    I have managed to get my taskbar to look just like a Windows 7 version of the Vista taskbar.



    However, with the pinning objects to the taskbar option, the Quick Launch really is unnecessary. That is only, however, if I can get the "Show Desktop" shortcut to pin itself to the taskbar. That's the only thing I use Quick Launch for, as I've found the taskbar gets too crowded with programs that are running to have shortcuts on it as well. I use ObjectDock for that purpose. Is there a way to pin the shortcut for "Show Desktop" onto the taskbar?

    I know it's in the bottom right corner as a simple button, but it's also surrounded by my clock and the system tray, and also I'm used to it's previous location. Is there any way to do this?
    Hello Rarisgold,

    This can help show you how to create and pin a "Show Desktop" shortcut on the taskbar.

    Good Post


    Thanks very much for the Quick Launch post. I have been using Windows 7 over year now. At first I thought the task bar was a good thing and in some ways it is. However, with quick launch, I can get many more icons on the bar and I can right click an icon and see its properties and change them if I wish. I can also run two or more instances of the same program from the quick launch bar.

    Therefore, I use both bars.

    When I click the expand arrow to show all the programs I have on quick launch, it shows a blank screen area. It takes like 5 seconds before the icons actually show.

    Hello Chaoz,

    You might see if the fade, slide, and taskbar animation type Visual Effects settings being turned on may be affecting this. Test by unchecking them.

    Speeding up the Menu Show Delay time may help as well.

    Anyone know how to get the keyboard shortcuts to work with quicklaunch? I don't have anything pinned to the taskbar, only QL. And i can't get (Windows key) + (1-9) to work, although the first time i added the QL it DID work. Then i took it away to try the new taskbar again before deciding to return to QL, but now i can't get the keyboard shortcuts to work

    Hello Intotheblue, and welcome to Seven Forums.

    Sorry, but the keyboard shortcuts no longer work for QuickLaunch like they did in Vista. Instead the keyboard shortcuts are for the separate pinned icons on the taskbar.

    Ah thx, and thx for the quick reply. I could have sworn that the first time i unpinned everything from the taskbar and added QL i got keyboard shortcuts to work, (used windows + 5) so i knew it wasn't hitting win+1 to bring up the first open window or anything. Guess i was just imagining things?

    Chaoz,

    Do you have these type of delays when opening or expanding anything else?

    It's a bit drastic, but you could try a repair install to try and fix it without losing anything.
