library folder in task bar

Ok....I can not seem to pin the folders library to the task bar. It somehow dissapeared, and when I go to drag/drop it on the taskbar, I get the red circle/slash do not allow symbol.

Hello wheresjerry

Follow these simple steps:

1. Open Start menu and then open Computer.

2. At the computer window, click Libraries on the left pane.

3. You will see a libraries icon on your taskbar. Right-click on it and select "pin this program to the taskbar"

4. Done.

Hope it helps.

Try this way:

Open C:\Users\_your_user_name\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Quick Launch\User Pinned\TaskBar

You will find all taskbar pinned items / shortcuts in there.

Right click in there and create a new shortcut, with the path %SystemRoot%\explorer.exe

Restart or logoff if necessary.

This should work.

Hi wheresjerry,

Limneos's method works, however there is a quicker way. Click the Start Orb and then click Documents. In the taskbar, right-click on the icon and select Pin this program to taskbar.

when I right click on my username at the top of start button options (upper right) I get an option to restore default libraries, selecting that, brings up the library folder.

What options do you have when you do this? This is what I get, firstly when it is not pinned to the taskbar and secondly when it is.
