If you use the Windows Quick Launch bar or added it to Windows 7, there’s an easier way to add programs and other items to it than dragging them. Here’s how to add the Quick Launch option to the right-click context menu in Windows.
Add Quick Launch to Windows Context Menu
First use the keyboard shortcut WinKey + R to bring up the Run box and type: shell: SendTo and hit Enter or click OK.
Note: This works with Vista, Windows 7, and Windows 8
The SendTo folder will open in Explorer. Right click an empty area and select New > Shortcut.
Then copy the following path into the item field and click Next.
- %UserProfile%\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Quick Launch
Then give the shortcut a name – it’s Quick Launch by default.
When done, it should look something like this – with the Quick Launch folder shortcut listed.
Now when you want to add a program or other item to the Quick Launch bar, just right-click it, and select Send To > Quick Launch.
There you go! Now you can easily access the item from the Quick Launch bar.
