How to put any folder  into your taskbar for easier access

If you find that you’re constantly going to a certain folder to do your work, you can put that folder into your taskbar for quicker access.

  1. Right-click on an empty space in your taskbar
  2. Navigate to Toolbars
  3. Click on New Toolbar…
  4. When the “New Toolbar – Choose a folder” box pops up, you can navigate to the folder you want, single-click on it and click “Select Folder” (bottom right)
  5. You will then find it in your taskbar on the bottom right to the left of the “Systray” (extreme right)
  6. Click on the chevron (double arrows) and you’ll see all the contents of your chosen folder.

If you wish to disable it, just right-click on an empty space in the taskbar, navigate to “Toolbars” and then uncheck the name of your folder.  Now you just access your folder in the usual way you were used to before.
