Add Quick Launch to Taskbar - Build 7000

I tried this tutorial, but it does not work ...

Quick Launch - Enable or Disable

I didn't try Method 3 , but just because that's not how it is supposed to look.

Any other way to add quick launch to windows taskbar?

thanks in advance.

Have you tried method one or two? You can drag and drop things to the taskbar pinning them there as well.

Quick Launch Toolbar

All you have to do is create your own folder named Quick Launch, place your shortcuts in it and then go to your Taskbar and add new toolbar and browse for the folder you just created.

Once you have it on the Taskbar, unlock the Taskbar and move it to a position that your happy with and then right click the Toolbar and deselect show text and show title and there you have a fully functional Quick Launch Bar.

You can also follow the tutorial and apply the same option I have described to position and remove unwanted text.

Why bother doing all this work when you can search in start button, location of program, drag to quick launch? What is the benefit?

Hello Ablib, and welcome to Seven Forums.

I'm not sure what you mean by this, but you click on the arrow to the right of the Quick Launch toolbar to open the menu to select your shortcut. If you want to add or remove a shortcut, then you can at the Quick Launch folder location.

Hope this helps,
Shawn
