Hello Shutrcz..

It should have been easier, and if someone knows an easier way, please let us know.

Here's How:

1. Right click on the desktop and create a new shortcut. Enter this at the shortcut path:
C:\Windows\explorer.exe shell:MyComputerFolder
2. Right click the shortcut you just created and choose "Pin to Taskbar".
3. You're done

Hope it helps

I must be missing something because the shortcut exists and works from within the shell:user pinned \taskbar explorer pane, but no icon appears on the taskbar itself after log off/on.

Indeed, it seems placing a shortcut in the user pinned folder isn't enough. However, this way you can now right-click the shortcut and choose :Pin to Taskbar. Then it appears. Thanks, edited the post above as well

Computer won't shut down, programs don't appear on taskbar
Sometimes when I start my computer, I'll find that my running programs don't appear on the task bar. This isn't too bad -- I can still use Alt-Tab to get around. Then I open the Start Menu, and the programs that are supposed to be pinned there are missing. Of course, they still show up under All...
