how to open multiple windows with 'pin'.

I have Windows explorer in my taskbar with the 'pin' function, but i'm unable to open multi windows.
I have to use 'shift - left mouse click' or two times 'right mouse click' to open a new window.
is it possible to do this with just one mouse click?

Hello Robba,

You can pin the Computer shortcut to the right of the default pinned Windows Explorer, then everytime you click on the pinned computer shortcut, it will open a new Computer window.

Hope this helps,
