Configure the length of the QuickLaunch bar

I'm looking to find the place where you can configure the length of the quicklaunch bar. I'm thinking its probably in the registry.

Maybe it hsa something to do with this:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Streams\Desktop
????

Thanks,

Paul.

are you reffering to how to make it wider so you can see more icons or add more icons.

if so

just grab your mouse and place it in the quick launch  bar and on the right side
of the bar you can point your mouse on the straight  "up and down line" and
it will change into  2 arrows   <---> then click and hold the mouse and move
until  disired size is found.

if that what your asking.

if your reffering about time , then i am afraid i dont what your asking

Well there are about 200 PC's here operating from a single mandatory profile... so I really need to edit the registry or one of the files in the profile in order to make the change...

Get a master PC, run up Regmon (from www.sysinternals.com), make the change, and then go through the log in Regmon (which will be large) to find the change. This is a user setting, so once you have determined ithe setting, and assuming that mandatory profiles can be adjusted by  Group Policy (I don't know), then the change should be easy to effect.

Thats definitely the way to go about doing it. I won't have time to give this a go for perhaps a week or two, but when I do find it, I will let you folks know the specific registry key that the setting is stored within.

Thanks!!

Also looking for this registry setting.  Have you by any chance found out which key it is yet?

No I haven't had time yet, but i'm sure the above method will do the trick! Would be great if you could let us know if you find it!

Cheers,

I think I've narrowed it down to one of these two settings, and of the two I'd bet on the second one.  However, having said that, they look long and complicated to change...  Let me know if you can make more sense of them.

HKCU\software\microsoft\windows\currentversion\explorer\stuckrects2\settings

HKCU\software\microsoft\windows\currentversion\explorer\streams\desktop\taskbar

Hmm, Perhaps if you change the length by the width of 1 icon, then copy and paste those values to a notepad document, then do the same, perhaps 4 times, then line up the values one above the other and see if we can spot something changing in there.
