Icons on the Quick Launch Toolbar Do Not Respond to Shortcut Key


The information in this article applies to:

  • Microsoft Windows 2000 Advanced Server
  • Microsoft Windows 2000 Professional
  • Microsoft Windows 2000 Server


When you use a shortcut key to start a program on the Quick Launch toolbar, the program may not start.


This issue can occur if the shortcut key is only configured in the shortcut icon located on the Quick Launch toolbar.


To work around this issue, follow these steps:

  1. Right-click the icon on the Quick Launch toolbar, and then drag it to your desktop.
  2. Click Create Shortcut Here.
  3. Right-click the shortcut icon on the desktop, and then click Properties.
  4. Assign the shortcut key to this shortcut, and then click OK.


Microsoft has confirmed this to be a problem in Windows 2000.
