Update - v2.00 RC1.01

Changelog
  • /WAITDESKTOP - this option causes it to WAIT until both explorer.exe and the main taskbar exist before continuing. This means it will be able to work even if started by some method which causes it to execute before the desktop is created, a common issue for unattended use or slow starting sessions. Due to circumstances this will be used, it does not timeout during the time it's waiting for the desktop.
  • "LeftToRight" or "RightToLeft" language option in Locale file (handled in "help" but not yet anywhere else)
  • /? no longer uses MsgBox, it was getting too long
  • Help file updates

And one last update, v2.00 RC 1.02

This update contains all the "loose ends".


Changelog:
  • Active window now usually restored afterwards. This is generally useful, in particular if the active window was something like WPI which may be showing important status information.
  • Help now fully uses RTF and proper dialog, which makes the help easy to edit and allows it to contain and display full formatting, screenshots, and other images.
  • Old Msgbox() calls cleaned up, old timeouts removed etc.
  • F1 = help now (see traytip). So help is easy to get in the app, not just using command line or source files.
  • Help files updated a lot, complete update of all text and translations.
  • Extra user information, "how to localize", and coder information in a text file (included).
The RC is about complete for me, except for bugs and improved localisation. Hope it's useful! Wazer, hope you like!

Source all included :) and free licensed CC-by-SA for anything I've added. Check out the "help" page, play round, check the instructions are clear (try compiling it yourself) and see what you think

The first things i just noted was that you tryed to translate all the languages that i have already added, could you perhaps change them all to english text,(Then ill ask the rest to translate from english to their country) in tray and add the following i already had translated for those languages.

Those here is already translated properly

For
CLASS:MSTaskListWClass; TEXT:

and new toolbar/folder as seen below.



;Case $Lang = English
Case $Lang = "en-US"
$title = "New Toolbar - Choose a folder"
$programs = "[CLASS:MSTaskListWClass; TEXT:Running applications]"
;Case $Lang = French
Case $Lang = "fr-FR"
$title = "Nouvelle barre d’outils - Choisir un dossier"
$programs = "[CLASS:MSTaskListWClass; TEXT:Applications en cours d’exécution]"
;Case $Lang = Dutch
Case $Lang = "nl-NL"
$title = "Nieuwe werkbalk - Selecteer een map"
$programs = "[CLASS:MSTaskListWClass; TEXT:Actieve toepassingen]"
;Case $Lang = Danish
Case $Lang = "da-DK"
$title = "Ny værktøjslinje - vælg en mappe"
$programs = "[CLASS:MSTaskListWClass; TEXT:Programmer, der kører]"
;Case $Lang = Swedish
Case $Lang = "se-SE"
$title = "Nytt verktygsfält - välj en mapp"
$programs = "[CLASS:MSTaskListWClass; TEXT:Program som körs]"
;Case $Lang = Norwegian
Case $Lang = "nb-NO"
$title = "Ny verktøylinje - velg en mappe"
$programs = "[CLASS:MSTaskListWClass; TEXT:Kjører programmer]"
;Case $Lang = German
Case $Lang = "de-DE"
$title = "Neue Symbolleiste - Ordner auswählen"
$programs = "[CLASS:MSTaskListWClass; TEXT:Ausgeführte Anwendungen]"

Im on 10.1 laptop im moving to another place so its annoying todo it on this machine to freaking little :)

Yeah, this should have been fixed because I spotted it on the way. Unicode was not happy, at one point I obviously mis-processed the original unicode text, and "Nouvelle barre d'outils - Choisir un dossier" was pasted into the localization strings source as "Nouvelle barre dӯutils-Choisir un dossier" and other languages the same. Meant to fix it, but obviously forgot - thanks :) The other translations already have English versions for you in the Localizations folder and the strings.au3 file.

I've fixed the text and will upload a corrected RC 1.03 after you've had a chance to look more carefully at all of it and anything else is checked as well. If you PM me, we can check any code without flooding the forum :)

Theres something wrong with the unicode output format when it reads from QL Localization Strings.au3 i corrected the spelling errors in QL Localization Strings.au3 and performed a new QuickLaunchClassic7_Localization_Preprocessor_v1,au3 compile and it was sucessfull but when i go to QL Localization Strings.processed.DO_NOT_EDIT.au3 i can see it shows as theres no unicode support again.. Did you already fix this or?. Please upload the lastest with the fixes you made to it.

Again i thank you for doing the time :). I only have a small amount of time and sitting on this little laptop does not make it better, but im here and trying to look into the stuff :)

wazer, awesome program! Does exactly what I need! But it doesn't seem to work on Windows 8 Consumer Preview. For some reason regedit pops up and the script stalls. It is possible to manually activate the Quick Launch tool bar in W8 CP, so that doesn't seem to be the problem per se.

Is there any chance you'll port QuickLaunchClassic7.exe for W8?

(BTW, I tested this out on W8 CP installed in a VirtualBox VM as Microsoft Virtual PC does not support W8 CP.)

Thanks, AsokAsus

THIS WILL ENABLE QUICK LAUNCH CLASSIC LOOK AND FEEL ON WINDOWS 7 VERSIONS

Never got tired of the new look in windows 7? Well i did. And found a way to make the taskbar look like good old XP days.


I started this topic some time, now after i wanted to reformat again. I took some time to look into the code again and make some improvements to the tool.


