Where is Quick Launch Toolbar in Windows 7?

by Marin Franković on 29 January, 2009

Well, there is no Quick Launch Toolbar in Windows 7 taskbar. Not by default at least. 🙂 Since you can “pin” applications to taskbar, QLTB has lost its meaning. But, there is a solution for your problems:

  • Right-click the taskbar, choose Toolbars / New Toolbar
  • In the folder selection dialog, enter the following string and hit OK:
    %userprofile%\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Quick Launch
  • Turn off the ?lock the taskbar? setting, and right-click on the divider. Make sure that ?Show text? and ?Show title? are disabled and the view is set to ?small icons?.
  • Use the dividers to rearrange the toolbar ordering to choice, and then lock the taskbar again.

Here is a screen shot of the Quick Launch Toolbar in Windows 7 taskbar.
