Windows 7: Adding Recycle Bin to the Taskbar?

Adding Recycle Bin to the Taskbar?

In build 7000, I was able to right click the Libraries/Explorer icon on the taskbar, and somehow access Recycle Bin, Control Panel, and Computer.

How do I do it again? Here's a pic if you don't know what I mean.

It shows where you recently visited.

Forgot to mention you can pin those locations into explorer as well.

Hello Cam,

You can drag the Recycle Bin, and Computer (from Start menu) down to the taskbar to have it pin inside the Windows Explorer icon on the taskbar. The Control Panel can be pinned seperately on the taskbar by opening it, right click on the icon on taskbar, and click "Pin this program to taskbar".

Hope this helps,
Shawn
