How to pin folder to taskbar in Windows 10 TP
In Windows 7 Microsoft introduced a number of small but very useful features to improve the taskbar and usability on the desktop. Aero Snap, Shake, Peek, ability to pin programs to the taskbar, and options for quick access to frequently used files and folders using Jump List is just some of the highlights.
However, even though access to frequently used files and folders can be obtained by clicking the right mouse button on the Explorer icon, Windows 7 and Windows 8 do not allow users to pin folders to the taskbar, at least, understand.
Have you changed it in Windows 10? The answer is Yes. One of the many positive aspects of Windows 10 is that this version of the operating system allows you to attach folders to the taskbar without the help of third party tools. For example, you can mount «Boot» Images, Videos and any other folder to which you often refer. Another advantage of this is that you can open the pinned folder shortcut (Windows key + numbers 1 to 9).
To pin a folder to taskbar in Windows 10, simply follow the instructions below:
Step 1: First locate the folder you want to pin. Please note that you can’t pin multiple folders.
Step 2: Next, click the right mouse button on the folder, and then click «Pin to start». This will fix your folder in the start menu or start screen.
Step 3: Now open the start menu/start screen, right-click the mouse on the tile of the folder and click «Pin to taskbar». That’s it!
As you can see, Windows 10 allows to pin folders to the taskbar directly from the desktop or from Explorer, and it is not very convenient, as you have to perform one extra action. So, at least, is the case in the current preview version. One can only hope that the company will add this option in the Explorer context menu to release the final version.
By the way, in exactly the same way to the taskbar, you can attach the basket.
