    Have you ever hit an icon in your quicklaunch menu and accidently drug it off onto your desktop? I've done it numerous times and it always generates a negative emotional response because I have to drag it back on and then delete the one that stays on the desktop. :mad:

    I just navigated to:
    C:\Documents and Settings\Lonman\Application Data\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Quick Launch
    and made all the shortcuts read only. Now when I attempt to drag one off a box pops up asking me if I want move the read-only file. Not only NO, but h*** no. Of course, I'd have to perform a separate hack to actually have a 'h*** no' button, but I'll save that for another time.

    Cheers.

    errr ummm... if you were to ever do something, anything really, including what Lonman mentioned. If you ever make a mistake and immediately realize that had all you need to do is hit ctrl + z and that does an undo. It works on almost everything.

    I did say it work on almost everything. Plus that problem you mentioned most likely lies between keyboard and chair. Not something the OS can fix. [​IMG]

    Wouldn't it be easier just to lock your task bar?

    Even with the taskbar locked you can still drag icons into and out of the quick launch bar.

    That's because it's a marrage system file. Hitting control + Z just causes it to kill all yer resources and hogs all yer memory.

    Then the only way to clear everything up is to reformat and then reinstall marrage... of course it's a totally new marrage.:rolleyes: :p

    Good ta hear from ya Lonman.:)
