Quicklaunch toolbar query

  FatboySlim71 09:10 22 Jun 2007

I have Windows XP Pro. I have the vast amount of my desktop icons on my quicklaunch toolbar as my desktop was getting cluttered with icons. I would like to be able to catagories some of my quicklaunch icons into other groups, i.e. have seperate quicklaunch toolbars for example for my music programs and so on, I was wondering if this is possible and if so how can I do this. Any help's much appreciated.

I don't know about separate quick launch toolbars, but you could have quick launch items point to folders that contain groups of program short cuts. Then clicking on such a quick launch item would open the relevant folder. I already use this to access folders such as one containing shortcuts to my AV and Anti-spyware programs and another one to System Tools.

You can also create new folders containing the shortcuts for each group that you want, then right-click the Taskbar and choose Toolbars, New Toolbar. Browse to one of your folders and click to highlight it then click OK to put it on the taskbar. It doesn't put it in the QuickLaunch area but it's the next best thing.
