    Point four - i quote:
    Open the hidden Quick Launch folder in the NOTE box above, then right click in the folder and click on New and Shortcut to add a shortcut into Quick Launch instead.
    I don't have understand how i need to do...... open the quicklaunch folder in the NOTE.. ok i reach the folder. Inside of this i can watch a hidden folder called "User Pinned"........ i need to create inside this folder a new shortcut to same exaxt folder ? It's right ? And after this ?
    This would be to create the shortcut directly in the Quick Launch folder instead of dragging and dropping item on Quick Launch on the taskbar.

    The next point - i quote:
    Create a new folder, copy the shortcuts in the Quick Launch folder above into the new folder, then pin the new folder to the taskbar instead just like the Quick Launch folder here.
    It's a second parts of Precedent point ?? I don't have undestand ? how i need to create a new folder ? And the quick launch shortcut it's the same shortcut created on Point four ? I don't have understand this parts..........

    The last point - Speak again about fix.......... i already explain i can't apply......
    This is to create a new folder where you like, create shortcuts you want in this new folder, then pin the folder to your taskbar to use instead of Quick Launch. The tutorial link in that point will show you how to pin a folder to the taskbar.

    Ah ok... i understand this workaround but it's not the same result at the end :)

    Yeah, it's only a workaround and not quite the same as Quick Launch, but both are essentially a toolbar on the taskbar.

    mmmmmmmm.... you can know if it's possible to create a multichoice folder on main start menu ?

    For now i have pinned this "folder" on my start menu... here the screenshot:

    But if it's possible to create a multichoice folder i thinks it's a great feature.......... apparently here it's no possibly to obtain but it's possible to obtain this only if i create a folder in "All Programs" section.....

    Otherwise after some search over internet and also in other italian forum i have found a registry value when it's this "Quick Launch" toolbars it's been stored.

    I have exported this section of my registry:
    Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
    Apparently after X days this value it's disappering itself from registry and the quicklaunch disappears.
    When it's append i can now re-add this .reg files but i need also after to kill the explorer.exe process and immediatelly relaunch it and the quick lauch toolbars reappears.
    I thinks it's impossible to know because this value it's disappering and how i know if this appening in shutdown procedure on during the login operation...............

    You could use the free program "Classic Shell" customize the Start Menu like that.

    It is a nuisance when the Quick Launch bar disappears and pinning on the taskbar is not a good alternative, since there the icons a bigger and with more distance between so that they occupy a lot more space.
    The hotfix KB979155 is supposed to remedy this but apparently only installs in Windows 7 "SP0" and not SP1...
    Is there any trick to get it installed in SP1?

    However, I have another solution:
    Microsoft informs: "When you restart the computer, any customizations that you
    made to the Taskbar are lost and the Taskbar is reset to its default settings. ... This problem occurs
    because of a race condition between Windows Explorer and Taskhost.exe.
    So I use Startup Delayer to delay the start of taskhost.exe by 40 seconds. So far, it has not happened again.

    What I have in mind could be to install the hotfix from the cab file in the expanded msu file. Can that be done? How? I would like to give it a try...

    It won't hurt to try and install it via the .cab file, but you should be able to just double click on the .msu file to install it if you like. :)

    Sure - if only the msu file would install in Win7 SP1......
    But it does not, see above. Apparently only in "SP0"
    That is why I would like to use the cab file as a workaround.
    Thanks for the link!

    Quick Launch enable where is Method 3

    Cannot find an Option or Method 3 for enabling Quick Launch. Other method does not work now - Windows refuses to allow the characters in the suggested copy and paste text.
