    Items gone from task bar

    I have an application and a custom folder that were in my task bar that now disappear every time I restart the computer. I tried putting them back and locking the task bar but the next time I start the computer they are gone. If I right click the task bar and select toolbar the program is there but my folder is gone. Any suggestions on how I can get them to stay?

    As I said this just started happening. I had my previous computer set up this way and the items stayed. This computer is about 9 months old and up until this week things have been staying in the task bar. The trick with the folder and my favorite programs is something I got from Woody several years ago.

    Thanks.

    You can't select toolbar there, only one of several toolbars. So, which one?

    If I right click on the Task Bar and select the Toolbars item the Program the who's icon is gone is there. I can also select New Toolbar and replace the link to the folder with my most used shortcuts. After doing this all is fine until I turn the computer off. When next booted the items are gone from the task bar. What removes them? Up until a week or so ago they were always available.

    I don't think it's possible for a program shortcut icon to be listed under toolbars, because only folders are recognized as toolbars.

    If you create a special folder somewhere and fill it with your required shortcuts, that folder should remain once added as a toolbar.
