Paste this into the address field of your explorer and hit Enter - see what you find. It's a Christmas present from me.

When it says All Tasks, drag it from the explorer address field onto the desktop and you have a shortcut.

Speaking of tinkering, here is another tip: Right click on any entry in the All Tasks list and create shortcut. Do that for every function/facility that you think you will use more often. Stick all those shortcuts into a folder on the desktop and make a Toolbar out of it. Now you have an easy access to the functions/facilities you selected.

I just moved the shortcut to ObjectDock. Still fully available without taking up taskbar space.

No, No, I am not talking about the All Tasks shortcut. I am talking about shortcuts of the many functions/pages it lists - select those that you use often, create shortcuts and make a toolbar from those. Sorry I was not clear enough.
