Windows 7: Movie pinning?

Movie pinning?

Hi all.

I have on the taskbar of my screen a folder that takes me to things I have recently done or used and I also have pinned things in the folder so that when I right click it it gives me the option of going straight to stuff like 'Music' , 'Vuze Downloads' and 'Downloads.

It's a great shortcut for me to reach all the things that I want without having to go searching through menu's all the time.

The problem is is that I have recently unpinned my 'Movies' folder and I do not know how to pin it back.

Can anyone help me out on this, I'd be grateful.

Cheers, all the best, Ste.

Can you post a screenshot of your taskbar please.

If this is a toolbar then you need to find the "Movies" folder and put it in the toolbar folder.

Drag your Movies folder to the folder on the taskbar to pin it.

Alternatively, you can use the Taskbar's "Links" toolbar. Just right-click on the Taskbar, select "Toolbars" and then "Links." This will place a Links folder in the Notification Tray. Drag your Movie folder there and you'll have instant access to it without cluttering up your Taskbar.

Thanks all.

Went with FliGi7 in the end, very easy, probably should thought of that myself.

Cheers again! Ste.
