Add Quick Launch back into Windows 7

leave a comment »

Sure, Windows 7 combines the Quick Launch bar and Taskbar, but some people might miss the old Quick Launch bar. This post shows you how to get Quick Launch back into Windows 7.

First, right-click the taskbar, select “Toolbars”, then click “New toolbar”

Next, type(or copy and paste) “%SystemDrive%\Users\%username%\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Quick Launch” into the “Folder” box, then click “Select Folder”

Yay! You now have the Quick Launch bar!

Next, if you want to set the Quick Launch where it’s supposed to be, just unlock the taskbar(right-click the taskbar, then uncheck “Lock the taskbar”), then drag the Quick Launch bar over to the left of the taskbar(or wherever you want it). You can also get rid of the toolbar and button titles by right-clicking the “Quick Launch” text and un-checking the “Text” and “title” check boxes.
