    OK. First reboot in a few days this morning. And Snipping Tool has once more disappeared.

    Put it back, once again. This is weird! How can a shortcut disappear by it self?

    Hello Kari,

    I'm not sure why or how for this one. It seems to work just fine for the large majority of people, but for just a few unlucky ones, some unknown cause is causing it to disappear after a restart.

    Hopefully after some time with everyone comparing notes that this is happening to, we can come up with a common issue.

    Hello guys. I have a problem. My quick launch disappears on every system restart. I have to add it every time i start my laptop. How can i fix this?

    UAC is turned off, x32 bit system. Theme is saved. Just restarted, still the same - no quick launch.

    I'm losing my nerves because of this.

    First reboot in about a week and Snpping Tool, along with Word and Excel shortcuts gone again. One thing common with these three shortcuts is that I'd added them myself to the Quick Launch. I've installed two new pieces of software this week, RadioGet and Media Player Classic, and their shortcuts (put to Quick Launch automatically by the respective installations) have not disappeared.

    Short: any shortcut I manually put there normally disappears after a reboot. No difference if copy the program or shortcut directly to the Quick Launch folder or drag and drop program or shortcut to the Quick Launch toolbar. Sefl added, it disappears.

    Kari, and everyone that has the issue with the pinned Quick Launch disappearing after a restart,

    You might see if pinning a folder to the taskbar with the shortcuts you wanted and a copy of the ones in Quick Launch would work better instead.

    Hope this helps,

    I would recommend using jumlistlauncher. Get rid of the headache.

    Sorry to ask a simple question, but I have created the Quick launch toolbar - how do I add the icons to it and get them away from the taskbar (like I can in Vista/XP) ? to tidy up the view?

    Hello ColourFly, and welcome to Seven Forums.

    You can add shortcuts to Quick Launch by adding the shortcuts into the hidden system folder location at:

    C:\Users\(user-name)\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Quick Launch

    Pinning Quick Launch to the taskbar is the same as pinning a folder (above) to it. You can strech or condense the pinned folder on the taskbar using step 8D in this tutorial to how you want it displayed on the taskbar.

    Hope this helps,

    I love you (in a manly, sports-hug, platonic way of course)!!!

    The lack of Quick Launch was driving me crazy and had me nearly about to ask my IT group to put me back on XP. I was mistaking those stupid "pinned programs" as QL.

    My W7 is a brand new config (build 7600). Your steps worked perfect for me and I am VERY grateful for this thread.

    Now if I can just find a solution to my #1 annoyance: Huddled Icons (not group similiar, but huddled). I want to have multiple instances of the same program running but NOT have them stay huddled together on the bar. I want to move them around like I could under XP. i.e. have an Explorer window or 2, then a browser, then my text editor, then another explorer or 2, another browser, etc... My search continues.

    Thank you so much!

    You're welcome Tjoe, and welcome to Seven Forums.

    You can drag the pinned or open icons to any order on the taskbar, but I have not seen a way to have separate multiple say Internet Explorer icons yet.
