Windows 7 Tips

Change Show Desktop Icon

Now we have our icon on the Taskbar and you can move it wherever is convenient to you, and clicking on it will indeed show your desktop. However, you might want to change the icon to something more appealing.

  • One option is to open the Show Desktop icon Properties again and select the Change Icon button.

  • When we did this we got the following message Click OK and it will open up to %SystemRoot%\system32\SHELL32.dll.

Where you can go through the list of icons included by default.

  • You might have to do a reboot for the icon to show up correctly, and here is our final result where we have it in the Quick Launch bar and the Taskbar. Of course the regular Show Desktop in the lower right corner as well.
