Windows 7: Quick Launch folder issue

Hello Tendancy,

Here's a copy of the "Quick Launch" folder from my system in a ZIP file. If you like you can download it, extract the "Quick Launch" folder to your Desktop, right click on each shortcut in the folder and click on "Properties", "General" tab and "Unblock", then move it into the "C:\Users\Luc\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Internet Explorer" folder.

Hope this helps,
Shawn

I already tried it by making a copy of it from the Default account, but alright I extracted it directly to: "C:\Users\Luc\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Internet Explorer" let me reboot and see what happens.

Nar, you will need to extract the folder to your desktop first, then right click on each shortcut in the folder and click on "Properties", "General" tab and "Unblock", then move it into the "C:\Users\Luc\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Internet Explorer" folder.

If not, you would have to click on the "Open" button everytime you used a shortcut in Quick Launch.

Unblock? It wasn't even blocked, so there was nothing to unblock.

I tried your Quick Launch folder, and it's like completely the same settings-wise. For the rest I don't see why my own folder wouldn't work, and yours would. I can ofcourse copy my current favourites into the Quick Launch folder sent by you.

If the order gets reset again, I will let you know.

May I make a suggestion. Rather than using the tweaked Quick Launch, I suggest you use the toolbars that do exactly the same but are a lot more flexible and offer a lot more options. And a toolbar is repaired in a couple of minutes should something happen. If you have a minute, watch my little video tutorial and you will see. Toolbars - How to Use in Windows 7 and Vista

I appreciate your suggestion, and I will definitely look into it. But at first I want my Quick Launch to be fixed without having to do a restore or a system reset. I have a feeling that it's a specific option within my Quick Launch folder.

If not, I'm kinda lost! :P

Okay since there aren't any solutions available on the internet, I had to find one myself. Well I found one, hope it lasts long enough! :) This is how they look like when sorted automatically..

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.
