Quick Launch Live/Active Shortcut
« on: May 07, 2009, 12:22:58 PM »
So I've decided to "tweak" and/or update my Quick Launch toolbar, which I keep just to the right of the Start button. I've noticed that I've been navigating to my "My Documents" folder on the desktop unit over the LAN (I think it's LAN, I'm not so good with networking). Now I have set the shortcut to appear when clicking on the "double arrows" icon to expand the list. Immediately it is an "active" link (I'm sure there's a word for that, but I can barely type today. LOL.)

Okay: Actual question: Does having that link "active" hinder performance overall? Is it just in a state of cat-like readiness or does it hibernate like an external hard drive? Am I making sense? Please let me know.


I swear, I'm not trying to wreak havoc. LOL.
Kind Regards,
