Problem with quick launch on the taskbar

Q: Problem with quick launch on the taskbar

Hi to all,
I am having a problem with this doggone windows 8 and I had gone to another help site to fix the problem. I had almost got the problem solved and lo and behold I cant access that site anymore. I will give the name of the site and the message I get if you need it.

I was having a problem with my quick launch on the taskbar like in Vista. I had it fixed except the quick launch is now on the right and I don?t have the little arrows that you use to put stuff on the quick launch. Also I don?t have the desktop icon anymore. Thanks in advance for any help.

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/directdownload.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

I'm running Windows xp (sp1), and a while back I noticed that my taskbar was locked at two spaces high, although I did not have the task bar locked. The only way I was able to overcome this was to uncheck "Show Quick Launch". Any ideas on what I did and how to correct it would be appreciated.
 

A:Problem with Quick Launch on Taskbar

Right click on the taskbar and verify that the taskbar is unlocked. Then drag the cursor just over the top edge till it changes shape. The click and drag.

My Vista taskbar icons are set to large and the taskbar is not locked - no problems ever. However, I have just installed the latest Adobe Reader update (9.1.3) and several of the taskbar quick launch 'buttons' show and work but the icons themselves do not show - ie the icons are blank. I have tried re-installing the shortcuts, also changing the icons to small but that makes no difference. Not sure where to go from here? Also carried out a full virus scan but nothing found.

A:Quick Launch Taskbar Icons Problem

Hello Longbelly,

You might see if rebuilding the icon index may help. If not, then you might see if changing the icons for the shortcuts to themselves (default ones) a few times can restore them.

Hope this helps,

Hi All

Whenever I restart the computer or something goes wrong with explorer.exe and it has to close down, the items in QL all revert back to alphabetical order. I have it set up so the ones I use more often, are displayed and the rest are hidden away in the extension. Is there a way I can 'lock' these items in place?

hello, I had this problem before also, Right click on your taskbar near the quick launch icons and scroll down till you see "lock the taskbar", it worked for me.
also if you have alot of icons in your QL grab the dividing line with your mouse and move it to the right a little and you should be able to see more.

I normally use a single-height taskbar. But everytime I add the Quick Launch toolbar to the taskbar, the taskbar doubles in height. I tried grabbing the dividers and sliding them, but they don't move. Any advice? Thanks!
 

Relevancy 80.41%

Today I noticed that there is a small problem in the height of the Win7 taskbar if I select Large icons in the Quick Launch toolbar. (before I always used small icons)

In the Large view the Win7 taskbar doesn't fill the space vertically but is aligned to the top leaving some empty space at the bottom.
Please check the attached screenshots to better understand what I mean.

I know is really a small detail, but maybe someone knows a way around it anyway^^

Thanks!

My friend is coming from XP and has his quick launch toolbar on the top of the desktop and his taskbar on the bottom.

Try using this http://windowsxp.mvps.org/tweakui.htm and see if you can use the additional settings provided on the taskbar features when you decided to manually rearrange them. You can also create a system restore point to gain access to a date when everythingwas working fine as a safety precaution.

I have an XP style Quick Launch bar on my taskbar.* Every once in awhile, such as this morning, it disappears on startup and Sys Restore doesn't bring it back. It's located via %appdata%\Microsoft\Internet Explorer and there's already a Quick Launch folder. Short of recreating it, is there a quick way to bring the whole thing back in one piece? Thanks,

Update: Strange. I created a new Quick Launch toolbar, got rid of show text and show title, and all the links were there to be dragged to the left, only in alphabetical order, per the folder list. So problem solved, something learned. Though not sure why it disappears every so often.

I keep 'losing' my quick-launch icons on the left-hand side of the task-bar. The icons first become inoperative, and shortly afterwards vanish altogether. Hovering the mouse pointer over the quick-launch corner does briefly produce the outline of buttons, and the "tip box", but nothing further. They do return if I re-boot, but are soon gone again. If I right-click-Open Folder, Win explorer opens the folder containing the links, and clicking on those links does work. Any ideas folks?

