How to add or delete programs from the Quick Launch Toolbar

The Quick Launch Toolbar lets you point and click to open Internet Explorer and other frequently-used programs.
Note: If the Quick Launch Toolbar is not displayed, right-click in an empty area on the taskbar, click Toolbars and then click Quick Launch.

To add a program to the Quick Launch Toolbar
1. Right click on My Computer
2. Click on Explore
3. Click on Local Disk (C:)
4. Double click on the Documents and Settings folder
5. Double click on the All Users folder
6. Double click on the Start Menu folder
7. Double click on Programs
8. Double click on MS Office 2000
To move the Office program you want to add to the toolbar (ex. Word MS Word icon), click on the icon and hold down the mouse button and drag the icon to the Quick Launch Toolbar. When the black vertical spacer bar appears, release the mouse button. The icon for that program will appear next to the other Quick Launch icons on the taskbar.

If the above steps doesn't work, then you can try this work around, just copy the desired icon into [C:\Documents and Settings\(username)\Application Data\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Quick Launch], see this picture below:
