excel window. The Show Desktop shortcut is a text file, and you're now looking at its contents. Just close it without saving it.