This problem has been present since MS pushed WinXP Pro SP3.

A:Help with adding quick launch and taskbar items

Right click on All Programs and select explore. Expand “Programs” and drag or paste a shortcut for the program you want to run at startup into the “Startup” folder.

You can just drag icons from your desktop to the quick launch.

To add stuff to the system tray (which is what I think you want to do) you can get one of dozens of freeware tray managers. This one looks like it will do what you want: http://www.gregorybraun.com/TrayTool.html If you don’t like that have a look through this list: http://www.nonags.com/nonags/launch32.html

You might have a look at RunIt. You just right click on the top of the screen and a menu drops down. You can put anything you want in the menu. It is a lot easier than looking through all of the icons in the tray: http://www.webattack.com/get/runit.shtml

I already know how to add the quick launch bar to the taskbar.
(new toolbar, "%USERPROFILE%\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Quick Launch")

But. . . What I want to know is,
Whether there any way to add it to list of toolbars in the taskbar context menu like the address, links, and desktop toolbars?
(So that it will stay in the list of toolbars even when it's turned off, like how it was in Windows XP.)
And can I set this as default for all users?

Hi all I am fairly new to Windows 7 and its quick launch taskbar. However when I started using it once I clicked on a quick launch icon it stacked it to itself after opening. for instance Firefox or Chrome. Now however when I click one it quick launch icon does not "stack" after opening it creates another icon that then does stack. It now does this for everything on my quick launch. Any ideas. I know it is not a big deal but it drives the old lady crazy and I hate hearing about it LOL Thanks for looking and your help.

A:Windows 7 taskbar quick launch Does not stack creates new

Hello Nick, and welcome to Seven Forums.

Technically Quick Launch is a taskbar toolbar and not a pinned item. This is why when you open/run a item from Quick Launch, it will still have a separate icon appear on the taskbar for it's opened window. There's nothing that you could do about this other than pinning the item/program in Quick Launch on the takbar itself instead. This way you could run it from the taskbar instead of Quick Launch.

Hope this helps,

Hi,

The image below shows my current taskbar when I open a window that has a quick-launch icon (e.g. Opera) as you can see it combines the window and the quick-launch icon together however I would like it to create a separate taskbar item rather than doing this. Would this be possible? Are there any programs that fix this? Sorry if this seems like a vague question but it's quite hard to explain when I can't actually show what I want it to look like.

The area in the Taskbar between the Start button and the Quick Launch toolbar appears to be reserved to display open applications.

I currently have three icons showing on my quick launch bar. When I click on these items, they show the shortcut's properties, instead of actually executing like that normally would. But, the icon's on the >> part of the bar execute perfectly. What's more, let's say I take the "Show Desktop" shortcut and move it from the displayed three to the >> part. It works there. So what's the difference? I have no idea. Thanks for any help.

I recently re-installed XP. Before I did this I could drag and drop quick launch icons on to the area at the left end of the task bar, which stayed the same height.
Now when I enable the quick launch toolbar.it comes up above the task bar, so doubling the height, and depriving me of that part of the screen.

I cannot find a solution to this minor problem anywhere, but I find it quite annoying.

Any help towards a solution would be most appreciated.

Try taking your mouse cursor and moving it to the line on top of the task bar till it shows a double arrow, then hold down on the left mouse button and pull it down and then let go of the mouse button. Let us know if that works.

I downloaded a program called Paltalk. It put an icon on my quick launch toolbar. I am using WinME. I went into MSCONFIG, deleted the checkmark next to the program on the startup tab, clicked apply, then OK. I then restarted my computer but the icon was still there. I can exit that program from the icon by right clicking it, but it always reappears when I start up. Is there any other way to find out why I can't delete it, or stop it from appearing when I boot up? Thanks.

A:win 7 task bar/quick launch mini problem.

