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.

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)
