How to Add Programs to Quick Launch in Windows 7

Wednesday, July 6th, 2011 by | Filed Under: Desktop Enhancement, Shortcuts & Keyboard Tricks

Michelle from NH asks:

How do I add programs to the Quick Launch Toolbar in Windows 7?

Thanks for the great question Michelle. The Quick Launch toolbar is very helpful in accessing the programs you use the most. Fortunately, it is very easy to add programs to the Quick Launch toolbar.

Click the icon of the program that you want to add to the Quick Launch toolbar and drag it to the Quick Launch toolbar. See how easy it is!

You can find programs to add to the Quick Launch on the Start menu or on your desktop.

Click the Start button and then click All Programs.

Drag any program from the start menu to the Quick Launch tool bar and release your mouse button. The icon will then be displayed on the toolbar.

Drag any program icon on your desktop to the Quick Launch toolbar in the same way.

Remove Program from Quick Launch Toolbar

If you want to remove a program from the Quick Launch toolbar, simply right-click the program icon and select Delete.

We hope this tip has helped you add programs to your Quick Launch toolbar.
