Windows 7 does not have a Quick Launch facility that was in Windows XP and Vista. However, by creating a new toolbar on the taskbar, you can achieve the same effect.

For those of you that want to add Copy To and Move To to the right click context menu (see picture below) here's a quick way.

Open a note pad and copy/paste the following into it:

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\AllFilesystemObjects\shellex\ContextMenuHandlers\Copy To]
@="{C2FBB630-2971-11D1-A18C-00C04FD75D13}"

[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\AllFilesystemObjects\shellex\ContextMenuHandlers\Move To]
@="{C2FBB631-2971-11D1-A18C-00C04FD75D13}"

Now save it as CopyMove.reg. Then right click on the reg file you just created and select and click Merge. Viola you've just added them to the right click context menu. :)

Windows 7 has a really slick hidden option, GOD MODE. All you have to do is make a folder and name it "GodMode.{ED7BA470-8E54-465E-825C-99712043E01C}" without the quotes. You can actually change the GodMode to anything but the key after it >> .{ED7BA470-8E54-465E-825C-99712043E01C} << is what opens ALL the options for Windows 7 in one place laid out and open for the messing up your machine till your hearts content.

Enjoy,
