I've got a few programs, including CCleaner and Malwarebytes which no longer run when I click on their quick launch icons. They will run if I go to programs, but nothing happens (the normal window opens for a split second then immediately closes) when I try to run them from the quicklaunch bar.
Thanks guys. I have managed to solve this problem by deleting and then recreating the links.
@Sea Urchin (love the name!)I have got no further regarding the programs I tried to add to the quick launch bar yesterday. It would seem that there is a kind of block with these particular programs, because I can add others. I see a red circle with a diagonal red line through it when I position their icons over the quick launch bar. So I've given up on these.
The behaviour you are describing usually indicates that you are trying to drop the link on to the general task bar area and not the quick launch bar. Try unlocking the quick launch bar and dragging it to a larger size - then try dropping Revo on to it. I have Revo on mine so it does work.
One other thing you could try. Drag the icon from the desktop to the quick launch bar using the right mouse button - the red circle should change to a vertical bar when over the quick launch area. Release the button, and from the menu select Copy Here or Create Shortcut Here.
