If you've seen or experienced this - let me know what you did, if anything besides a complete system rebuild from scratch. Suggestions to move to XP are not acceptable or relevant to the question.

Can't you just click on the line to the far left of your taskbar, next to the Start button, and drag it all the way to the right?

Not sure if this is what you're looking for, but it seems to fit the symptoms.

I can tell you how to change the Start button to say something other than Start. Will that do?

Seriously, have a poke around Winguides.com. They publish some very good help files on the OS and the registry. And, if the answer isn't there, they have an online support where you can ask the question to a more targeted audience.

Good luck.

Okay, I had just recently installed a fresh copy of Win98 here at work, so I could duplicate what I think you're talking about.

Here'e what you do: You can "grab" the left edge of the quick launch toolbar and drag it to the right of the start button. It might be easier to do this if you make the whole toolbar on the bottom larger by dragging the top line up.

My install was with win98 second edition.

The Quick Launch feature is a waste of tool bar space for me.

I just drag a shortcut from the desktop or file to the "Start" button.
After the shortcut is in the start menu you can click on it and move it where you want in the start menu.
Or you can right click any thing in the start menu and choose "Sort by Name" from that menu and they will be in alphabetical order.

What you will have to do is click and hold on the vertical line that is now next to your "Start" button, then drag it to the right of the quick launch toolbar. You may have to resize the toolbars when done to get everything just the way you want it.

The toolbar, for whatever reason, lets you move things right, but not left. Go figure.

Too simple of a question. Try a little harder and you can get it back on the left-hand side. I'll give you a hint, it's called drag and drop, but you need to have something to drag it over first.
