Windows 7: Taskbar-Open Apps on left, Quick Launch on right - can't reverse these

Taskbar-Open Apps on left, Quick Launch on right - can't reverse these

I installed Quick Launch on my Taskbar (Windows 7, 64-bit).

I don't know how to position it next to the Start button.

The area in the Taskbar between the Start button and the Quick Launch toolbar appears to be reserved to display open applications.

Dragging the Quick Launch toolbar all the way to the left doesn't work. It stops 2 inches from the Start button, allowing room for open application icons.

Does anyone know how to fix this?

Thanks.

Hi and welcome to the Forum.
I found this " Note that you’ll need to right-click and unlock the taskbar before you can move the toolbar."

Hello MetsManiac, and welcome to Seven Forums.

You should be able to drag Quick Launch all the way over to the left next the Start button like below.



Check using the tutorial below to see if it may be able to help with the placement of Quick Launch. Double check to see if you may still have anything inbetween it and the Start button. For example, a hidden pinned program or toolbar.

Hope this helps for now,

Yes.

I had been trying unsuccessfully to drag the Quick Launch toolbar to the left of the toolbar containing the open application icons.

What I needed to do was to drag the toolbar containing the open application icons to the right of the Quick Launch toolbar.

Thanks again for the information!
