Quick Lanuch is not enabled in Windows 7 but there are some things you can do...

1) Pin the Excel icon to the Superbar and pin the workbook on the excel icon. YOu can right click the excel icon and choose the workbook that way
2) You can make a dummy look-alike Quick Lanuch: Quick Launch - Enable or Disable might be more to your fancy

If this is all that holds you back from 7...than welcome to Windows 7 sense their is no reason to stick with Vista now
what about this? would this work?

It seems to me that it would work without a hitch...though enabling the Quick Launch might be better for you...

At least you know alternatives are out there!

i think i'd be ok with the default way windows 7's taskbar works for most things, but i would like the ability to also pin shortcuts to documents that open with one click (vista quicklaunch style). imo, microsoft should allow us to mix both of these methods in the taskbar.

Their pushing Jumplists...which is really a nice way to do things (avid user of them myself) but I understand their not for everyone...at least you know that you can pin the documents to the bar at the bottom with no issue

Quick launch by its definition must be quick, right clicking an icon and then having to scroll to the top of a list is far from it . MS should have not pushed this on us. As with the stupid start menu it should have run parallel as an option as per vista and xp. In the case of jump lists it could have been another toolbar so you could have used either or both.

I cannot find a working link anywhere as to how to re enable or botch the quick launch?

any ideas please ?

Many Thanks

Keep up the good work

Was going to tell you all about this awsome tip concerning the Jumplist, but atlas its no longer there in the RTM. Goes like this, left-click on the icon but hold it down, pushing the cursor up pushes the Jumplist up in sync. Now if you moved your mouse all the way to the top (off the Jumplist) while still holding the left mouse button down, you could then make a select in the Jumplist releasing the left button would open that selection.

However, it no longer appears to work in RTM. You can still push the Jumplist out but you cannot make a selection.
