Try right clicking on your tool bar. Choose Toolbars and make sure that Quick Launch is checked.

Hope this helps,

Do you have this directory?

C:\WINDOWS\Application Data\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Quick Launch

In this directory I have 4 shortcuts
Internet Explorer, Mail, and Show Desktop, & View Channels


or if you are on a network

C:\WINDOWS\Profiles\<UserNamer>\Application Data\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Quick Launch

Don't anything showing in here.

Let me know if this helps,
Craig

Right click on the desktop and make sure you have the "Active Desktop" active... If this is not, you can't use the "toolbar" features...
