Tekzilla Daily Tip #35: Launch Windows Apps with a single click!
If you're tired of always going through the Start button launch your apps... BUT don't want your desktop littered with shortcuts then try using the Quick Launch bar. The Quick Launch is a section on the left side of the Taskbar that lets you place a single click shortcut for any application! If it's not enabled just right-click on your taskbar and then select Quick Launch. It's a simple and easy way to add convenience without the clutter to your Windows experience.
