    So if I use the one tutorial that's up now, (formerly the 3rd method), does anybody know if it's possible to switch the places of Quick Launch (essentially the 'Toolbar' I just added to the Taskbar) and the main Taskbar items (including pinned items and open windows), putting the QL 'Toolbar' in front of that one? Back where it's supposed to be? Or is that impossible?

    Don't worry, I realize the name "Quick Launch" is a misnomer.

    Honestly, the only reason I use it is because there are so many programs I use on such a regular basis that I love having all the shortcuts down there on my taskbar. I use it purely for convenience and out of habit.

    And I don't have shortcuts on my desktop because I like to have as few icons as possible on my desktop. Ideally, I wish I only had MyComputer and the Recycle Bin, but I'm not yet that disciplined. And I don't use the Start Menu for frequently-used programs because...well...I just don't.

    LoL

    ChemKneazle,

    Sorry, but no.

    You might see if the free program RocketDock can work for you as well for frequent shortcuts that you use.

    Hi Brink,
    Appropos this conversation. I use a little known Microsoft utility called Desktop. I run it resident. It gives me access to four separate desktops. I have built these, with Shortcut icons, into, you could say, folders. For example, the main one is pretty much the default, with all the standard desktop icons. Number 2 is my office desktop. Office, Excel, Wordpad etc. ..and so on.

    Dave,

    That sounds like a very handy little utility program to have. :)

    Pinning programs to the taskbar has largely negated the need for quicklaunch imo.

    Hi Swarfega,

    Agreed, but some folks still like to have it. :)

    Why would you want to use quick launch, when you have this cool dock now? It's like selling your new car for an old one, because you like the old car smell.
