Can not change order of Icons in Quick Launch Taskbar

Archived from groups: microsoft.public.windowsxp.general (More info?)

Have XP Home Edition with all current updates. Do not have toolbars
locked.
By mistake, moved the whole Quick Launch Taskbar and lost it. When I went
to Start > Properties > and enabled Show Quick Launch, I got it back with
all my icons. The problem is that they are no longer displayed in the
order
that I want and I can not drag them to change the order. Sometime in the
past, I was able to drag them to change their order. Again, I do not have
the toolbars lock set. I went to ...my application
data\Microsoft\IE\Quick
Launch and changed the sort order of the folder but it did not change the
display order when I rebooted the system. Any ideas on how I can change
the order?

    Drag all of them off the quicklaunch bar, then add them back one by one
    in the order you want?
