Feature request: auto enable quick launch bar

  • Anonymous - 2012-08-17

    Hello, I enable the old quick launch bar on the Windows 7 taskbar. The
    advantage is that it occupies little space and I find it very useful.
    In order to activate it, I followed the MS procedure described here:

    Would it be possible to AUTOMATE all the operations described in that page so
    one has only to check an option in Classic Shell?
    Thank you!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    @accounts - no, Classic Shell is not a configuration utility and will never do
    what you are asking. Is it really that hard to do a few mouse clicks?

    @xpclient - this API is for showing bands that already exist. The quicklaunch
    doesn't exist by default. And there is more to quicklaunch than just showing
    it - you have to hide the text and move it to the left side. There's no API
    for that.

    AFAIK Classic Shell description states "Classic Shell adds some missing
    features to Windows 7 and Vista". Quick launch is for me a missing useful
    feature from Windows. It would be great to integrate the Quick launch to the
    classic shell installation menu. It's no hard to do the clicks, its the
    plusvalue of getting all in one pack.
    Thinking that the 'up level button' in the Windows Explorer was almost the
    only reason I've installed Classic Shell, I see no problem in letting the
    people choose the features they want.

    @batsu-maru, Quick Launch is still intact in Windows 7, you just need to
    create a toolbar from its folder. Up button was entirely removed so it was
    ADDED by Classic Shell.
