    I can only get my Quick Launch Toolbar to display three icons in Windows XP.
    To view more, I have to arrow over on the QLT, then select from a list of
    hidden icons. This sort of defeats the purpose of the Quick Launch. Is
    there any way to expand the number of icons displayed on the QLT? Thanks.

    Unlock the toolbar and move the separator to the right.

    Sure. The size of three icons is the default, but you can make it any
    size you want. Simply drag the separator at the end of the Quick
    Launch Bar.

    If the taskbar is locked, you'll have to unlock it first. Right-click
    on it, and click "Lock the taskbar" to unlock it.

    Right-click on the Taskbar and deselect "Lock the Taskbar".
    Use the grips that appear to adjust the toolbar widths.
    When satisfied reselect "Lock the Taskbar".
