Windows 7: Quick Launch - Enable or Disable

Thanks for the tutorial! It helps a lot and I do need the QL (and no, I don't think that pinning to the taskbar achieves the same purpose)!

However, here's my experience on the QL disappearance - it stays where it is as long as nothing major happens to the system, i.e. nothing gets installed. If I install a new theme - say by downloading from the MS Windows 7 site - sometimes the QL disappears on the next reboot. It has also disappeared after I have installed Samurize - although it now runs fine along with my Samurize config. Why would it disappear after a theme or a program would get installed - I do not know.

You're welcome Unifex. Thank you for the addition information that may help those that may have QL disappear on them for no reason.

I could create the Quick Launch. It was placed in the System Tray area as the tutorial indicates. My problem is how to move it adjacent to the Start button as is the case with Vista. I think I am following the step 8, B) but the Quick Launch does not move.
I wonder what I am doing wrong. Could anyone help?

Edit: I could manage to do it.

Thanks to this tutorial I could turn on the Quick Launch. However, for some reason it was undone by the process of rebooting the system. I brought back the Quick Launch following the same procedure again but to no avail. What could be wrong?

Hello Churin,

As a test, create another administrator account to see if it works ok in it.

Hellow Brink,

I did what you suggested and found no such problem on the new account. I turned on Quick Launch once again on the original account but the same problem repeated.

There must be something wrong with the personal profile for the original account. One solution is to rebuild a new personal profile from scratch. But is there any further suggestion to possibly pin point what the cause of this problem is? If so I would rather pursue that rout even though it takes more time than rebuilding the profile.

Hi. I want to have the shortcuts be placed ON the taskbar as shown in the screendump attached to this query. I have read about quick launch here on the forum, but I cannot get the dotted bar at the right of the start be moved. How can I solve the problem ?

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.
