    Lots of programs have a Quick Access Bar (QAB) and it is one of the greatest feature. I dislike the ribbon and QAB allows me to quickly find the functions I use most for that pgm.

    Re: charms - look in the Action Center (Notifications icon) by the clock - MS made a good replacement for Charms
    I'll look at that when I get the time, but for now, QuickLaunch serves my purposes with one click rather than several.

    Yeah, they're really two different things (or 3). They're all time savers!

    That's the short reason; however, I have everything I use on a daily or weekly basis to QuickLaunch. It's there ready and waiting for me to grab what I need. Here's what it looks like.

    You might find Bins a useful utility - it's not free though - not expensive either.

    Cute! I like the layout holding like stuff with like. And the price is quite reasonable.

    The first time I saw it on a member's screen shot I thought "Now how did they configure that - I want to do it too!" I still think it's a good value and if I ever get to the point where I can't trim down my taskbar, I'll definitely buy it.

    Bill, didn't anyone ever tell you that those "around to it" things never happen?

    No, it is for Win 7/8, so i will wait for Bins or Stardock to get a more modern look on the taskbar
