    Hi,

    I would like to copy the items in my Taskbar (i.e., Quick Launch) to an external hard drive. How do I do this?
    I tried to find a taskbar folder on my C: Drive, but I had no success. Thank you for any help you can give me.

    Welcome to the Lounge!

    The contents of your QuickLaunch folder can be found typically at:
    C:\Documents and Settings\username\Application Data\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Quick Launch

    However, it depends what you are trying to achieve as the settings for the Taskbar, such as what is displayed on it, will be stored in the registry. Are you trying to create a backup?

    I'll add my welcome and also interject that the items in your QuickLaunch taskbar are nothing more than shortcuts and, as such, can be easily recreated anywhere with a simple right-click, copy and then paste where you want it.

    Thank you Leif and DocWatson for your respective responses. I wanted to copy the taskbar for backup and future reference. DocWatson's copy and paste worked fine. I also tried Leif's path, i.e., C:\Documents and Settings\user name\.....but got no further than user name. There was no Application Data, etc. There was System, but when I clicked this I got an empty page. I don't understand why I cannot get Application Data, etc.
    I would greatly appreciate any suggestions.

    Again, thank you very much for your help.

    The Application Data folder is hidden by default. To make it visible:
    - Start Windows Explorer.
    - Select Tools | Folder Options...
    - Activate the View tab.
    - Tick the check box for the item "Show hidden files and folders".
    - Click OK.

    Moon,
    Far be it from me to tell another how to express themselves, but the size of the font you are using is rather like shouting. I might suggest that you use the default font to make your posts and hope that you will take this "correction" in the spirit it is intended, helpful, and do not take offense , as none is intended.

    Thanks for your heads up, Doc. I take no offence. I will start using the default font.
