anyone one know how to add programs to the quicklanch menu on this theme?? thanks to whoever holds the answer.
Win2k/XP: "C:\Documents and Settings\$USERFOLDER$\Application Data\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Quick Launch\"
Win9x: "C:\Windows\Application Data\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Quick Launch\"
That's where the links reside that gives awe to Quicklaunch ;) (unless that's a freakish theme)
Go ahead, copy a link of your most fav game to that dir and be amazed...
i dont think i have that dir. i spent a good ten minutes just searching. perhaps there is a simpler way to insert programs into the quicklaunch menu for this particular theme. thanks though
Dunno what's wrong. You should have that dir.
Win XP hides the application data folder - you'll have to type in the path or something...I dunno how to make WinXP show it...
when i go into the documents and settings it doesnt show the folder. and when i paste that path nothing comes up either. any other ideas??
dwel, do you realize that $USERFOLDER$ is not actually a folder, but a variable? $USERFOLDER$ = your user name in windows. So it'd be something like "C:\Documents and Settings\dwel\Application Data\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Quick Launch" if your windows user name was "dwel".
also, what OS are you running? that path is only valid for Win2K/XP (and possibly WinMe, I dunno). I'm not sure what the path would be for earlier versions.
yeah i know that. i dont have the application data folder. the closest thing i have to that is a userdata folder. im currently running winxp pro. soo yeah i dont know wtf. thanks though.
WinXP pro is really weird about the username folders - try to check as many of the folders you can?
The paths I mentioned are for the quicklaunch bar in Windows. Some LS themes has a quicklaunch menu or something that shows the contents of that folder.
Other themes, however, doesn't use that folder. Instead it has it's own set of "Quicklaunch" progs which you can go and lookup in any of the .rc files. Check themevars.rc etc. I realized when I looked at the Simplicity theme I'm running.
Sorry dweL, I didn't realize sooner.
What theme are you using? Maybe I can check for ya.
Sorry, stupid of me. You're using the [non|step] theme aren't you? In any case, like I said some themes have there own unique quicklaunch setup. But the default popup menu should have these entries: "File Manager", "Text Editor", "Litestep", "Programs", "Quicklaunch", "System", "Tasks". In that order. The quicklaunch submenu are the default Windows quicklaunch shortcuts. Just right on the "Quicklaunch" entry and click "Open". The folder containing the qlaunch links should open.
if it were that simple. nonstep does not allow you to right click the quicklaunch menu but it does for the programs. but when i go into the control panel to open the taskbar and startmenu from there, it doesnt allow me to open that either. ehh i guess i just have to deal with it i guess.
hmmm... first try updating popup2 to 2.1.5 and try again
otherwise, there should be a line in popup.rc like
*Popup "Quicklaunch" !DynamicFolder:"$Quicklaunch$*.lnk"
remove the *.lnk and try again
okay thanks. ill do both and post with a reply. preciate it
looks like both suggestions did nothing in helping me find the quicklaunch folder. still open to suggestions. thanks.
type this into lsxcommand or bind it to a hotkey:
i binded it though all it does is pop up the menu like when you right click the desktop. it still doesnt find the path of my quicklaunch folder. is it just possible to make one??
well, that should pop up a message box with your quick launch folder in it... it sounds like your hotkey line wasnt correct, and it is just catching the win key... make sure it looks like this:
*Hotkey WIN T !alert "$Quicklaunch$"
hmm wow that does pop up a message box with the path...but the funny thing is, is that i dont have a folder entitled applications data. i dont know why it is like this but maybe someone else would have the answer to that. thanks for the suggestion.
its hidden, as hybridweb said... do this:
*Hotkey WIN T explorer /e,$QuickLaunch$
wow *** thanks. why did it take that long to get here!?!? im sorry you guys for all the trouble. i honestly do appreciate your help. saved me from getting a new theme =D. THANKS!!!
wait...though ive installed the shortcuts desired on my quicklaunch, it is still not on the quicklaunch menu. it is still empty. damnit. almost there though.
