Ok, i have yet ANOTHER problem with XP...... can't wait to switch to linux.....

I was messing around with the selective startup, turning off all the bleep i don't need. I accidently turned off the little icons right beside the start button, though. This is where i keep my "DESKTOP", "GAIM", and folder shortcuts. I forgot what the buttons were called, but they're gone.

What is the selective startup item called that makes those shortcuts pop back up beside the startbutton in the toolbar?

I think its the 'quick launch' bar your after:
right-click an empty area of the taskbar and under toolbars put a tick by 'quick launch'.

If when your quick launch is back and there is not icons there you can always drag your icons from the desktop to there, and it will put a shortcut on the quick launch, while leaving the orginal icon on the desktop.

Lol, so many posts for such a small problem.

Rimmer's answer was the one i was looking for. I have no idea how that got unchecked, since i never mess with the toolbar options anymore. Musta been something with the selective start-up, or maybe i ended a certain process.... who knows.

Thanx to all that responded.

Your welcome. Anytime.

Also to prevent it from "distorting" when accidently dragging on the toolbar. You might want to consider "locking" the toolbar. That's what I do. The smallest the "quick launch" can be when locked it 3, but I don't know about a maximum.
