JumpLaunch turns your Quick Launch folder into a Windows 7 Jump List

Plenty of people were thrown off by the Quick Launch toolbar's disappearance from Windows 7. It hadn't actually disappeared, per se - it's just hiding where you're not likely to notice it.

You can handle this a couple of different ways. The Superbar still supports toolbars, so you can right click it, choose toolbars -> new toolbar and paste "%appdata%\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Quick launch" in the folder box. That's a pretty Windows 95 way to do it, though.

Why not quickly convert your Quick Launch folder to a Windows 7 Jump List?

JumpLaunch is a small, portable app designed to do just that. Download and unzip the archive to a folder on your PC, launch the app, and you're presented with a window containing all the shortcuts currently residing in your hidden Quick Launch folder. Adding other items is as simple as drag-and-drop.

JumpLaunch is a free download, is tailor made for Windows 7, and works with both the 32 and 64-bit builds.
