Turning on the QuickLaunch Bar
Q: On my old Windows 98 computer, I had a bar of buttons across the bottom of my screen that let me click on programs, like Word or Excel, to run them without having to find the shortcuts on my desktop, or dig around in my Start Menu. Now that I have a new computer with Windows XP, I don't seem to have that bar. Does XP have something like this? >Maria, Boston NY
A: Yes, Maria. It's called the QuickLaunch bar. It works the same in XP as it did in Windows 98 and 2000, but you have to turn it on. Just right-click anywhere on your TaskBar (that big bar at the bottom of your screen - but not on an existing button) and then click on Toolbars > QuickLaunch. You will now see the QuickLaunch bar you're familiar with. Normally it will just start out with icons for Internet Explorer, Outlook (or Outlook Express), and the Show Desktop icon, but you can now create shortcuts (buttons) for any applications you like just by dragging them there. We teach you all about the QuickLaunch bar and how to use it in our Microsoft Windows 121 course, which is available on our Web site.
