A Quick Fix

Quick fix

A quick fix is a quick solution to a problem, especially one that is temporary or inadequate. For example:

He offered a few
quick fixes for our city’s traffic problems, but, sadly, none of them were long-term solutions.

In other words, a
quick fix is a fast and easy solution that is, perhaps, good in the short run but is insufficient in the long run. Some recent headlines that contain the English idiom quick fix are:
