    Thanks Brink. I disabled it & after a shutdown & start up, the Quick Link filled in a second. Cheers.
    Great news. I'm glad it was able to help.

    I've had a new small problem with the QL taskbar since doing a clean reinstall of Win 10 over the weekend. There are now too yellow buttons at the right end, one called ImplicitAppShortcuts and the other Taskbar. No matter how I try to delete them, they always come back at the next startup. Any ideas about this?

    Hello @highstream,

    Those are the folders inside the hidden folder located below.

    %AppData%\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Quick Launch\User Pinned

    The issue appears to be that the User Pinned folder above may no longer be hidden allowing the other folders in it to appear on Quick Launch. Setting this User Pinned folder's attributes to be hidden again should get rid of those folders for you in Quick Launch.

    The catch-22 I'm seeing is that hiding those two folders renders the standard placement buttons on the left side of the taskbar inoperative, while replacing those buttons brings back the two folders on the QL section.

    You would only want to hide the "User Pinned" folder, and not the other two in it.

    The shortcuts you want to see in the Quick Launch toolbar should be in the "Quick Launch" folder.

    User Pinned folder has had "hide" checked all along. There's got to be something else involved.

    As a test, lets reset and clear pinned apps on your taskbar to rule it out as a possible cause. You'll have to pin to taskbar your apps again afterwards though.

    If that doesn't help, then let's see what's in your Quick Launch folder to see if anything may stand out there.

    Thanks. It looks like I solved it. Created a new taskbar and dragged/dropped icons onto it. So far nothing extra.

    Great news.
    "So far..." Two folders reappeared on startup (or sometime shortly after) this morning. They are "Quick Launch" and "UserData."

    Quick Launch should be there as the toolbar itself, but the other should be a hidden folder.

    Do you have Windows set to show hidden folders?
