Create Taskbar Pinned Items Into an Expandable List

Hi all, I am starting to have a lot of pinned items on my taskbar. Is there a way to add some into a list I can expand from the taskbar. Here is what I have at work on my XP. Something similiar would be useful!



Thanks Hornet

Maybe set the taskbar setting to never combine might work you can try it:

Taskbar Button Grouping - Enable or Disable

Hello Hornet, and welcome to Seven Forums.

You could add Quick Launch to the taskbar, and place shortcuts in it to use like this.

In addition, you could also pin a folder to the taskbar as a toolbar, and place shortcuts in it to do this as well.

Hope this helps,
Shawn

Thanks all for a quick & kind response! I did try searching the internet but couldn't get the right search terms. I did consider pinning a folder but the quick quick launch works better!
Thanks for the welcome. Ill probably hang around