==============================================

Fresh install here
AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Quick Launch exists already but with that new touch desktop turned on when it goes to drag taskbar here on mine it dragged the window. The start is not as it was in Win 7. NO Start button
Might need to turn off that new Start or mod the file a little. Not sure yet

Asok asked me this in a different forum

I will look into this when win8 is official out since i did some code for win8 developer and consumer but they removed the start menu and classical way, however theres a tool out that can path/modified some strings in the files from m$ and give back windows 8 start menu but thats no solution for in the long terms, since it will get patched later perhaps because of security/issues.

wazer,

That would be great! I hate the half-assed taskbar pinning crap on W7/W8, so for all the computers I configure, I unpin everything from the taskbar and use your tool to restore Quick Launch. That way, ANYTHING can be added to Quick Launch, unlike pinning which essentially allows only executables to be pinned. I also hate the unmovable Show Desktop on the right of the taskbar, and Quick Launch restores the Show Desktop tool on the LEFT side of the taskbar as well.

Microsoft has totally butchered the UI for W8 Consumer Preview. Don't know if they'll restore the Start Menu or not when they make a final release. If they don't, it'll be a far bigger disaster for them than Vista. It would be insane for MS to try to make people use their near-useless Metro UI on laptops and desktops. Already, there's a great 3rd Party alternative to replace the missing Start Menu on W8, namely Classic Shell (http://sourceforge.n...s/classicshell/). I use Classic Shell on W7 and Vista as well, as it's far superior to the W7 and Vista Start menus anyway.

At any rate, I look forward to when you port Quick Launch Classic 7 Tool to Windows 8.

Asok.

Mediafire link from the first post is dead.

An alternative code for Func _ToggleTaskbarLock():
#Include <WinAPI.au3>
#include <WindowsConstants.au3>
Local $sLockTaskbar = RegRead("HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Advanced", "TaskbarSizeMove")
$hTrayWnd = WinGetHandle("[CLASS:Shell_TrayWnd]")
If _WinAPI_GetClassName($hTrayWnd) <> "Shell_TrayWnd" Then Exit
; Below, use $sLockTaskbar = 0 to unlock the taskbar or $sLockTaskbar = 1 to lock the taskbar
If $sLockTaskbar = 0 Then _SendMessage($hTrayWnd, $WM_COMMAND, 424, 0)

I see this program has come a loooong way and has become really wonderful,
Thanks a lot for all the work!
I was still using version 1.4 :)

I added 2 lines though at the end of the script (which speak for themselves for the ones that want to use it)


FileDelete(EnvGet("AppData") & "\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Quick Launch\Launch Internet Explorer Browser.lnk")
FileDelete(EnvGet("AppData") & "\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\Startup\QuickLaunchClassic7_shortcut.lnk")

The first line removes Internet Explorer from the QuickLaunchBar
The second line removes a shortcut from the startupfolder named "QuickLaunchClassic7_shortcut"

dum dum DUM!

My name is Adrian, I'm an IT Administrator from Germany, only days before a huge Windows Server 2003 XenApp 5 -> Windows Server 2008 Citrix XenApp 6.5 migration.
So the profile gets newly created on first login.

During the Windows 7 migration I learnt, that nearly every user wanted his Quick Launch back.

So I spent some hours with Regshot finding a way to enable Quick Launch by default, so I wouldn't have to setup 150 Quick Launches.

Your script is very nice btw.

The solution:

1. Create Quick Launch like you need it on a test user.

2. Create BackupQuickLaunch.bat, contents:

--BAT BEGIN--

reg export "Hkey_Current_User\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Streams\Desktop" QuickLaunch.reg

--BAT END--

(you can place the exported reg file on your "%logonserver%\netlogon" share, see below for Kix script)

3. Create RestoreQuickLaunch.bat, contents:

--BAT BEGIN--

taskkill /im explorer.exe /f
reg import QuickLaunch.reg
start explorer

--BAT END--

Kix:

RUN "reg import @lserver\NETLOGON\QuickLaunch.reg"

The trick is, that explorer.exe should not be running while the registry settings are applied.
Or during logon-script, when there is no explorer started yet (if so configured in policy).

Yay! Works on my test machines. No guarantee, but please post if it works for you too.

Reg export works for all machines if every user has same exact Quicklaunch setup.

I do it different by saving %userprofile%\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Quick Launch folder and copy in. Then use this script

At first I thought you meant, that now every user would share the same Quick Launch folder. But Windows is actually making it right, if I right-click on the Quick Launch and click open folder it points me to the correct folder in each profile. Although further testing will be required before rollout.

Specific Links can be copied or deleted by some logon script commands, in my case deleting the Server-Manager and placing an Outlook link.

In Kix that could look like:

if ingroup("blah")

copy "@lserver\NETLOGON\test.lnk" "%userprofile%\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Quick Launch\test.lnk"

else

del "%userprofile%\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Quick Launch\test.lnk"

endif

UPDATE:

A quick test showed, that this works in Windows 8 RP as well!

First of all, I have used wazer's solution for years (installing Win7 at people's homes) and it always worked perfectly and I am still grateful for the work it saved me.
But modron's solution is just brilliant in it's simplicity. It "happens" before the desktop is visible, so the quicklaunchbar is just there as if it never has been gone.
Now I have to live without the funny looks of the customer, when he sees the mouse moving by itself, installing the quicklaunchbar, but I can live with that :)

Hi,

This post is mainly for wazer and maxXPsoft.

I just tried 7quicklaunch.exe on W8 RTM and it worked just great! This was the version errored out on W8 CP. Just wanted to
set the record straight about this, since a few months ago I posted it didn't work for me on W8 CP. At any rate, this program when
combined with the current version of Classic Shell, and some theme and registry tuners I wrote, eliminate most of the MS crap
that crept in in W7 and the horrific crap in W8, making W8 actually usable for something other than chatting with your facebook "friends".

So, thank you to everyone here tha contributed to 7quicklaunch.exe!
