I know this is a dumb question...but, how do you move a program access down to your task bar. I currently have a desktop shortcut on my screen for a program and I would like to move it to my task bar at the bottom right of my screen.

Hi Tim,

You can simply drag and drop the icon from your desktop just to the left of the Icons on the task bar.

Hi tennistm.

You can drag shortcuts from your desktop to the QuickLaunch toolbar, which normally falls next to the Start button.

In Windows XP, you can create "Custom" toolbars to hold and organize additional shortcuts. To create a custom toolbar, right click the Taskbar, Toolbars, New Toolbar. Browse to a location on your hard drive and make a new folder (like, Custom). Open the new folder and drag in the shortcuts you want. You can also make sub-folders inside it to organize the shortcuts even further.

Does this answer your question?

Your quick launch (program shortcuts go on the left side. Auto start are on the right. If you do not have any programs there now, quick launch may not be active. Right click on taskbar/ go to toolbar/ check quick launch.
Then click and drag the shortcut to the quick launch area.
