    Hello Windy, :)

    There's not an Option 3 in the tutorial.

    Were you not able to copy and paste the path in step 2 of Option 1 to create a Quick Launch toolbar?

    Okay, I started this a couple weeks ago and then got derailed onto other things and had to leave it be until now, so I have sort of forgotten just exactly what I had done to get as far as I have.
    The answer to my question may very well be somewhere in this 38-page thread, but my poor eyes gave up on finding it.
    I hope I can explain my situation such that it can be understood.
    I have now got a Quick Launch residing on the right end of my task-bar; task-bar is un-locked.
    When I grab the dotted lines to slide the quick launch to the left, it "strings out" with all the quick launch icons trailing behind, and "piles up" all of my task bar icons ahead of it as I drag.
    As soon as I start moving the quick launch, a little bar appears with two arrows, one pointing up, the other down; clicking either of these arrows scrolls through the task bar icons that have disappeared ahead of my moving the quick launch.
    When I drag task bar icons to the right of the quick launch, they just jump back to the left side.
    Nothing about this is cooperating like the directions say.
    What am I doing wrong ?

    Thanks for reading.

    Hello BuckSkin, :)

    When you drag the dotted line to the left of the taskbar icons to the right of the Quick Launch dotted lines, the taskbar icons should jump all the way to right. Once this happens, you can drop them, and adjust as needed.

    Be sure to not drag them above the taskbar. Doing so will cancel the drag, and could be what's causing them to jump back to the left side.

    Thanks so much!
    That bit you said about the pair of dotted lines to the left of the task bar icons is where I was missing the boat; I was not noticing that pair of lines.
    When I saw those lines, grabbed them and dragged the task bar icons to the right, it worked on my first attempt.

    EDIT: Disregard This : "Now, two more questions: how do I add programs to my new quick launch and can I add something like "pin to quick launch" in my right-click context menu ?"

    EDIT: I just found the answer to both questions here:

    Hello SlipshodOak76,

    Quick Launch is basically just a folder added as a toolbar to the taskbar.

    There is not a way to add just Quick Launch via regedit since all toolbars are stored in the same binary value in the registry and is impossible to ID separate toolbars.

    However, as a workaround, once you add Quick Launch using the tutorial here, you can back up your toolbars to a .reg file using the method in the tutorial below, and be able to restore the .reg file as needed.
