Quick Launch at wrong place

Q: Quick Launch at wrong place

Normally the Quick Launch is located right besides the Start button, but the one on my w7x64 is away from it and the space between the Start button and the Quick Launch area appears to be the task bar where icon(s) is placed whenever program(s) is launched. How can this be corrected? The os is W7 Ultimate x64 SP1.

Preferred Solution: Quick Launch at wrong place

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/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

i am using xp pro and i only display 3 icons in the quick launch area of the taskbar. they are a/v, speaker vol, and firewall. these used to show up within seconds of the desktop being displayed. however, the a/v icon pops up right away, on startup, but the speaker and firewall icons wont show up for 2-3 minutes. during this time, the machine s usable (slightly slow). now i use Codestuff Starter v5.6.1.19 to control my startup items and only the 3 previously mentioned are included there. when this first started, i did a restore from when it was good and that didnt help. i am not adverse to a format if necessary. i need your help/advice and tkz in advance, aloha

I now have these quick launch buttons working but I was wondering how can I change the defaut programns they open. e.g. The email button opens Outlook but I want it to open Windows Live Mail.
REP will be given.

A:Launch Manager (Quick Launch Buttons)

Is Outlook your current default E-Mail program?

You can change the default program to Windows live mail by selecting the start orb and the Default Programs.
Then choose, Select the default program. Here you should select Windows Live mail.

I was on the XMB waiting for some trailers to finish downloading when my ps3 froze. When I went to turn it back on there was no display on the tv I don't get the YLOD I just see the normal green light. I've tried the reset method (two beeps) and I've tried using HDMI and the AV cable that came with it but I still don't get anything on my screen.

I just rang Sony service centre who told me they don't repair the launch ones (despite offering me a refurbished launch model if I give them £131)

Because I want to keep all the data on my ps3 (yeah yeah I should have had a back up ) I would rather get it repaired so I can access the hdd.

Does anybody know any reliable companies in the UK that will fix my ps3 and not just send me another?

i guess i'm newer than i thought i was......a friend gave me a new monitor that is larger than my old one....so i have a lot of black screen ......wish i could fix this...if someone could help or redirect me, i would appreciate it....thank you
 

A:may be in the wrong place

The monitor you have now, as the old monitor you had, should have some buttons or knobs on the front of it. These are used to resize the image, adjust it's position etc. Try them out looking for the obvious such as a knob with an image that looks like it will stretch it etc. Also, you might want to adjust your settings to a different resolution. For example: 800X600, 1024X768 etc. To do that, just right click on an empty space on your desktop, select PROPERTIES, then left click on SETTINGS, then move the slider under SCREEN AREA. Hope this helps, T.

I got broadband last week and we're only allowed 2GB monthly usage limit (hehe, well it is cheap). I was wondering if streaming videos counts towards this, like does it take up disk space? And is there any chance of viruses? Thanks, pretty random, but I'd like to know.

A:ok this is probably the wrong place, but...youtube

Hi...

Yes that will count towards your 2GB monthly allowance...everything you get from the internet will count (emails, webpages, videos, music etc).

It does take up disk space but once you clear your temporary internet files, that will solve the problem.

As with the risks of internet use, there is a chance of picking up spyware/viruses by downloading content....but the chances are far less with reputable sites.

Hope that helps :)

A friend has just created a new subdomain of his existing site. If I go to http://www.newsubdomain.existingsite.com, I see the host's generic "new site will be available soon" message. BUT if I go to http://newsubdomain.existingsite.com (that is, the same address, but without the leading "www."), I wind up on the site for some perfectly innocent-looking automotive specialty parts distribution company. (It looks like they mostly sell to retailers, not the public, so it makes no sense at all for them to be complicit in this apparent hijacking, although someone could have put something malicious on their site, I guess.)My computer is a laptop running WinXP Pro. AVG, spybot and Ad-aware scans find nothing amiss. The machine has no other symptoms of any kind of infection, afaict.The problem shows up regardless of whether I use Firefox or IE, but another machine on my home-network does NOT have this problem, so I know it's not a case of my ISP's DNS cache having been poisoned. I did run ipconfig /flushdns from a command prompt; that didn't fix it.Could this just be some simple corrupted record somewhere, or must we conclude a malware infection?TIA!!!

