I have a lot of tasks on my Quick Launch in Windows XP and they are do not fit one line and it creates two buttons icon for switch the pages force and back. But almost every time if I click some icon on second page it is not switching to this window but switch on first page and vise-verse on first page. I have another problem with my mouse (and it could be relate to first one) sometime I click for Copy and do Paste but Copy was not done.

To re-create the Show Desktop icon on the Quick Launch toolbar, follow these steps....
1. Use any text editor (such as Notepad) to create a file with the following lines: [Shell] Command=2 IconFile=explorer.exe,3 [Taskbar] Command=ToggleDesktop 2. Save the new file as a file named Show Desktop.scf in the WindowsSystem or WinntSystem32 folder. Note that Notepad may automatically append a .txt extension to the file name. Remove this extension if Notepad adds it. These steps do not work if the file is named Show Desktop.scf.txt. 3. Quit Notepad. 4. Using Windows Explorer or My Computer, right-click the Show Desktop .scf file, and then click Create Shortcut. 5. Copy the new shortcut to the appropriate folder. In Microsoft Windows 95 or Windows 98, copy the shortcut to this folder: WindowsApplication DataMicrosoftInternet ExplorerQuick Launch In Microsoft Windows NT or Microsoft Windows 2000, copy the shortcut to this folder: WinNTSystem32 In Microsoft Windows XP, copy the shortcut to the following folder: WINDOWSSystem32ConfigSystemprofileApplication DataMicrosoftInternet ExplorerQuick Launch 6. Rename the shortcut to Desktop. The Show Desktop icon automatically appears on the Quick Launch toolbar. --------------------------- Reference: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/190355/EN-US/
Here is what you need to do to enable quick launch in Windows 7:
Step1: Right click on Taskbar at the bottom -> select "Toolbars" -> click on "New toolbar..."
Step2: In the "folder" line in new window that opened up type in te text below: "%userprofile%AppDataRoamingMicrosoftInternet ExplorerQuick Launch" (without quotes)
Step3: After typing in the text above click "Select Folder".
Step4: Now you should have "quick launch" at the bottom right and you can now right click the dotted line next to "quick launch" and drag it to your desired position. I personally like it next to "Start" button just like the old days :-)
This model doesn't officially have Windows 8 support. That would be why the quick launch doesn't work. Also quick launch I believe for HP is only supported for Win 8 Pro and Enterprise versions, not the consumer version.
Hello, I suggest you uninstall Lenovo Quick Launch, reboot your PC and then reinstall it. I have included a link to Lenovo Canada where you can download the Lenovo Quick Launch software. Please also install any available updates for Windows - start-all programs-windows update. http://support.lenovo.com/en_CA/downloads/detail.page?DocID=DS032411 Hope this helps!
Get back the Quick Launch bar
Windows 7's new taskbar functions as a program launcher as well as
task switcher. As a result, the old Quick Launch bar, the area on the
left side of the taskbar that contained shortcuts for frequently used
programs, has been banished. However, if you really miss the little
applet, you can add it back. Here's how to do it:
1. Right-click the taskbar and choose Toolbars --> New Toolbar.
2 . You'll be asked to select a folder for where the new toolbar
should live. In the Folder text box at the bottom of the dialog box,
enter this 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.
It's not particularly useful docked all the way to the right with no
application icons showing, so we're going to have to do a bit of work
on it to make it useful. Right-click the taskbar and, in the pop-up
menu, remove the check next to "Lock the taskbar." Now right-click
Quick Launch and remove the checks next to Show Text and Show Title.
Once you've done that, drag the vertical triple dotted line next to
the Quick Launch bar to the left until you expose its icons. To prevent
further changes, right-click the taskbar and check Lock the taskbar.
You can now use the Quick Launch bar as you could in Windows XP and
Vista, including adding icons to it and deleting them.
Click on "Programs" and find the program for which you want to create an icon
Move your mouse pointer to the program you want to use
Depress and hold down the right mouse button while you drag the icon to the Quick Launch toolbar section of the Task Bar
When you release the right mouse button, a short menu will appear
Choose "Create Shortcut(s) Here." An icon will be created in the Quick Launch toolbar on the Taskbar
Deleting Icons from the Task Bar
Move the mouse pointer to the icon you want to delete
Right-click on the icon
Choose "Delete" from the short menu that appears. The icon has been deleted, but the program is still available to you on your hard disk
NOTE: If you have carefully followed the steps above to add the icon to your Quick Launch toolbar, deleting it will NOT delete the program from your computer, it will simply remove the icon from your toolbar. The program will still be available to you.
Also you can "Drag" the program, to the bar, and "Drop" it on it.
Check out a freeware application called StartupCPL at http://www.mlin.net/StartupCPL.shtml. This places a Startup icon in your Control Panel which, when opened, lists all applications on your PC with a check box for each one. Simply put a check mark in each application you want to open minimized on startup. By the way, it states it is for Windows ME and 2000, but I have had it on XP for quite a while and it works fine.
