My quick launch bar has completely disappeared from my computer. I use a Pentium III (500 MHz) with Windows 98 2nd Ed. and IE 5.5.

Can you help ?

Try this.

Right-click on your toolbar.
Mouse Over Toolbars.
Click on New Toolbar.
Name it whatever you want.

Too many email signature changes to deal with?

Are you constantly being asked to update your organization's email signatures? Do they take up too much of your time? Wouldn't you love to be able to manage all signatures from one central location, easily design them and deploy them quickly to users. Well, you can!

Well, I'm in a kind of dilemma - stevenlewis and slink9 more or less suggested the same solution, by two different ways of approach. I quite mingled both answers, since I discovered that stevenlewis' folder "quick launch" already existed where he indicated it, and then I used slink9's mouse click hint to add it to the toolbars...

I think that the honor (and the 100 points ;-) will have to go to the first correct answer - but I definitely appreciate both experts' help !

(Last little question without ranking: is there a way to fix the order of the different toolbars ? I now have the "open windows or so" toolbar next to the start button, where I used to have the quick launch bar and where I'd like to heve it again...)

I didn't realize they were the same.  Stevenlewis was first.  Give him the points.
I don't believe you can change the order.

You can also split the points, go to community support
http://www.experts-exchange.com/jsp/qList.jsp?ta=commspt
post a zero point question there asking for help in doing this. Include a link to this question in the body of that question
as far as the order you can drag those tool bars around, or uncheck the "open windows or so" tool bar (with the right click)

The problems with reply email signatures

Do you wish that you could place an email signature under a reply? Well, unfortunately, you can't. That great Exchange/Office 365 signature you've created will just appear at the bottom of an email chain. What a pain! Is there really no way to solve this? Well, there might be...
