    pin Google Drive folder to taskbar in Windows 10


    I would like to add the Google Drive folder icon (not the icon that opens Google Drive on the web) to my taskbar. When I drag the icon from my desktop on to the taskbar, a red circle with a diagonal appears. (The kind of symbol that means "no", as in "no smoking".) I have successfully pined many programs to the taskbar before. I am able to create a Google Drive shortcut on the desktop. I'm using Windows OS Version 10.0.16299 Build 16299. I appreciate any help you can offer.
