    Yep, that's step 8B: You don't move the QL bar left, you need to move the taskbar right of the QL bar as stated in Brink's tutorial.

    Hello MJ08, and welcome to Seven Forums.

    Did you unlock the taskbar first? (step 8A)

    Hope this helps,
    Shawn

    Excellent Tutorial Brink!


    That was probably the easiest tutorial I've tried to follow yet. It was clear, concise, to the point. I find that most of the time they will over-explain the process which just overwhelms a noob such as myself, the illustrations made it even easier. Thanks for the help.

    RE: Having Issues Launching Hidden Programs In The Quick Launch Bar?


    Hello. I need your help with this issue.

    I have successfully added the Quick Launch Bar to my Windows 7 Professional over a week ago. Since then I have added several programs where now I have exceeded the icons displayed in the quick launch bar. I have no intentions of extending the size of the quick launch bar across the lenght of my taskbar. Now, maybe I have overlooked this or someone here may of already posted this particular issue; but as I keep adding programs to the quick launch, I am now getting them placed invisible behind the double right arrow now. If I single click on the double right arrow, I get a vertical listing of the program icons that are hidden above the double right arrow. Okay, this is like Windows XP or Vista's quick launch bar's actions with hidden program icons. Now, if I click on any one of the hidden program icons in the vertical listing of the quick launch bar, NOTHING HAPPENS (None of them launch!)! That is strange, because if I clicked on any one of the hidden programs icons in the quick launch bar in Windows Vista and XP, they would launch. Hmmm... ...no launching here? Something happening? What is different now? Is there a way for me to get the hidden programs icons in the quick launch bar to launch if they were not meant to be at this point?

    Please reply.

    Thank you!

    There was a maximum of 10 shortcuts in Vista, I don't suppose the number has been increased in Windows 7 since the feature was removed.

    You should move your most important shortcuts to the Taskbar, keep the next important ones in the QL bar and use the Start menu for the less frequently used apps. Some apps may have been programmed to show in the System Tray/Notification Area, in which case you can remove them from QL and configure the System Tray to make them visible (vertical arrow "Show hidden icons").

    Tips:

    • I have my QL bar/Task bar set on 2 lines, expanding vertically instead of horizontally.
    • Instead of adding shortcuts to applications in your QL, you can create subfolders in your QL folder, for instance Video, Games, Media Players, etc. These folders will act as a second layer of menu, you'll just need to populate these subfolders with the appropriate shortcuts. I don't do that in my QL bar, 10 shortcuts is plenty for me, but I have 7 such subfolders in my \Users\All Users\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs folder: Accessories, Applications, Complements, Games, Media Players, Startup, Web Browsers, and just a single shortcut for Windows Update.

    there is no such limit, I currently have 19 icons in my quick launch without problems, unlock the taskbar and then drag the bar right so there is enough room for them without the arrow.

    Cool, then I don't know what's blocking montecarlo1987 if it's not what you said.
    Meh, my previous link was deleted, my post is not so helpful anymore.

    yeah I can see why 10 would be seen as a big issue, as my taskbar is 4 high, I also raised the height, so to fit 19 on its not that wide. Only about 1/20th the width.
