You could try pinning the shortcut to the task bar and or the start menu. Create as you did before and open file then right click on the icon in taskbar and "pin it" to task bar??

I would be very happy to try to explain

Put the folder on the taskbar

Then move the cursor to another part of the task bar

Right click on your mouse

Then select lock taskbar

Maybe I don't quite understand what you are trying to do. But as far as I can see, this is a toolbar of a folder called "Games". Where did you park that folder (which is the repository of the toolbar) and did you either delete or move it after you created the toolbar? That would be an explanation for the disappearance of the toolbar.

Put the folder on the desktop. Maybe (or maybe not) that helps. I always keep the repository folder on the desktop and never had the problem you describe.