Hi,
You may have inadvertantly clicked something, but more likely you had a glitch come in from the Microsoft Tuesday Patch udpate that affected your desktop. This could also be from a virus such as a spyware, worm, or rootkit virus. They all like to go after the Windows desktop and scramble it. Lastly, it could be what we call a "random coincidental hardware failure". Read this linked post I just did tonight for a similar problem: Desktop looks like explorer.exe is not running

Specifically take a look at Spunk's Post #3 for instructions on how to reset explore.exe from your Task Manager. This often will fix your problem.

If it doesn't you'll have to go through a series of troubleshooting steps in order to isolate whether or not you have virus/malware, a coincidental hardware failure, or just a random corruption in your Windows/Registry. Read my Post #4 for several things to try if you get to this point. *PAY PARTICULAR ATTENTION TO THE VIRUS SCANNING!* *If you get stuck on what to do here, please visit our VIRUS/MALWARE HELP FORUM see link in my signature below for how to get there; and it's manned by our experts and best it's FREE!!

If SAFE MODE: LAST KNOWN GOOD CONFIGURATION, SYSTEM RESTORE, or WINDOWS REINSTALLATION still do NOT work, you'll need to begin hardware testing and troubleshooting steps. Post back here, and I can give you another link to read for how to do that and what is required.

Let us know how it goes.

Good luck to you!

Hi everyone,

Can someone help me on my small problem I'm having with Windows Quick Lauch Buttons...

As you can see from the picture below, the background blue color is missing and every icons have a white background instead of the original blue color. This happened after the computer was shut off due to the power wall plug being switched off accidentally while the computer is still on. After I booted the computer up, as usual Windows will do a scan check. But on completion of the boot up and scanning, I can see the Quick Launch icons are missing their blue background color.

I thought I was dragging the Real One Player icon out of the tray onto the desktop, but it turned out to be the Show Desktop icon from Quick Launch. (I'm new to XP.) I dragged it back into the quick launch area, but it only created a shortcut. The real, original icon remains on the desktop. And if I move (or delete) it, the shortcut does not work.

I had to restore it after deleting, and it returned to the desktop, not the Quick Launch. Also tried getting rid of the Quick Launch toolbar and rebooting, hoping it would reconfigure itself when I applied Quick Launch toolbar again - no luck. I read how to recreate the file in Notepad, and I guess I can do that, but...I ALREADY have the file and icon, everything I need, don't I?...except it's ON the desktop....

A:[Random problem] the Quick Launch toolbar disappears

Hello Domenek,

You might see if these steps may help.

Quick Launch - Enable or Disable9. Now that you have Quick Launch on the taskbar, you will need to save your current theme (step 4 at this link).
NOTE: If you make any changes to your theme, you will need to save the theme afterwards, or you will lose Quick Launch the next time you restart the computer.

10. If you have a 32-bit Windows 7, then it has been reported that you may need to turn off UAC if Quick Launch is disappearing on you after every restart.


Hope this helps,

But furthermore, like a small extra service, it opens microsoft excel. I've tried to update bios, as the only certified HP driver for win 7 regarding my laptop model.

Hi -

Re-install the drivers for Quick Launch and check if there is a manual setting that can be changed for the now-open-Excel button.

You may have the most recent version by HP. I removed them from my system when running Vista x64 due to problems with QuickPlay and never bothered to install them when testing Windows 7.

Right clickon your desktop and goto new>> folder
make a newfolder and call it hijackthis and move that hijackthis.exe into that folder. THen do another scan. I am assuming you want us to look at your log?

MS seem to have decided that their "pin applications to the taskbar" feature is a much better solution than the Quick Launch bar - otherwise surley they would not have annoyed all those who have been using the Quick Launch bar for years by removing it...

I am getting used to the new taskbar in many respects, but one feature of the Quick Launch bar seems to be missing - I used to be able to drag any document onto the icon of an application in the Quick Launch bar to open the document in that app. This was very useful for opening random files with Notebook, and many other cases. I can't find any way of doing something similar with the taskbar. Is there one?

