    Quick Start Toolbar size - Order of Icons

    Hi all. I would like to know how to fix the size of the quick start toolbar,
    as I have to enlarge it every time I start windows. I would like it to have a
    fixed size if possible. Also, icons are organised by alphabetical order and I
    would like to change that, but every time I start up windows, they go back to
    alphabetical order. Please advise. Thanks.

    The easiest way I've found of making your quicklaunch settings "really
    permanent" is by using Free Launch Bar: http://www.freelaunchbar.com/. It
    was made for XP, but works fine here with Vista too.

    The toolbar layout settings are unusual in that they are read at login, held
    & modified in memory throughout a session, & only written at logoff.

    So the first thing to try is logging on, configuring Quick Launch, then
    logging off & back on. If they're not saved, check your event logs to see
    if any errors are being generated during logoff.

    Thanks Keith. I am not fluent in admin tools, and can not understand all the
    messages in the event viewer... I will keep on trying. Thanks again.
