Re:QuickLaunch desktop icon deleted accidentally

The Quick way I know how,(no pun here)is to right click an open space on your desktop. Hover mouse over New, close to the top find shortcut, left click and in create shortcut window, click browse, click desktop, click OK, click Next, if it says desktop in the Text box click finish or "add a new name" Now drag and drop the new icon to the Quick launch bar area. Hope it works for you.
