Every time I reboot, I have to relaunch the Quick Launch Toolbar. Although this is easy to do, is there a way to have it launch automatically? This problem started about 1 week ago. Thanks,

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,
Shawn

Hello, im new here

The quick launch disappears when I reboot. Then I have to re-enable it with

"%userprofile%\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Quick Launch".


I read another thread that says the clue is to do this:

"go to Start ?> Run ?> regedit

and find the following key:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESoftwareMicrosoftWindows
CurrentVersionPoliciesExplorer

On the right hand pane select NoSaveSettings and make sure its value is 0."

This thread is for XP, but I guess it is also a solution in windows 7 also.



I tried to do this, but I only have up to policies. Policies is empty.

Somebody know something about this? How to get the quick launch to stay, not disappear?

Hi all,
Previously I had my computer setup so that the QUICK LAUNCH toolbar would display program icons when my computer was started. Now, whenever I reboot, the toolbar disappears and I have to right click on the task bar, select toolbars, and select Quick Launch.

Any ideas why this may be happening or how to prevent this from being removed each time. I tried locking the taskbar, but that didn't help.

I am running Windows XP Home Edition on a Dell Dimension 8250.

Thanks!

To help guys with similar situation after trying all the methods spelled with the previous post

1. check that the path "C:\Documents and Settings\ <whatever profile/username> \Application Data\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Quick Launch" existed

3. do this: re-create (mkdir) the folders according, then goto check the "show quick launch" to enable the feature again!

The most likely explanation for the missing folders is due to some programs which includes viruses must have deleted those folders.

I have unwanted programs inserted into my quick launch toolbar. How do I stop this from happening?

A:quick launch toolbar

you can "right mouse button click" on any program icon that you don't want and select delete, and it'll be gone.

often when you install a new program it'll offer you the option of not creating a quick launch icon, ie, if you read what's coming up on the screen instead of clicking "ok" all the way through the installation steps :)

but ofcourse some programs don't :( then you just have to delete it manually after.

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.

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 came across a solution and am using that as an interim workaround but would like to permanently solve this problem. The solution is to create a folder under %Appdata%\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Quick Launch and then manually paste shortcuts of things that I like in my Quick Launch Toolbar.

Hi

I have Windows Vista Home Premium and I am having a problem with the Quick Launch Toolbar. Hopefully someone can give me some help or ideas please?

I removed some software that I had been trialling (an automatic defrag program) using an uninstaller that I have been using for years without any problems previously. Since then, my Quick Launch toolbar keeps losing its settings on a re-boot/boot up of my computer and instead of having my icons in a nice order over two lines, the icons become sorted in to one line alphabetically. I have tried a registry hack of "NoSaveSettings" but this hasn't worked.

It's frusrating as I thought I had it sorted last night. When I booted up my computer today, they were where I expected them to be. I then shut down my computer and came back to it later today. Booted up and this time they had all lost their positions and were in one line again. It's almost as if Vista has two boot-up routines and depending on the time of day, it decides on which one to use!! it is very frustrating and I am looking for ideas as to how I can stop this happening without having to either start all over again by re-installing Vista, or setting up a new profile and then spending ages transferring everything across.

Any thoughts or suggestions gratefully accepted.

Thanks

Steve

This is hardly an earthshaking problem, but I'd love to know how to put a stop to it.

I have a four miscellaneous applications and one shortcut to an Excel document pinned to my Quick Launch toolbar. Every so often I notice that the icons are missing, the reason being that the toolbar is turned off. When I notice this, I simply turn the toolbar back on from the Taskbar right-click menu. I haven't been paying enough attention to be sure, but I think the problem occurs at boot-up. Maybe one time in three the toolbar doesn't show up. I've never seen the toolbar disappear once the machine is booted up and running. Locking the taskbar doesn't have any effect on the problem.

I'm running XP SP3 and it is current with all patches installed.

Anybody out there have a theory on why this is happening?

Have you 'locked' the task bar?

About 2-3 times a year, my quick launch toolbar gets turned off. I know how to turn it back on (right-click | toolbars | check quick launch). But when it reappears, I find that it has been resorted alphabetically. (Grrrr.)
 
I would like a way to stop it from getting resorted. Failing that, I'd like a way to save a copy that I can then restore if it gets screwed up.
 
Thanks

A:Quick launch toolbar gets turned off and resorted

You can't always prevent it, but the closest thing you can do is
 
1.  Redo it the way you want (which you've obviously done before), then when finished,
2. Right-click on the taskbar and select 'Lock the Taskbar'.
3. As an added precaution, do the same in the Start Menu (right-click on Start menu then Properties, Taskbar Tab, then be sure 'Lock' is checked).
4.  You can't really save your toolbar because its contents are in the registry, so you can't override it.  But you can get something like ScreenHunter 6.0 Free and take screenshots of your Quick Launch.  The QL folder is in C:\Documents and Settings\yourusername\Application Data\Microsoft\InternetExplorer\QuickLaunch
 
Here's a problem, though: you MIGHT not be able to add any shortcuts to the QL now that it's locked, nor can you move them around anymore, though I've not had that problem.
 
Second problem: when you have a LOT of those shortcuts, you'll wish they would sort in alpha order.  To make them do that, you have to unlock the taskbar, and then do what I did in this video, here.  I show the steps live, harder to explain than to just show.  The video shows Win7, but the mechanics are the same for XP through Windows 10.
 
Now, maybe you're not interested in anything but Steps 1-4, but at least now you know how your QL disappears and everything is suddenly sorted alpha.  It's a consequence of some program being added to the QL total, and there are so many a... Read more

I started my system today and the quick launch is gone? I removed the classicshell form the registry, I copied the quick launch profile to all users. I even tried to drag a shortcut of the quick launch to the toolbar. Nothing. I can't even right mouse click on the toolbar. No menus pop up. When I click in the system tray by the clock I get the standard flyup menu. When I go to toolbars everything is greyed out. When I right click on the start menu I get a standard flyup menu that has open, explore ect. No porperties though. I can right click on the open windows in the toorbar lik emy browser.

Does anyone have an idea?

Thanks
 

A:Enable quick launch/no rich click on toolbar

Right click Start, select Properties, Taskbar tab and check the settings. If that does not work try a System Restore from Help where it is easy to find.

Good luck.

I have Windows xp and a Broadband connection. I want to put IE 6 & OE 6 onto my Quick Launch Toolbar, so that they launch automatically rather then me having to click on them. When I drag the icons to the QL TB they do not stay there. What can I do, if anything?
 

A:Internet Explorer 6/OutlookExpress 6 onto Quick Launch Toolbar

Right click on the taskbar and uncheck "Lock The Taskbar" then drag them onto the QL bar.

However that won't launch them automatically, thats just so you can easily single click on them no matter what you're doing without using the desktop icons or Start Bar.

To have programs automatically start when you boot your computer you need to put them in the startup folder in the programs list. You can also just drag them into that folder. I personally wouldn't want them open everytime I started the computer though.
