Extend your quick launch capacity

Do you use your quick launch bar for shortcuts? Has it gotten too big for its britches? Are there shortcuts you would like to add but you've simply run out of room for them all? Fear not -- give this tip a try.

Within the Quick Launch folder (C:Documents and SettingsApplication DataMicrosoftInternet ExplorerQuick Launch)You can create folders with shortcuts in them -- i.e. 'Application Folder', 'Internet Shortcuts', 'Favorite Folders' etc.

If you then shorten your Quick Launch bar, (grab the vertical bar at the far right of your quick launch bar which will be there if you run multiple toolbars on your taskbar,) you will see a small double arrow (>>) at the far right of your quick launch group.

If you click on this arrow, your folder group will pop up with named folders which will list the entire contents and allow you to populate the quick launch bar with a multitude of shortcuts.
