When creating an Installer using Visual Studio.NET you can add an Icon to the user's Quick Launch bar as follows:
- Add a 'Special Folder' to the project for the User's Application Data Folder.
- Add three folders inside this, one inside the other, called: Microsoft/Internet Explorer/Quick Launch.
- Finally, add your icon to the Quick Launch folder.
