    Want an easier way to edit your quicklaunch bar rather than right clicking on it all the time?

    Assumes: You have "show hidden and system files" Selected in folder options
                   You know your username

    Instructions: Open My Computer or explorer and navagate to:
     --> Documents and Settings
      --> <your username>
       --> Application Data
        --> Microsoft
         --> Internet Explorer
          --> Quick Launch

    (Note: replace x with your windows hdd letter and change <your username> to your username's directory).

    From here you can add or remove shortcuts easily :)

    If you have any problems, just reply to this post and i'll try to help you :)

    P.S: Shouts go to Daniel for showing me this in the first place :D

    Thats easier than simply dragging icons on or off the quick launch bar?

    hehe.. for me it is.. i've got 2 lines of icons and in total that's like, 50-60 icons.. so yea.. it's WAY easier for me ;)

    Then again, if you're normal and have like, 10 then it's a little bit of trouble hehe

    or just right click on the quicklaunch bar and select open folder

    Urm.. why not make your own toolbar, I have a tools & media bar as well as quicklaunch. Even Simpler, and no worries or corrupting quicklaunch :) <<--seems simple 2 me!

    this was posted on the main page a while back. i love it. vastly superior to quicklauch if you configure it right. the email notification is the best part.
