    I have a lot of useless things in it(as you can see) and i want to replace them with other programs to show up in the quickstart menu.

    [img]http://premium.uploadit.org/Filliz/quickstart1.gif' width='200' height='120' border='0' alt='click for full size view'>

    Things like the wmp,real one( threw that off of my system ages ago),outlook,sonic,...are the things i want to get rid of because i hardly/never use them.

    So how do i do this?

    And why does that real one player keep showing up?
    Stupid musicmatch folder is also still in my program files,and I removed that months ago as well

    hmm...asspie

    Right-click on the item should have a menu which will allow you to delete it.

    To add new ones, try dragging and dropping from the desktop onto the quicklaunch toolbar.

    RealOne player: You probably have RealOne Agent running or something, try disabling this, or look in the options of RealOne player to stop it putting itself back in..

    Create a new shorcut and let it point to "appwiz.cpl".

    That opens Add/Remove programs.

    Tried right-clicking the icon in the QS-menu to remove wmp from it but that didn't do anything.It supposedly deleted the shortcut but it didn't

    Weird thing with RealOne player is that it is no longer in my Add/Remove software folder nor in my program files.
    Same thing with Musicmatch Jukebox...it's not in the Add/Remove,but it does have a folder in my program files
    Tried deleting it before, but it keeps coming back after rebooting my PC.

    Create a new shorcut and let it point to "appwiz.cpl".

    That opens Add/Remove programs.
    ermmm...stupid question maybe(probably) but...create a new shortcut for what?
    And how do i make it point to "appwiz.cpl"?

    hmm...asspie

    Right-clicking "Quick Lunch"(mmmm...tasty ) and "Open" just opens the menu...there's no option for adding or removing software to the list.

    Anyway,i managed removing the unwanted shortcuts out of it,now i'll try to add shortcuts by "drag&drop"

    hmm...asspie
