    brainurism again. :confused:
    I've gone to properties and set my icon shortcuts to appear in my toolbar, but they won't appear there unless I manually set them up each time I log on. Any suggestions..

    If you're talking about icons in the notification area (bottom right corner of the screen) then uncheck the "hide inactive icon" in the taskbar properties, all icons will be displayed.

    If you mean the shortcuts like in the QuickLaunch bar, be sure that your shurtcut folder is accessible from your account or try to create another similar toolbar via rightclick on taskbar, Toolbars, New Toolbar...

    hope this will help!

    Thanks for the feedback. I believe I did uncheck the hide inactive icon, and it still didn't show in the task bar?
