Quick Launch icons don't show


O

Old enough

After (with help of posters here) I finally have my desk top icons
doing what they should do, there is an other (not earth-shocking)
problem:

After boot-up, NO Quick Launch icons show on the taskbar.
("Lock the taskbar" is checked).
When I right-click on the taskbar, then click on "Tool bars", then
"Quick Launch", the icons show in alphabetical order.
Whether or not I re-arrange them in groups of my liking, on the next
boot-up they don't show.

Any help or suggestions here, folks?

Thanks!

Hi,
Right click the taskbar and put your Muse/Pointer on toolbars >> and select
Quick Launch or click on it.

Or:
Right click the Start Button and select properties, on the Taskbar and Start
Menu properties window click on Taskbar tab and make sure to check this
option:
[ ] Show Quick Launch

Click [OK] and then Hit F5 to refresh.
HTH.

I know that BlazeFind changed the following setting for one poster.

Verify this setting in the registry.

Start | Run | Type: regedit | Click OK |
Navigate to >>
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows NT\
CurrentVersion\Winlogon

Value Name: Userinit
Data Type: REG_SZ
Value Data: C:\Windows\System32\userinit.exe,

Do not forget to add the comma at the end.
Close the Registry Editor and reboot your computer.

Thenks for the come-back, Wesley!

I tried several things, and eventually threw up my hands in dispair.

Then I wiped the hard drive, re-loaded Windows XP, did the hundreds of
"critical" updates, and reloaded my programs.

Things now work like a charm!

Guess everyone should wipe the hard drive and start from scratch once
a year . . . . .

That is certainly one method. ;-)

Why not just buy a new machine every year? Like when the ashtray gets full,
so to speak. LOL
