Windows 7: Custom Toolbar -> Games

Custom Toolbar -> Games

Hey guys,

I'm trying to make a toolbar on my taskbar that directly coorelates with the games folder in the start menu. Is there a way to find that specific directory? I don't see how else to make that happen.

Thanks

I tried to locate the directory but I had no success myself...

You could make a toolbar of shortcuts to your games

Figured it out; the directory for the start-menu games folder (or for any other start menu folder) is c:/program data/microsoft/windows/startmenu/games.. its actually a really nice toolbar if you don't want your start-menu/desktop cluttered with icons.

I don't have a folder called Program Data in my C drive. Can someone help me find it? and also, how would I turn it into a toolbar?

Program Data is a hidden folder, you need to go to control panel->folder options. Under the View tab change it so that windows shows all hidden folders/files/drives. (If you can't find folder options, try changing the view mode to 'small icons')

You can make it a toolbar by right clicking on the task-bar->toolbars and selecting new toolbar. Then just use the c/programdata/microsoft/windows/startmenu/programs/games directory and boom. xD
