Quicklaunch feature I need!

I'd like to have a Quicklaunch icon when you mouseover, it behaves like your Start Menu that brings up a bunch of programs.

In other words, let's say I have a bunch of DVD-related programs. I make a Quicklaunch Icon, then associate a bunch of DVD Programs, and when I mouseover the DVD Quicklaunch Icon, the programs show up.

In this way, it would be much easier than clicking on my Start Menu, which has over 100 programs, and, I would have related programs associated with only one Quicklaunch Icon.

so make it

create a folder with all the shortcuts you want in it
rightclick the quicklaunch bar and go to toolbars.. new toolbar

find the folder with the shortcuts.. and hit OK

that will become a toolbar.. it wont just mouse over, but it will have an arrow by it and when you click the arrow.. it will pop up the listing of whats in that folder.. (your shortcuts)..

I do something similar to this with all my telnet sessions to my servers.. I have them all in an folder that I added as a toolbar.. so if I want to bring up a session, i just hit the arrow and select from the list quick.

Ok, I admit I had the answer in front of my face, and it could have bit me. Actually, it just did!

Thanks for the help though. I wouldn't have figured it out.
