How to Arrange Shortcuts into Groups on the Windows 7 Quick Launch Bar

00_lead_image_free_launch_bar

The Quick Launch Bar is a handy tool for quickly and easily launching applications. However, if you've put a lot of shortcuts on the Quick Launch Bar, it can get quite cluttered and you cannot rearrange the shortcuts or sort them into groups.

By default, the Quick Launch Bar is hidden in Windows 7. However, you can easily add the Quick Launch Bar to the Taskbar. We've previously written about a free tool that creates a launcher in the Windows system tray that is similar to the Quick Launch Bar.

There is also a free tool, called Free Launch Bar, that allows you to group shortcuts on the Quick Launch Bar and add titles, separators, and submenus. It is fully compatible with the Windows Quick Launch Bar because it is uses the same folder for the shortcuts.

To install Free Launch Bar, extract the .zip file you downloaded (see the link at the end of this article). Run the appropriate executable file, depending on whether you are running a 32-bit or a 64-bit version of Windows.
