This customisation comes in two parts. The first part checks the Query String to see if the HideDesc parameter is set. Depending on the result of this parameter, a line is added to the top of the page that gives the user the option to toggle the view on or off.

Then the second part adds an extra row that contains the description set for that Livelink object underneath the object itself. This results in a page like this :
