Does anyone have a simple way of controlling which icons appear on the Taskbar on Windows 7?
I know they appear in C:\Users\%Username%\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Inte rnet Explorer\Quick Launch\User Pinned\TaskBar\ once you have set them but you can't just add these to the Default user directory to copy into new profiles.
I want to replace the IE and Media Player icons with others of more use, I've found a few threads on the net like this Add Quick Launch / Desktop Icon locations to Default User profile through registry changes
Which give this as the instructions
reg load HKU\ntuser.dat c:\users\default\ntuser.dat
reg import taskband.reg
reg unload HKU\ntuser.dat
rem (Microsoft Word.lnk, Mozilla Firefox.lnk)
copy /y *.lnk "C:\Users\Default\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Intern et Explorer\Quick Launch\User Pinned\TaskBar\"
taskband.reg looks something like this (I shortened the 1st 2):
Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
But I've not done much fiddling with the registry so I'm getting a bit lost! Any help (in slightly plainer English) would be very appreciated!
