Windows 7: How to Enable the Quick Launch Bar

By default, Windows 7 does not have the Quick Launch toolbar that most Windows users are familiar with. If you wish to keep using this form of navigation, or if you’ve upgraded your computer to Windows 7 and want to use your old Quick Launch Bar, you can enable it by following these steps.

1. Right-click on the Taskbar.

2. Mouseover Toolbars and select New toolbar.

3. In the Folder textbox, input the following:
%SystemDrive%\Users\%username%\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Quick Launch

Click on the Select Folder button.

The Quick Launch Bar will appear. Unlock the Taskbar by right-clicking on the taskbar and unchecking Lock Taskbar. Move the Quick Launch Bar to the desired location on the taskbar and then relock the taskbar.
