Quick launch taskbar

  greybeard 17:52 14 Dec 2004

Win98 with the desktop set in classic style.

Trying to set up shortcuts on the desktop of a friends system, I cannot get the quick launch taskbar to work.
It doesn't allow me to drag a short cut from the desktop onto the taskbar.
Right clicking on the taskbar doesn't give a "Toolbar" option.
Also, right clicking on desktop icons does not give any menu. Right clicking on programmes in the start menu does.
Did the quick launch only appear with 98se ?
Help please.

It sya here click here that you have to have active desktop enabled to get the quick Launch toolbar.

Thanks, that is probably the answer. I'll tick after I've checked it out.

Hi Woodchip, according to the reference I linked to above, if you install Internet Explorer 4.0 or above onto Windows 95 or 98, you also get the Quick launch taskbar option.
