Like you I missed the quick launch. Using your method I deleted to toolbar name inserted a mydocs shortcut, then shortcuts to folders containing my most frequently used programs. I left the myDocs shortcut exposed, so one click opens Mydocs. Single clicking on the >> brings up the shortcut folders, and a hover opens the correct one for a single click to open my program. So 2 clicks to get what I need is better than using the start menu most of the time, the old quick launch bar, and particularly explorer/libraries, which is what I have been doing. (I keep an empty desktop, but even having the links there usually involves more work.)
Thanks for the tip.
