Create new SharePoint pages that include the Quick Launch menu

admin

When you create a new page in a WSS-based environment and you want to work with mostly out-of-box functionality, there is no way to add a web part page that includes the Quick Launch menu. An easy way to accomplish this is to copy and rename default.aspx in the site root using Windows Explorer. Just go to a document library and select Open in Windows Explorer in the Actions menu, then go up to the root level. Found this very useful tip at:
