Taskbar Quick Launch block

Hello,
Recently, i have been trying to add new items to the quicklaunch bar but i couldn't because a red block sign would come on front of it.
But i can pin it to Start Menu though.


Any help would be appreciated,


Thanks,
Alex.

Try pinning it once you have it running.

Interesting. Does it only happen with that one application?

Try unlocking the taskbar as well.

Hello Alex,

See if you can add the shortcut directly to the hidden C:\Users\(user-name)\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Quick Launch folder. It should then show up on the taskbar.

Hope this helps,
Shawn
