Windows 7: I wish there was a way to do this....


15 Jan 2009   #1

Windows 7, of course.
 
 
I wish there was a way to do this....

I really wish I could just pin say my documents or my pictures or my music libraries separately instead of just having the generic all-in-one explorer button pinned there. for me, i'd rather be able to just click once to go straight to my music folder so it's rather a step backwards to not even have the option. anyone know how to make this happen?

*edit* And yes, I do realize I can just put a shortcut to a certain folder in as a toolbar, but dang, I just want everything to be the same standard.

You can put your Library shortcuts on the desktop so that way you can access all your music or picture or whatever from one click on your desktop or you can make a new toolbar and attach them to that if that's more to your liking.

as my edit pointed out, neither of those suggestions is what i want.

i hope MS makes this possible by the final release.

You can sort of do what you want.

Right click on the taskbar, go to toolbars and select new toolbar
I dialog will come up asking you to point to a folder or library. Navigate to somewhere like your pictures or music and select in the library and select that folder.

You will now have a direct link to that folder, its sub folder and all its files on the taskbar.
