Default Quick Launch

Please do not call me names or yell at me through cyberspace.

Me accidentally [yes, because I was not thinking] deleted all files and
folders and registry settings related to 'Quick Launch'.

I tried importing an old registry I had, but that did not work.

Any ideas?

TIA,
SGB

P.S. I can hear you calling me names and yelling. Not nice! LOL

Default Quick Launch

I tried importing an old registry I had, but that did not work.

As in "System Restore" or "scanreg /restore" and, how old? You just *may*
have a couple of more lives left.

However, if you've deleted files - and depending on exactly which files -
you've probably lost them for good. Unless - and really clutching - "Recycle
Bin"? or better yet, your back-up regime?? Oops!

In which case it's back to the drawing board and (if you can remember what
you had before) re-create them. (In the Toolbar sub menu's)

No name calling from me. There, but for the grace of god, go I - and
probably many others too. Good luck.

OMG! I am so...
'System Restore' does not reinstall it either.
When I right click to Toolbars Quick Launch it reads "Cannot create
toolbar." with a white X in a red circle. Then, I have no other choice , but
to click "OK"
Yikes!
Multi-tasking isn't al it cracked up to be. #$%& me!

Try manually recreating the Quick Launch toolbar.
C:\WINDOWS\Application Data\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Quick Launch

You'll have to populate it again.

As you have already found the C:\Windows\Application Data folder is one of a
number of locations excluded from System Restore monitoring. Other such
excluded folders include My Documents, Favourites, Cookies, TIF,
Windows\Temp, Windows\Applog and Windows\Downloaded Program Files.

Mike,

The folder is not there.
I did a search, but it does not come up with any results "Quick Launch"
Looked in regedit, but no find either.
It seems to be completely gone.
Do you have the info needed to add to the registry to manually recreate it
or something else; perhaps a zip file?

TIA!
SGB

I'm sorry but it appears you may have misread my message. You need to
CREATE the FOLDER
C:\WINDOWS\Application Data\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Quick Launch. You
do this in the same way as any other folder using Windows Explorer. I
intentionally made no mention of regedit.

Sorry Mike.
After I create the folder, then what do I add to the folder to recreate the
program?
I appreciate your help.

Mike,

The "Quick Launch" folder had to be created in
C:\WINDOWS\Profiles\***Name***\Application Data\Microsoft\Internet Explorer

Thanks for leading me in the right direction though.

All's good for now! eg

I didn't know that you had multiple users/profiles installed. A default
single user Win Me install normally uses the folder I mentioned - or at
least it does here, none of my Win Me systems ever having had a
C:\Windows\Profiles\ folder.

I'm pleased to read you've now fixed the problem and all without using
regedit!
