Got a small problem:

Installed "Simm's-Game" in Windows ME-

The game takes over the "show-desktop" on your taskbar, takes on some kind of building icon, & then it won't show desktop anymore,...

Took a look at kids Windows '98,...& same thing...(just never noticed, I guess)

Tried uninstalling the game, went diving in to pull out another shortcut from the original "show desktop", but it has also been altered,...

Any solutions ?

do you have a small>> on the bottom left hand corner of your taskbar ?

if so click on it and you will probably find the show desktop icon in the menu that scrolls up

Well,
Did everything the site said,...(didn't list ME, though)
The icon popped up on my toolbar,...but still does't work...
(icon isn't right either,...but I cuold fix that part if it would work...)


Here's what you asked for:


Show Desktop.scf

SCF File
Show Desktop
C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM
78 bytes (78 bytes)
32.0 KB (32,768 bytes)

I went over to the Knowledge base and the following method works for Win ME.
GO to Windows\system and the Show Desktop . Drag it to the quick launch toolbar to create a new shortcut to desktop there.

In fact, I have used this method in Win98SE too.

Hey,... could someone try copying their Windows ME:
" Show Desktop.scf " ,& email it to me???

Or is that illegal or something...?!?

Boy do I feel bad about that show desktop problem. Here you were so kind to offer to test Sims game on an WinME machine and it changes things.
Anyway I e-mailed the zipped file over to you. Hope that is what you need.

Chill Davey,..
That's my doing,...& that's what's so cool about this place,...people helping another out. There's a fix, & besides, I'm learning more, & I want to keep the game !!!

OK, here's the latest & greatest:

Replaced the file
Made shortcut to toolbar
...when clicked, it asks what program to open with...
( also, tried clicking the file itself )

Ya' know what?!

When I hold down the "Windows-button + D" on my keyboard,
it works (minimize all open windows, just like "Show-Desktop")
& I think Dave's site explains why nothing was working out,...
Thanks Dave!!!

Well guys,I'll try it out in a while,...gotta go for a bit-
( hockey-games comin' on !!! GO RED-WINGS!!!)

THANKS AGAIN EVERYBUDDY !!!
