All you have to do is create your own folder named Quick Launch, place your shortcuts in it and then go to your Taskbar and add new toolbar and browse for the folder you just created.

Once you have it on the Taskbar, unlock the Taskbar and move it to a position that your happy with and then right click the Toolbar and deselect show text and show title and there you have a fully functional Quick Launch Bar.

You can also follow the tutorial and apply the same option I have described to position and remove unwanted text.

So you've done yours the way you stated? And the Method 3 in the tutorial doesn't allow you to have the icons without the little arrows next to it does it?

Yes I done it as I described and you can take the extra shortcuts for show desktop and change window from the location the Brink mentions in his tutorial, his method will also result in the quick launch acting the same way as mine.
