Windows 7 offers a brand new user-interface with new eye-candy superbar. But surely, you will miss Quick Launch Bar which was available in Windows Vista, Windows XP and all older versions of Windows. Let me share an easy way to quickly add the launch bar back in the Windows 7 taskbar.
First of all, right click on the Taskbar and choose Toolbars > New toolbar.
Now, type the following text in the address bar and hit Enter.
%appdata%\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Quick Launch
Click the Select Folder button and thats it, the Quick Launch toolbar will be added to the right side of the Taskbar.
Now if you want to adjust it to the left side of the taskbar, then use the dotted lines to drag it to the left side, but first make sure that you have unlocked the task bar. Task bar can be unlocked by right clicking in the task bar and unchecking the lock option.
Usually the Quick Launch bar in Windows Vista and XP don’t have text, so right-click on the dotted lines and uncheck Show Text as well as Show Title from the menu.
Here is how the final Windows 7 Quick Launch will look like.
