"Taskbar shortcuts are located in: %AppData%\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Quick Launch\User Pinned\TaskBar.

You can also add the ""Quick Launch"" folder to your task bar as a toolbar to re-enable the quick launch feature."

"If you don't like Quick Launch, you can create your own with ""New toolbar"", which can be anywhere; it's a folder. The toolbar name is the folder name.

I put it under the hidden folder C:\ProgramData so it will be easily accessible to all users. But it can go wherever you like."
