Bringing back the Windows XP style Quicklaunch Bar

Wish Windows 7 had the Quick Launch bar that was there in Windows XP?

Windows 7′s new taskbar functions as a task switcher and a program launcher. Because of the design, Mircosoft removed the old Quick Launch bar, (the area on the left side of the taskbar that contained shortcuts for programs that were used frequently).
However, you can add it back. Here’s how to do it:

Step 1. Right-click the taskbar and choose Toolbars and select New Toolbar.

2 . You’ll be asked to select a folder for the new toolbar. In the Folder text box at the bottom of the dialog box, enter the following text:

%userprofile%\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Quick Launch

After you do that, click Select Folder. A link for the Quick Launch bar will be added to the taskbar. It will be on the right of the taskbar, just to the left of the Notification area.

The Quick Launch bar will show up on the right just like in Windows XP.
