Hello Gawasa,

You could pin the folder as a toolbar instead. The same method in this tutorial for Quick Launch can be used for this. Just navigate to your folder location instead in step 2.

Quick Launch - Enable or Disable

Hope this helps,
Shawn

Cheers.

Gawasa,

The only other option that I know of would be to pin the folder to the Start Menu instead.

Hope this helps,

lol - I tried to foll the system and created a batch file and it would not let me pin it to the start menu - I then created a shortcut to the batch file and it still would not let me pin it to the start menu - I finally renamed the batch file to a .CMD (CMD applet) file - and it *still* would not let me pin it.....
