Does anyone know how/if it is possible to create folders on the Quick Launch bar, which when selected will display their contents in a cascaded menu, similar to the way that Start Menu folders work? I've searched high and low on the web for this, but nary a word (am I the only person to want to do this?)

If you place an actual Folder in the Quick Launch Folder, it will cascade. If you place a shortcut to a folder, it will not.


If you right click on an empty space on the taskbar (not the Quick Launch Toolbar ) and on ths menu go to Toolbars>New Toolbar. you can then browse to any folder and create a toolbar for that folder.

Tried it, but no dice; behavior is the same (opens in a full window) either way. I know that extra taskbars can be made, but that isn't what I want.... hmmn, can you nest taskbars? Might have to try that.... ;)

Thanks for responding.

It should become a cascading folder. Go to the QL toolbar and hold the mouse over the grab bar on the Start Button side to bring up the double arrow. Right click and choose Open Folder.

This is the Quick Launch Folder which builds the QL Toolbar.

Add any folder you like here.
