Windows 7: How to activate 'Quick Launch' for 'All Users'?

How to activate 'Quick Launch' for 'All Users'?

I managed to reactivate the 'Quick Launch' Folder under Win7. Disadvantage: I need to synchronize the content for every user. Means 'Quick Launch ' differs a lot from e.g. Start Menu\Programs or Autostart where I can place my content into the 'All Useres' branch and will see a combination of my personal folders and the 'All Useres' folders.

Is there any way to activate 'Quick Launch' for 'All Users'?

As far as I know this used to be the same under WinXP. But maybe someone remembers a patch that coud be applied to WinXP and would now run under Win7 too.

Hi Blacksmith

You could add it to the Default User profile. Then, when the users login and their local profile is initially created, it would be a standard configuration.

The change would be different here in win 7 than in XP. I suggest you google quick launch in win 7 and apply the change to the default profile


Good luck

Quick Launch
When I take the Quick Launch bar off the taskbar, and then put it back on, all the icons are organized completely different. Is there any way to make it always stay the same?

Quick Launch bar
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.
