What does help say about it? Don't bother answering, I know what it =
says.

One thing that may not be in help is to find QL, unlock the taskbar and =
right click QL's resize bar (on the left of it) and choose Open Folder.

Still it is a stupid thing to do for anyone with normal motor control. =
You can just drag your files to QL.=20

And you would have to hold down Ctrl + Alt while sending to QL else =
you'll move the file there rather than create a shortcut. Even dragging =
you'll need to either use Ctrl + Alt or drag with right mouse button and =
Choose Create Shortcut on the DragDrop menu.

I like the Quick Launch toolbar for programs I use often;
but many times a new program installation will not automatically put a
short-cut there for you.

You can create a new short-cut on your Desktop for a program and then
click-drag it to Quick Launch;
but it is much handier if you have Quick Launch in the right-click
"Send To " sub-menu.
Here's how to make a short-cut for Quick Launch in "Send To".

1. Start Windows Explorer and navigate to...
C:\Documents and Settings\your User Name\SendTo
(your User Name is the user account that you use to log into Windows.)

2. Right-click a blank area inside the SendTo folder and then click New
Shortcut


3. A Create Shortcut window will open.
In the white space for Type the location of the item: type in...
"C:\Documents and Settings\your User Name\Application
Data\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Quick Launch"
and click Next then click Finish and close Windows Explorer.

Now when you want to add one of your favorite programs to the Quick
Launch toolbar;
just find it in the Start... Programs menu, Right-click on it, click
Send To and shoot it straight to Quick Launch.

There's certainly nothing wrong with doing this, but I don't agree that it's
"much handier." Personally I prefer dragging and dropping. It's not only
just as easy, but when you drag and drop, you get to drop it into the
position in the Quick Launch Bar where you want it.
