    How to save Taskbar Quick Launch changes in Windows 8 ?

    this is my Desktop at the moment and I have optimized Quick Launch on the task bar as I like

    How can I backup my Quick launch Task bar? If I format my Win 8 and reinstall Win 8 I want back my Quick launch.

    another Problem, is there a way to set Live Mail into the tray?

    Hello Karadeniz, and welcome to Eight Forums.

    All shortcuts in Quick Launch are saved in the hidden folder path below. You could just back up the contents of this folder, then copy them back into this same folder below to restore them.

    C:\Users\(user-name)\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Quick Launch

    In addition, if you like, you might look at this tutorial below to make it easy to add items into Quick Launch.

    If you would like to back up your pinned programs on the taskbar, then see this below.

    I made back up with easy transfer app but I was not sure that easy transfer took quick launch too now I know it
    Brink thank you for that

    Should I open new Topic for the other Problem with Live Mail ?
    I have installed Windows Live Mail Version 2012 (Build 16.4.3505.0912) I would like to send it into the tray if I close live mail, that worked under Windows 7 but does not work unter Windows 8

    You're most welcome.

    Yeah, it would be best to create a new thread for a different subject.
