Unlock the taskbar by right clicking on it and then select unlock toolbar. Then you can change the order and drag and drop shortcuts into in. Also, if you paste this in the explorer address bar, it will take you directly to that folder: %Appdata%\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Quick Launch

I need to save it so i can restore it silently with one click, probably there is a registry path where i can get this configuration or something like that..

After a lot of searching found this :

I think it's working.

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

My suggestions were very relevant based on the authors initial statement. But anyway, thanks to Djé's comments on MSFN, your link providing that the Author has enough sense to find the answer, will answer the Authors request.

You should award the points to Kpax77 and not just close this thread without doing so. It's not his fault the author decided to take the answer and run away the way he did.

Thanks.
But the author said that he wants to save the order of icons not changing the order by drag and dropping.
Changing the order in %Appdata%\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Quick Launch won't affect the order too.

Best regards
