Quick Launch In Windows Is SOOOO Slow !
Are you sure you're not experiencing some kind of overheating problem? You can set it to pretty much whatever you like. I can also use Windows Key + D to quickly toggle to the Desktop and back.

Yes, my password is: Forgot your password? That's exactly the problem it was designed to solve - have programs be in a fixed place whether they're running or not.

Right click on your taskbar and select Toolbars - New Toolbar and point to the folder you just created. Click OK when you're done. The latter can be caused by some "performance tweaking" utilities that create the "Max Cached Icons" value in the registry using the wrong data type, usually either REG_DWORD or REG_BINARY instead
Once the icons are visible, the programmes they link to open immediately. or maybe I'm alone? I must say that I have never seen the advice before about not putting subfolders in Quick Launch - if Microsoft itself says so, then it must be true. The correct icon is displayed in the properties sheet but are not displayed correctly on the menu and taskbar.

Anyways, adding quicklaunch folder to index has not helped much.
The most irritating part is the entire taskbar/gui is unresponsive until it draws the icons! In the Registry Editor, use the left sidebar to navigate to the following key: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer Next, you're going to create a new value inside that folder. Good Luck with it. I do apologise..# Click to expand...
Below is shown how one of the recent used applications (the internet search application Copernic Agent Basic) will be pinned to the start menu. weblink BM00, Jan 25, 2010 BM00, Jan 25, 2010 #1 Jan 25, 2010 #2 Arainach 2[H]4U Messages: 2,715 Joined: Feb 25, 2006 Are they all from your local system, or are some I'll still check the iconcache, but it seems odd that some Quick Launch subfolders open and show the lnk files immediately, whereas others cause the laptop to hang (mpore or less).

I can't figure out why this happened. And I also have a second work machine which gets the same updates but does not have this lag, so I didn't think a particular update was to blame. Open the Registry Editor by hitting Start and typing “regedit.” Press Enter to open Registry Editor and give it permission to make changes to your PC. I think personal preference is a great reason to do something.

I missed the quick launch from WinXP so I enabled it but have a very annoying issue; it takes 8 seconds for the programs to populate the quick launch bar. his comment is here Thanks, Martin martinlest, Apr 3, 2011 #1 Sponsor Macboatmaster Trusted Advisor Joined: Jan 14, 2010 Messages: 17,426 How many and what please do you have in quick launch.
They never need most of it.Got Feedback? I want all my icons to stay on the left side regardless of if they are open or not and that doesn't happen with the new Pin to task bar. Right click on your taskbar and select Toolbars - New Toolbar and point to the folder you just created. But, running another kind of app in startup might.
When you’ve applied the hack you want, restart your computer (or log off and back on). If that doesn't get you sorted out, take a look at these steps for increasing the icon cache size. Then Lock the Taskbar. No spamming, advertising.

Most of the applications you won't even use, and some are important to show (firewall, virus scan, internet connection) or to have fast access to.
