    Cannot totally collapse quick launch bar


    Hello,
    This is admittedly a pretty low priority thing, but has been annoying me none the less.
    I'm a big fan of the quick launch bar, and have successfully added it to my Windows 10
    (Vers 1607) task bar. In Windows 7, I could collapse the quick launch bar fully, so that all
    that showed was the double arrow. It seems that Windows 10 insists on one item, and a
    space then the double arrow. I just want the double arrow.
    Certainly not an earth shattering problem *Biggrin - It'd be nice if this could be tweaked.

  2. Opera Mobile as a default browser in 5800 XM

    Unfortunately the quick launch bar will always launch the Nokia browser. That behaviour cannot be changed.

    Win10Pro: Quick Launch toolbar is in the wrong place. Any way to move it to the left end of the toolbar?

    There's a missing step in your method, and there's important
    visible feedback missing
    from the process.

    The separator line on the far left can be moved, even though there's no visible feedback that it's actually moving.

    To do what I want, I first moved the separator between the Task Bar and the Quick Launch tool bar as far to the left as it will go, squeezing the Task Bar into a small space on the left.

    The missing step is to then grab the separator that's to the left of the squashed Task Bar and drag it to the right of the Quick Launch tool bar.

    As soon as the image of the separator passes to the right of the Task Bar, the Task Bar will expand to normal size, and to the right of the Quick Launch bar.

    The Task Bar, Quick Launch and notification area are now in their proper places and should no longer interfere with one another.

    Either, you must leave the Toolbar Title, or, you can create an invisible shortcut, (eg.: explorer.exe), named appropriately to be first in alphanumeric order and assign it a blank ico/icon file.
