How to Pin a Folder to the Windows Taskbar

 Windows does not allow you to pin folders directly to the taskbar. But there is an easy solution, all you have to do is create a new shortcut for the folder and then pin the shortcut to the taskbar. Here's how:


1. Right-click on the desktop or in File Explorer and select “New > Shortcut” from the context menu.
