Are you holding down Shift + right clicking at the same time?

Brink I'm afraid i'm missing this point as well (shift plus right click pinning)???? Not working for me as well. Is it only for certain folders or any folder?

Just tried it again, still not working. I have the upgrade retail version of Windows 7 x64 Ultimate.

LOL, sorry, but you will need to enable this first. I forgot it was not enabled by default in Windows 7.

That's brilliant Brink, but in your second post on this thread you referred to pinning to the task bar (as well as the start menu) and it's that that I'm trying to do- i've done it for My Docs as per the tutorial but is it possible for the other user folders such as Pictures, Videos etc? Thank you very much.

Yes, you can do it with any folder. You would pin a folder to the taskbar by adding the folder as a toolbar instead.

In my old Windows XP I could set the folder view for each folder individually but in Windows 7 it seems that if I change the view in one folder it changes all the folders. I have found that if I access a file by avoiding the libraries (which is a long way round) then I can do it but if I use...

Folder views and options
I like my folders/files view to be the "details" view - name, size, date, all that stuff. I can see how to get to "folder options" to make that happen, but the "apply to all folders" button, which would make this my default, is grayed out so I can't click it. How do I fix this? Also, in...
