DearWebby is actually Helmut Morscher, the CEO of Webby, inc.

Originally the "Tech Support Pits" were reports of the funniest tech support incidents, but over the years the column gradually shifted to answering tech support questions put forward by the readers of the Dear Webby Humor Letter.

This collection of computer and web advice was started partly because readers demanded an archive, and partly because some questions were asked again and again. Each page has a different day's Tech Support Pits column.

Have FUN!

Tech Support Pits:
From Don=== Dear Webby, I have Windows XP Home Edition with service pack 1. Can you please tell me where in Win XP I might find the icon for the desk top, or how I may create one? I have searched every where in the computer that i can think of. but am unable to find a desk top icon or how to create one, thanks for your help. Don Dear Don The Windows Key plus D works the best for that. However, if you have an ancient keyboard without the Windows key, you can make a taskbar icon for it. Make a text file with notepad or wordpad and save it into c:\windows\ as Show Desktop.scf Paste this into that file: __________________ [Shell] Command=2 IconFile=explorer.exe,3 [Taskbar] Command=ToggleDesktop ___________________ Then make a shortcut to that file, drag that shortcut to the desktop drag it from the desktop to the task bar next to the START button. That taskbar icon will then work the same as if you had hit the Windows key and "D". Have FUN Dear Webby
