    Lol ….. someone needs to get out more and stop being such a well-educated geek! Nice job dude! I heard there was a way of doing this but I didn’t follow up on it, seeing as I’m kinda happy with just having the taskbar as it is, but I’ve saved this page just in case I change my mind!

    Did you realize there is a ‘Quick Launch’ folder that is already present in ‘C:\Users\(username)\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Quick Launch’?

    No need really to recreate as ‘QuickStart’, but good info still.
