Missing button in gnome panel!

Hi, I don't know how, but with my mouse I have made the button of the lower gnome panel (the one that lets you minimize all the windows) disappear! Now the question is, how the heck can I bring it back??

Thanks a lot! I'm missing it

Show Desktop Button

I think you're referring to the Show Desktop button.

There are instructions in the GNOME user guide to get it back:
GNOME User Guide / Buttons / Show Desktop Button

Thank you a lot cparker15! And one more question, Can I make a shortcut to that button with a key combination? I mean like, pressing ALT + SHIFT will "show desktop". Can it be done?

Thank you!

if you go in the keyboard settings there should be a place to define shortcuts, I'm not sure if it will work though
