Hello Kenium, and welcome to Seven Forums.

You could do step 6 to check Show Title to have it look like the screenshot under step 4 instead.

Hope this helps,
Shawn

Hi Shawn
Thx for attempt to help but this method doesn't work.
I find another method by myself, all what you need to do it rename Quick Launch folder to nothing
Just RMB chose rename and then hold Alt and type on num pad 255 and release Alt. But right now i'm not sure what action will take new app. with this blank folder name.. anyway add shortcut really easily just dragging on arrow.

Update
I hurried, this method work only with "lock taskbar off"
With "lock taskbar on" can see a piece of the icon. =(

Oh ok. You didn't want anything but the expansion arrows. That would do it. Thank you for posting back how you sorted it out.

Quick Launch- My way

You might see if the free program RocketDock can work for you as well for frequent shortcuts that you use.

The answer may change to maybe.
I doubled the height of the bar and drug QL to the bottom.
So the new TaskBar is on the top row and all of my QL shortcuts
are aligned on the bottom row. I always Auto-Hide the bar anyway.
Plus i chose not to show any desktop items. My desktop is totally
blank because that is the way i like it.



Hope this helps

Hello Dew, and welcome to Seven Forums.

I'm sorry, but I'm not quite sure what you mean. Could you give more details about the problem you are having with Quick Launch?

Thank you,
Shawn

Dew,

I'm not sure what it may be since I do not use VMware. It may be some setting that you need to change it in. Hopefully someone that is more familiar with VMware may know of solution for you on this.

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.
