Pin HD to Taskbar?

How do I go about pinning my C: drive to the taskbar? Right-clicking the explorer icon is a pain in the ass.

You can drag the C drive out of any Windows Explorer windows onto the desktop to see a shortcut created there. But you won't find any option for pinning that or even dragging it directly onto the taskbar itself. You simply use the shortcut to open a new explorer window directly to the drive itself.

Hello Cam,

You can create a shortcut for the drive, then move it into a new folder at the location you want to store this at. Next, use the same method in the tutorial below to enable Quick Launch, but select the new folder instead.

Quick Launch - Enable or Disable

Hope this helps,
Shawn

You had the same idea I was going to suggest I see.

Drag top border line of taskbar downwards to hide taskbar
Is there a method/hack or a 3rd-party program that allows the user to hide the taskbar by dragging its top border line downwards, after un-locking the taskbar? I remember I could do that under Win9x.
