    Well, first you want to make sure that the taskbar isn't locked.

    1. Right-click the taskbar and make sure that "Lock the taskbar" has no check next to it.
    2. Go to the folders you want to put on the Quick Launch.
    3. Right-click and hold down the right-click button on the folder and drag it to Quick Launch.
    4. Release the button and select "Create shortcuts here".

    i have the folders down there, but the problem is when i click on them they open the folder in an explorer window, what i want it do do is like on the start menu how it shows you the contents without acctually opening a window

    Hmm, I think:
    1. Right-click toolbar.
    2. Select Toolbars -> New Toolbar.
    3. Select Folder. Click OK.
