How to Move WMC Icon From Task Bar to Quick Launch

Does anyone know how I can move the Windows Media Center Task Bar icon to the Quick Launch Menu?

You should be able to copy the WMC shortcut from the Start Menu / All Programs to Quick Launch.
Then unpin WMC from the Task Bar if you don't want it there.

Thanks David. That's how I populated my Quick Launch Folder but when I try to do that with Media Center, it doesn't show up in the right click menu has having been copied. I have a Gadget that stores multiple copied items in the clipboard and it will show that I copied it but it still doesn't show as being copied in the right click menu (Paste is grayed out) and CTRL V just laughs at me.

Weird, that way works for me

Can you go to C:\Windows\ehome
right click on ehshell.exe
drag it to Quick Launch
and click Create shortcuts here when you release the right mouse button ?

That's close to how I finally did it a few moments ago before you posted. I right clicked on it in the Start Menu (I not only didn't know where ehome was, I didn't even know it was named that), clicked on Properties, clicked on Open File Location, right clicked on ehshell (it was the one that was highlighted), then clicked on Create Shortcut. That put a shortcut on my desktop which I then dragged it to the Quick Launch Menu folder (I right clicked on a blank spot in the Quick Launch Menu to get the folder).

Thanks for your help! I tried to rep you for your quick responses but the forum won't let me.
