    If you mean in Windows Explorer, yes. The thing is, though, I've had it showing hidden files & folders forever without seeing these extras, since long before the first time I needed to create a QL toolbar.

    As a test, see if they still show with turning off showing hidden files. If they don't afterwards, then we can try setting the folder to have a "system" attribute.

    Oh, I meant to write that I did change the hidden files/folder setting and clicked Apply and there wasn't any change.

    Hmm, ok.

    Let's see a screenshot of your %UserProfile%\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Quick Launch folder to see if anything may stand out.

    If all else fails, you could create new folder where you like, move your shortcuts into this new folder, then add this new folder as toolbar instead of the Quick Launch folder.

    View in XYplorer. In the left main panel is the Internet Explorer\Quick Launch folder. The files (.lnk) showing are on the QL toolbar at the bottom center right, the result of my dragging them there yesterday, except of course the two on the right. Those are again Quick Launch and UserData. The Quick Launch folder the next level down in the left panel has UserPinned and the next level down from there has ImplicitApps and Taskbar, both empty.

    On the right panel, I've dug down in User Pinned to TaskBar, and that shows the buttons over on the lower left in the standard toolbar.

    Odd. You do have some folders out of place.

    In the left side, you shouldn't have another "Quick Launch" folder inside your "Quick Launch" folder.

    The "User Data" folder should be in the "Internet Explorer" folder instead of in the 1st "Quick Launch" folder.

    Did you mean to have the same shortcuts pinned to the taskbar in addition to having them in Quick Launch?

    I do have some duplication, since I spend more time to the lower left than right. I wonder if the placement of folders is behind the problem. I just tried moving UserData to the IE folder and got a warning that there's overlap that might cause problems. I went ahead with that and deleting the extra QL folder and the two folders on the QL toolbar disappeared. Have to try a restart and see what happens.

    Hopefully that will have sorted it for you.

    So far... Placement of folders might be worth adding to the tutorial as a check point

    Usually, the folders are not like that by default. I'm glad to hear all is well so far.
