Windows 7: How to make the Explorer button STAY on the taskbar?

How to make the Explorer button STAY on the taskbar?

I love the button on the taskbar that opens a new Explorer window, it's really useful. However, the button disappears whenever I have any windows open! Is there any way to make this button stay there all the time so it can be used to open multiple new windows?

Even better would be if I could have more than one Explorer button which I can use to open different folder locations.

Is there any way to do anything like this please?

You could create shortcuts to any folders you want. Then pin the shortcuts to the taskbar.
