    Folder with Apps shortcuts

    Hello maybe this is a stupid question, but is there a way to add like a folder of sorts to the taskbar of windows 10 that has app shortcuts (like in a Mac has).

    They are called Taskbar Toolbars. You can put all manner of shortcuts in them and they can have their own subfolders so you can organise your shortcuts to suit your needs. My illustration shows one shortcut [to a Blank screen script] and lots of subfolders.

    See Add Toolbars to Taskbar - TenForumsTutorials

    They are created on the right-hand end of the Taskbar but you can move them to the left, next to the Start button, instead.

    Since you asked about App shortcuts, you will also be interested in

    You can also use this method -
    On your Desktop, make a shortcut to
    explorer.exe shell:::{4234d49b-0245-4df3-B780-3893943456e1}
    and call it Get shortcuts for apps or similar

    Then use the shortcut and File explorer will open at Applications showing a list of apps.
    Scroll down to any entry of interest then right-click, Create shortcut.
    It will ask you if it is okay to make the shortcut on your Desktop and then it will do it.
    Then you can move the shortcut wherever you want such as into your Taskbar Toolbar folder.
