    Hi All

    I am running XP Pro but have seen a nice feature on a Mac laptop recently where there was a sort of quicklinks bar, but it ran down the side of the main display.

    Is there such a feature or sharware application available for XP thatwill allow me to set up my quicklinks bar in a similar manner...? (apart from purchasing a mac heheeh)

    Right click on the taskbar, go to "Toolbars", then click on Quick Launch. This will add an area to your taskbar that will allow you to keep shortcuts.

    Hi wausau99

    Yup, I am aware of and already have the windows Quick Launch bar enabled. It is in my windows start bar. What I am actually looking for is a way to have something like that running down the side of my widescreen laptop such as they have on a Mac OS.
