Hi Jonas,

Do you mean that you need to hide/unhide windows tools bar programatically?
If so, I suggest you check the following KB article.

Hi Kevin.

No i donīt need to hide/unhide the taskbar. I only want to
activate/unactivate the Quick Launch tray in Win XP. Right next to the
start-menu you have this litte toolbar that can contain shortcuts to
applications etc. As a users you can activate/deactivate this function just
by rightclick on the Toolbars menu and mark or unmark Quick Launch.
I need a way to activate only the toolbar function Quick Launch.

Hi Jonas,

The quick launch information is put in a folder in Documents and
Settings\username\Application Data\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Quick
Launch. You can use Process.Start to launch it directly like the following:

System.Diagnostics.Process.Start(@"C:\Documents and
Settings\v-kevy\Application Data\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Quick
Launch\Launch Internet Explorer Browser");

HTH.

Hi Jonas,

Sorry for the misunderstanding. Now, I understand that you need to
show/hide the quich launch area on the windows toolbar. Am I right?

Based on my research, this interface was not exposed by shell32.dll. So it
seems that we cannot enable/disable it programatically.

If you need further consulting on this issue, I suggest you try to contact
Microsoft PSS. Here is the contact information:
