    Backup and Restore Quick Access Pinned Folders - TenForumsTutorials

    Taskbar - Backup and Restore Pinned Apps on Taskbar - TenForumsTutorials
    or
    Copy them from
    "%UserProfile%\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Quick Launch\User Pinned\TaskBar"
    but you will need to right-click, Pin to Taskbar on each one on the new computer.

    Start menu - Don't know.

    All the best,
    Denis



    Welcome to TenForums.

    It's really worth making time to browse through the Tutorial index - there's a shortcut to it at the top of every page.
    - At the foot of the Tutorial index is a shortcut to download it as a spreadsheet.
    - I download a new copy each month.
    - By downloading it as a spreadsheet I can benefit from Excel's excellent filtering capabilities when I search for topics of interest.
    - Tutorials are also listed by category at Tutorials - there's also a shortcut to that at the top of every page.
    - Both tutorial lists are searchable.
    - You can also search for TenForumsTutorials in many general search engines, such as Google, by adding site:tenforums.com/tutorials after your search term. For example,
    taskbar toolbars site:tenforums.com/tutorials

    You can search TenForums using the search box in the top-right corner of all TenForums webpages or using Advanced Search - TenForums
    - You can also search TenForums threads in many general search engines, such as Google, by adding site:tenforums.com after your search term. For example,
    Search for drivers by HardwareID site:tenforums.com
    - [This is what the search box in the top-right corner of TenForums webpages does automatically]

    Thank you. Isn't there any software which can backup the shortcuts in Quick Access, Start Menu, Taskbar, and windows setting in a window Profile?

    I know macrium can back up the whole computer, but not just the settings alone.
