How to Add Excel 2007 to the Windows Vista Quick Launch Toolbar

If you want to start Microsoft Office Excel 2007 by clicking a single button, you can add the Excel icon to the Quick Launch toolbar. The Quick Launch toolbar resides to the immediate right of the Start button at the beginning of the Windows taskbar.

Follow these steps to add the Excel 2007 program icon to the Quick Launch toolbar:

  1. Display the Windows desktop and drag the Excel 2007 desktop shortcut icon to the Quick Launch toolbar.

    When you position the icon on this toolbar, Windows indicates where the new Excel button will appear by displaying a black, vertical I-beam in front of or between the existing buttons on this bar.

    If you don’t have an Excel 2007 desktop shortcut icon, you can drag the icon directly from the Start menu to the Quick Launch toolbar instead.

  2. When the black, vertical I-beam is positioned where you want the icon to appear, release the mouse button.

    As soon as you release the mouse button, Windows adds an Excel 2007 button to the Quick Launch toolbar that enables you to launch the program with one click.
