On the left side? Pinnable items can only be added to the right side of the quicklaunch bar.

Pin the items


Generally pinned items placed beside or leftside the "start menu button",
But i want to place right side or beside "show hidden icons area".

you could make yourself a quicklaunch toolbar, and position it to the right, next to the 'notification area'

but these will not be proper pinned icons...only shortcuts.

i'm sorry, i don't know any other methods.

let's hope somebody reads this thread soon who does know.

White noise on left speakers/left side of headphone
There's this annoying white noise on my left speakers(Logitech X-540 Speakerset), though I think it's not my speakers that are causing it, but something else, because when I connect my iPod to my speakers there's no white noise. So I was wondering if anyone could tell me how to get rid of this...
