  1. Customise size of Quick Launch icons


    I have a Quick Launch bar on the left-hand side of my taskbar. If I select 'Small icons', the icons are incredibly small, and it is difficult to hit a specific one quickly.

    If I select 'Large icons' then they are incredibly large, to the point that they increase the height of my taskbar, leading there to be empty space underneath my taskbar items; making my taskbar more difficult to use, as my cursor can now go *past* the taskbar items while moving down to click one.

    Is it possible to customise the size of the Quick Launch icons to make them the same size as the default taskbar items, or alternatively (less preferred), increase the height of the taskbar items to conpensate for the additional space?

    :)

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

    Just got a new PC win Win10Pro installed, moving from Win7Pro.

    I added the "Quick Launch" toolbar and believe that it's in the wrong place for it to behave correctly with the notification icons. Is there any way to move it?

    The notification icons are on the far right and grow to the left. The Quick Launch icons appear to the left of the notification icons and grow to the right if additional items are added.

    As a result, as the notification icons are turned on as needed, the Quick Launch toolbar can be forced to hide the right-most icons due to lack of space, and then show ">>" to allow access to the now hidden icons. This makes the "Quick" part of "Quick Launch"
    meaningless.

    On Win7, the Quick Launch icons were on the left, in their own reserved space which was not disturbed by other activity on the toolbar.

    Why do my quick launch icons flash when I click on the Chrome quick launch icon? Win 10

    Before I start the Troubleshooting, I just wanted to tell you that the Google quick launch icon is the only quick launch icon that causes the other icons to flash. As far as desktop icons go, the Google Chrome desktop icon is the only one that makes that
    quick launch icons flash. Sometimes both Google Chrome icons will cause some, or all, of my desktop icons to flash.

    I'll try the Troubleshooting method as soon as I get the chance.

    Thanks.

    Customise size of Quick Launch icons

    Hi @MisterCerberus , welcome to tenforums! *Smile

    I don't think it's possible to do what you wish. Why not just pin them the regular way?

  5. If I pin Firefox, and Firefox is open, I cannot use the pin to open a second instance of Firefox; as clicking on it will just minimise the first instance of Firefox. A Quick Launch bar does what pinning does except better.

    'Wheel Click' the pinned program will open a second/third/forth..... instance.
