I am not sure with your version, but the usual way to enable it is to right click on a blank space on the taskbar and from the context menu that appears, go to Toolbars and in the submenu choose\check Quick Launch.

Well from what i figured out, the quicklaunch bar does not appear to be installed when only SP6 is applied to a freshly installed WinNT station. Theres no option for it in the context menu when right clicking on a blank spot on the taskbar.

However ive been told that in order to install the quicklaunch bar, I need to install SP4 before hand... but what if SP6 is already installed? Isnt there a standalone installation of some sort?

Quicklaunch is a function of Internet Explorer (IE 5 or better?). Look at your version of IE and also if the IE config has quicklaunch enabled.

Quicklaunch was a part of IE4, I believe there was a special entry during IE4 setup like "desktop update". IE 5.x and 6 do not contain that entry during setup.

You have to return to 3.2 browser (part of NT 4), then install IE4.0 with that desktopupdate and then to upgrade to IE5 or 6 if you need that.
I'm not sure you can do that after SP6 install.

Do you really need that on your NT?

Looks like ill be checking out IEAK weither "desktop update" can be packaged with IE6 and if not... uninstalling the current IE and updating with IE4 before installing IE6 should do the trick.

Thank DAO251
