Windows 7: Pinning items to taskbar question.

Pinning items to taskbar question.

I'm using Win7 HP. If I create a new folder on my desktop, I don't see a "pin to taskbar" option when I right click on it. How do I enable that capability? Thanks.

Hello Jacatone,

Only programs will have the "Pin to taskbar" option, but you can use the method in the tutorial below to pin the folder as a toolbar on the taskbar though.
Taskbar - Pin or Unpin a Folder
....or you could create a shortcut of the folder in Quick Launch on the taskbar.
Quick Launch - Enable or Disable

Hope this helps,
