Quick Launch - Icons Move After Usage?


V

My Quick Launch (Locked) seems to have a mind of its own today! I put
everything back and rebooted but it still happens. Every once in a
while the last Application (i.e., FireFox 3, etc.) will slide itself
all the way over to the right (it was all the way over to the left).
The Taskbar is "locked" so it just doesn't make any sense. I opened
Outlook Express (on Quick Launch) and it (not right away) moved all
the way over to the right. It doesn't do it immediately, but I will
notice (after some usage) that it has shifted. Any suggestions?

Maybe Taskbar Repair Tool Plus!

Open the Registry Editor (Start>Run>regedit), and carefully navigate to and select
this key in the left pane of the window:
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\Explorer

In the right-hand pane, is there a value named "NoSaveSettings"?
If so, is it a DWORD or Hex, and is it set to 0 or to 1?

Noppa! There is no value named "NoSaveSettings"

OK, then try adding it to the Registry and see if it has an effect.

Try it with the Hex value first. You can make a Registry file by copy/pasting the
info between the dotted lines into Notepad (with Wordwrap OFF), and save it as
"nosavesettings.reg" (including the quotation marks). Then merge the .reg file by
right-clicking it and clicking Merge.

------------------------------------------------
REGEDIT4

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\Explorer]

"NoSaveSettings"=hex:00,00,00,00

;;make sure there are these blank lines at the end of any .reg file you make
-----------------------------------------------

Set it to 0 as shown above, reboot, adjust your QL icons, see if they hold after
another reboot.
If not, set it to 1, reboot, try again, then if needed set it back to 0 and test
again.

If still no joy, delete the hex value and try the DWORD value instead, and repeat
the testing with each setting, to see if any work for you:

"NoSaveSettings"=dword:00000000
or
"NoSaveSettings"=dword:00000001

Other than that, I have no ideas.
