    Icons on task bar (Windows XP)

    I had my work laptop rebuilt last night. Now, the icons I had for IE, Outlook, etc that were on my task bar are gone. How do I recreate this? Thanks.. : )

    Try right-clicking an empty part of the task bar.
    Select Toolbars | Quick Launch.
    Do the icons reappear?
    If not, you will have to rebuild the Quick Launch icons by dragging applications to it. The Office programs can be found in C:Program FilesMicrosoft OfficeOffice (for Office 2000, for Office XP it would be ...Office10, and for Office 2003 it would be ...Office11). Internet Explorer can be found in C:Program FilesInternet Explorer.

    If you right click the task bar, it should give you a pop up menu. Rest your mouse on the entry Tool Bar and another pop menu will appear Select the one that says "Quick Launch". If the icons that you want don't appear, and you have them on your desktop, simply right click and drag the icon to the task bar, and let up. It will say, among other things, "create a shortcut here". Choose that option and the shortcut will be on the task bar. Hope I didn't miss a step in this procedure. Maybe there is an easier way to do it, but this is how I put short cut icons on my task bar. <img src=/S/cheers.gif border=0 alt=cheers width=30 height=16>

    Isn't it interesting what all turns up missing when we rebuild our computer's operating system? Glad your life "is good"!! Have a great rest of the week even! <img src=/S/grin.gif border=0 alt=grin width=15 height=15>
