  2. Is there a quick key to open a folder on my desktop once selected ?

    If you drag it to the Quick Launch area of the Taskbar it will open with a single click.

    Add or Remove Quick Launch toolbar in Windows 10

    Hey Edwin,

    I haven't found a way to do so yet. *Sad

    Vista had it there as a toolbar option by default, but not since Windows 7.

    K, thanks.
    I would imagine you'd have to create a CLSID and register it as a name space, or something to that effect.
    I'll just settle for creating shortcuts to my desired locations and place them in the Links folder instead.

    after lock
    After I create my new toolbars and drag then to the edges they look great, but as soon as I lock the taskbar the sliced icons appear. Anyone know why this happens?
    Sorry if I put this in the wrong place, Thank you

    Hello Hemimax, *Smile

    It's caused by the taskbar being 3 levels high instead of the default 1 level.

    Sorry Brink,
    It still does that slice thing even at only one level. I restarted explorer but it had no effect.
    However, if I leave the toolbar locked, unselect the new toolbars and recreate them, the slices disappear.
    I think they will randomly reappear after some time though. Thank you for looking into this, I appreciate your knowledge on the subject.

    It's a glitch since Vista or Windows 7. As long as you don't unlock/lock your taskbar after creating the toolbar it won't show part of the contents. *Sad

    I did discover later that if I removed and then recreated the toolbar the glitch would go away.

    Hi

    I've added Quick Launch and Desktop toolbars to my taskbar but Win 10 'forgets' this very often and after restart they are not there. Can anyone help me?

    Thanks.

    Hello bolshed, and welcome to Ten Forums. *Smile

    Do you have Windows set to automatically sign you in at startup? This was an issue in Windows 7 that Microsoft released a hotfix for, but I would have thought it should be fixed in Windows 10.

    As a test, save your theme after adding Quick Launch to see if that may help it stick.

    If that doesn't help, then see if using the tutorial below to reset and clear taskbar toolbars may help. You'll have to add all your toolbars back again afterwards though.

    When I click on the icon in the Quick Launch, Switch between windows, nothing happens? What is wrong?

    Hello Akd, and welcome to Ten Forums. *Smile

    The "Switch between windows" shortcut in Quick Launch no longer works in Windows 10.

    If you like, here are some alternatives below for switching between open apps.