Hi, has anyone ever experienced this, in Win XP?

I'll try to explain the best I can... my father (on his computer), was playing around with his taskbar putting it on the sides to see if he'd like there, I guess...

Now he's got repeats of his icons from the desktop sitting on his taskbar, fullsize. We tried to delete them, but if we did, they would also delete the twin that's on the desktop. I found this too be so weird, his taskbar is now about an inch and a quarter high, and we could not reduce it.

Has anyone ever seen such a glitch?

I don't think a restore would do anything, it being icons...

I have WINDOWS XP, and can't figure out what other topic this question might belong in...

I don't know when or how it happened, but two file folders MY SHARED DOCUMENTS and CARRIE'S DOCUMENTS are now in MY COMPUTER.

MY COMPUTER, where it shows the drives. I am pretty sure it never had yellow folders in it before.

I think they should be in C DRIVE? There is a MY DOCUMENTS in C Drive, but it has nothing in it. I'm the only one who uses this computer, but apparenty everything saved goes into CARRIE'S DOCUMENTS. SHARED DOCUMENTS has various folders in it that I suppose would be shared by all, if others used the computer, too.

I've tried dragging them there (or anywhere) but only shortcuts appear in the new area. The folders still say in MY COMPUTER. They won't copy and paste.

When I open something, like in WORD, etc. I can still find them, just they are under MY COMPUTER.

So, they still work, it just seems strange, like they shouldn't be in MY COMPUTER. Unless I have totally missed this for the past year, I don't remember ever seeing them in there before. I take pictures off my memory card with a removable drive, which shows up as F drive, so I look in MY COMPUTER to click on this, all the time.

What happened and how can I fix it? Actually, since it seems to work this way, the only reason to fix it seems to be it looks odd this way.

A:This question may be in the wrong place

Personally I would not 'fix' anything in the Registry. Yes there may be a few broken links but they will be taking up minimal space and will probably not cause your system to slow down that you would notice.. Better to defrag your hard disc and run something like Cleanup! to clear out your temp files etc.

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

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.

Hey,

I've been using Windows XP SP2 for a long time now but something is now wrong with my quick launch icons. Just yesterday, once of my icons seem to have duplicated itself on the bar and I tried to delete it but it wouldn't let me and I couldn't even launch the program anymore.

I ended up restarting the computer but this time, my quick launch icons showed up in a random order. Like it wasn't in the order that I put it in, it somehow randomized itself. Also that one shortcut didn't work, so I ended up deleteing the shortcut and making a new one.

Now I shut down my computer and turned it back on, and my icons randomized again. I tried to also close the quick launch and turn it back on BUT now it was randomized AND the icons are really really big. Like the quick launch icons are the size of the desktop icons but they're on the task bar.

This is really annoying and I can't figure out what's wrong. Any suggestions on how to fix this?

Thanks

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????

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

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,
Shawn

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 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

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?

Many thanx in advance,

Joe

If you use the Factory Recovery media all the settings should be there. So what Install did you u?

This has me baffled!

I use the Quick Launch Bar for my most often used programs and also for my most used Excel Spreadhseets. In the past, I'be been able to drag these links to Excel spreadsheets to the Quick Launch Bar, and the pop-up tooltip will display the Shortcut Name I've applied at the desktop. Recently however, as I've dragged new Excel links onto the Quick Launch Bar, rather than tooltips displaying the shortcut name, it now displays the file type, file uathor, filte title and file size. Older links continue to properly display only the shortcut name under tooltips.

What's wro0ng?

Thanks,

Not sure what's going on here. I have a user who's quick launch icons are completly messed up. We have restarted several times, even reloaded the desktop icon folder in hopes this would help. Nothing seems to work, what's even more odd, the icons don't match the program that opens. If you click on the word icon the email program will open. Anyone know what may be happening?

I attached a picture of the task bar so you would know what I was talking about.
