On Windows 7 and later, the Quick Start (Quick Launch) is actually a Toolbar that is essentially the same as all the other Toolbars (like the one that I have in the middle of my Taskbar, see the pic I posted in my previous reply). It differs only by the fact that it is positioned to the opposite side of the 'pinned' area so it is next to the Start button (or next to Search and/or Task View). Putting shortcuts on a Toolbar gives you the ability to stay organized when it comes to what item goes where on your Taskbar, as there can be multiple Toolbars, and they can also be placed in an area where they don't convolute the 'pinned' area or be individually disabled temporarily if needed, which can help people to stay focussed better. The contents of each Toolbar matches a folder tree. Users can edit/manage the contents of each folder tree, simply by using File Explorer to navigate through them, and, each (optional) subfolder's contents shows up on the Toolbar as a popup menu (cascade style). Another nice benefit is that the contents of folder trees can be automated via scripts and/or via Power Automate Desktop, for example. By contrast, the 'pinned' area of the Taskbar doesn't even let you add a separator or spacer to keep your pinned shortcuts away from your opened apps or anything like that so, it looks and feels like icon chaos, which, if I may be so bold to say so Sir, it most certainly is.How would a quickstart menu be different from just pinning icons to the taskbar?
