Quicklaunch annoyance, question
« on: February 06, 2010, 05:00:45 PM »
I use the Quicklaunch folder for a lot of shortcuts (about 50).  When I open the QL folder it sometimes takes a few seconds for the shortcuts/icons to appear.  This usually happens the first time I open the folder, but can occur anytime.  I guess it needs to load the links/icons into cache or something?  I was wondering if there a way to force the QL shortcuts to be loaded - so there is no delay.   Any ideas?


btw - I know there is a setting for menu delay or something like that - mine is set to zero.  I set menu animations off.  My PC runs Xp on an intel Core2 6300 and 2gb ram, and is reasonably fast for most things I do.

That's odd - I have not seen delays with the Quick Launch toolbar before. There is a long existing sorting bug in QL, and since MS has done away (for the most part) with QL in Windows 7 I doubt that the sort bug will ever be addressed. I used to get around it by renaming the links and putting numbers before each.