Thanks - Rowan

A:Quick Launch bar

Hellow Rowan, and welcome to Seven Forums.

You can add the old Quick Launch to the taskbar in Windows 7 if you like.

You can use the Open With feature to temporarily open a file with a program of your choice that supports opening the file type.

To make it easier to open files temporarily with Notepad, you can use the tutorial below to add Open with Notepad.

Open with Notepad - Add or Remove from Context Menu of Files

Hope this helps,

A:quick launch

Hiya

When you say the icons keep changing, are they ones that you have seen before, like Desktop:

http://portal.clicksanangelo.com/clickFind/images/desktop.gif

If not, lets see a log. go to http://forum.aumha.org/downloads/hijackthis.zip , and download 'Hijack This!'.
Unzip, doubleclick HijackThis.exe, and hit "Scan".

When the scan is finished, the "Scan" button will change into a "Save Log" button.
Press that, save the log somewhere, and please copy & paste its contents to the forum.

It will possibly show other issues deserving our attention, but most of what it lists will be harmless or even required, so do NOT fix anything yet.
Someone here will be happy to help you analyze the results.

I heard that the Quick Launch Bar has been removed in Windows 7. I sure hope that isn't true. Maybe someone will write a third party app to replace it. I use it over a hundred times a day. I would miss it greatly.

Hi DwightStegall, welcome to the forums.

If you create a new toolbar (right-click taskbar, toolbars, new toolbar) and in the text field at the bottom, type %AppData%\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Quick Launch this will restore the quick launch toolbar.

Hi can someone tell me how many icons are meant to go into the quicklaunch bar before the little arrow shows up? I thought it was 3 and now have 4 icons with no pop up arrow yet..
 

A:quick launch

First of all the double arrow appears because there is no more space in the taskbar to fit quick launch icons. You can increas the amount of icons dsplayed as quick launch by unlocking the taskbar. This can be done by right-clicking the taskbar and uncheck the part where there is Lock the taskbar. Once this is done you can done move your cursor onto the triple-dotted lne found in the taskbar area near the quick launch icons. The cursor will be transformed into a double-headed arrow which enables to resize the quick lauch area and fit more icons in it without having the double arrow appearing once more. The more u resize the more quick launch icons that fit. Hence there is no limit for the ammount of icons you fit in the quick lauch area.

Hope this helps

WindowsXP Home Edition SP2
I had 7 items in my Quick launch bar with only 4 of them showing.
If I wanted to activate any of the 3 hidden ones, I only had to click on an arrow that used to be in the Taskbar.
to display them and then click the one I wanted
This arrow was next to the last of the 4 visible items.
.I tried to add a printer icon to the Quick launch bar, making it a total of 8 items, and in doing so I lost the small Taskbar arrow and also the small vertical bar that adjusted the length of the Quick launch bar.
I tried getting these back on the Taskbar but have not been able to do so.
How can I do this?.
Is 8 too many to have in the Quick launch bar ?.

Hi guys, i have a minor problem here,

but it keeps anoying me for weeks now. Whenever i rearange my shortcuts in the quicklaunchbar under WinXP ( e.g. all office shortcuts right next to another) and i restart, the order is changed PLUS the bar takes about 1,5 times the space of the size to which i resized it , meaning it takes about 1/3 of my taskbar instead of the 1/5 which would be totally sufficient for the shortcuts i got there.

I tried to completely remove the shortcuts from the quicklaunch folder and put em back in the order i want, i tried to disselect "autoarange symbols" .. but nothing seems to work

any sugestions????

My quick launch bar now shows the icon and the description of the shortcut. For instance I have the E and then "Launch Internet Explorer". In the past I had just the icon, and I would like to return to that. The only thing major that has happened has been the installation of QuickBooks Simple Start 2008. I did not noticed the change until the next day, so I do not know if they are related. If no one has expirienced this before, where in the registry do I find the keys for the quick launch properties?
