I accidentally deleted the executable for the "Show Desktop" button in my
Quick Launch bar, and now when I click the shortcut Windows will show me a
browsing message and of course it can't find the file. How do I get back my
"Show Desktop" function?

Show desktop isn't a shortcut. How come yours is?

As David said, Show Desktop is not a shortcut, but a shell script. From the
limited information in your post, it looks like the .SCF file association is
corrupt. Try this command from Start, Run:

regsvr32 /i shell32.dll

Files deleted from a floppy disk do not go to the Recycle Bin. It will ask you
if you are sure if you want to delete them. That is your last chance. You
can
try a third party app that may bring them back.
Recover and Restore Deleted Files (Line 36) download to floppy (not the same
one you are trying to restore.
