What do you have on your Quick Launch bar? Does anyone else use it like I do? I have it docked to the top of my screen and it has everything I use a lot on it... Can't do without it.
From left to right: Desktop, Window Switch, RDP, Outlook, Evernote, Notepad, Notepad++, Paint.Net, FireFox, IE8, Chrome, Safari, Visual Studio, SQL Server Manager, IIS Manager, Web Service Studio, Command, QC Explorer (a QA thing), Environment reset batch file, Environment config batch app, Hosts file editor, My Computer and various shortcuts to directories for project source drops locally and on the network. There are also a few things hidden in the "drop downs" such as some other less frequently used tools and some saved RDP profiles. - Lindsay
You need Windows 7 like no tomorrow. The new 'dock-like' start bar kicks ass. I used to do what you do, and now I just leave it all in the start bar. - Sparky, lurking
I JUST got this Vista box at work... I imagine it would be another couple years till I could get Win7. - Lindsay
That's what I do now - and as Sparky said, I am really chomping at the bit to get 7 on my work machine for the psuedo-dock. - Jennifer Dittrich
Do you have to type stuff in to find things or can you set up icons/shortcuts? - Lindsay
yep win7 got rid of the need for quick launch for me. Some of the stuff you have on there is easily replaced with keyboard shortcuts, and shortcuts to directories you can pin to the explorer icon in the taskbar. - Ben Reierson
Harass your admins. While the general availability date hasn't hit the Win7 media is already available in the VL channel. - Sparky, lurking
I kind of do, but mine is set up in rows on the right side of my screen, turns from rows into a column when I open iTunes. - NOT THE CRICKET
I don't even keep things in that. Too much clutter. I just keep everything in the Start menu. - Anika
I hate typing and remembering keyboard shortcuts... I like to point and click... more of a visual person, I guess. - Lindsay
Lindsay - it's like the dock. All the icons are there, and a box shows up around them if they are running. Launching and switching to an app has been collapsed into a single action. - Sparky, lurking
It's completely point and click, with extra functionality for hover and click - Sparky, lurking
I don't type anything ever. It's all icons or just clicking into menus. - Anika
In vista, the window key is your friend, it takes you straight to search so you can find files quickly. - NOT THE CRICKET
@Jimminy, I just hate typing for something when I can just click it. :) I have to hit the Windows key (or click the Start button) and then type and then select from a list... bleh... - Lindsay
Windows 7 gives you a lot of flexibility - us keyboarders can Win-type and you visual people can launch apps in a single click without needing both a task bar and a quick launch bar. - Sparky, lurking
Well good to know... I will probably be upgrading my Vista box at home to Win7 this weekend. - Lindsay
Demand it for your work PC too - it's way faster than Vista. I hated Vista, but am head over heels in love with Win7. - Sparky, lurking
this is what my dock is for ;) - mjc
How do you type to find your things? I'm curious about this. I've been using computers forever and after Windows 3.1, I don't think I've ever typed anything (or used my keyboard) to access applications/software on my machine. The only time I've ever typed, is to search for files I couldn't find in the correct folders. I guess what I'm asking is *how* do you type to get to applications?... more... - Anika
Anika, in Vista if you hit the Windows Key, it opens the start menu with the focus inside the search box, if I want to open up calculator really quick I just hit Windows Key -> calc -> Enter, though it's not always that simple. I also use this in tandem with the quick launch though. - NOT THE CRICKET
Ah...Thanks. I don't use Vista. So, I was really, confused here. I sat here trying to figure out how to do it! - Anika
Visual Studio, IE8, Explorer, WMP, Firefox, Snip Tool, Chrome, Remote Desktop. - Roberto Bonini
I don't have anything on my Quick Launch bar, I run Ubuntu Linux. :-P - furlan
I don't have 'QuickLaunch', I run Linux. I DO have a bunch of apps there, similar to what you run... - furlan
