How do I add Printers in taskbar toolbar for quick acces

Hello,
In Windows XP you can add a toolbar on taskbar with Printers Folder from Control Panel. Is there a way to add Printers folder in taskbar for quick access? I need quick access for printers to modify the default printer often.

Ok, in New Toolbar menu I only can select a folder and I did not find Control Panel like in XP to go to Printers&Faxes folder... (Devices&Printers for Win7)

Here is a little workaround for you.
Go into Devices and Printers, right click the ones you wish in the toolbar - Create shortcut.
On Desktop, make a new folder with the toolbar name you wish to see
Move all shortcuts into the new folder. Move the folder to another place if you wish.
Rename the shortcuts and delete the "- shortcut" part (for visual reasons)
Now, create a new toolbar and point to this folder.

Right click the shortcuts in toolbar if left clicking doesn't get you where you want.

Hope this helps.
