Windows 7 - Delete Custom Toolbar from Taskbar

Posted on 2011-04-27
Last Modified: 2012-05-11

In Windows 7, I created a toolbar by right-clicking my taskbar and selecting Toolbars >> New Toolbar.  I chose the folder C:\Shortcuts for this new toolbar.

I would now like to get rid of the toolbar I created, but all I can figure out how to do is uncheck it so it doesn't show up on my taskbar.

What I would like to do is completely remove the toolbar I created from the list of available toolbars.

Thanks in advance!

    When I uncheck mine, they go away. After I uncheck it and go back in, the custom bar is gone. What is your bar, just a link to a folder?

    Wow, I feel dumb.  I didn't even try unchecking it because I assumed it would just stay there.  Unchecking it does indeed remove it from the list of available toolbars.
