Windows 7: XP-style quick launch shortcuts

XP-style quick launch shortcuts

Is there any way to make the quick launch shortcuts, the ones right next to the "Start" button on the taskbar, act the way they did in XP? For example, if I launch any program that I have a shortcut to on the quick launch menu, such as Firefox, the shortcut is replaced by the "button" for the windows that is opened. I want the shortcut to remain as is and for the "button" for the newly-opened windows to appear to the right of the quick launch buttons the way it did in XP.

Thanks,
Marcus

Hi Marcus,

This should get you started: Quick Launch - Enable or Disable

Let us know if you need anything else!

Quick Launch bar
MS seem to have decided that their "pin applications to the taskbar" feature is a much better solution than the Quick Launch bar - otherwise surley they would not have annoyed all those who have been using the Quick Launch bar for years by removing it... I am getting used to the new taskbar in...

Quick Launch Bar
I heard that the Quick Launch Bar has been removed in Windows 7. I sure hope that isn't true. Maybe someone will write a third party app to replace it. I use it over a hundred times a day. I would miss it greatly.
