Putting my frequently used programs and using large Icons in my Taskbar's Quick Launch toolbar is one of the useful things that I did in my desktop. Before I gave little attention to my toolbar because the icons are very small. Having a resolution of 1280x800 pixels and 14.1 inch laptop screen makes it difficult to use.
Using Large Icons
Confronted with that dilemma, I now use the Quick Launch toolbar everyday. It speeds up my work especially in coding and writing blogs. It has a limitation in space, so I recommend, only put the frequently used program icons and PIN the others to Start Menu.
1. Unlock the Taskbar: Right-Click your taskbar and Uncheck "Lock the Taskbar" option
2. Go to a vacant space in your Quick Launch toolbar, Right-Click and View->choose "Large Icons".
3. Lock the Taskbar: Right-Click your taskbar and choose "Lock the Taskbar" option.
