    Custom folder pinned to taskbar?

    Is there a way to pin one or more folders to the taskbar?
    I know I can access it through the file explorer's jumplist but this involves too many clicks, and I like to be able to access my Downloads and Dropbox folder from the task bar, not the start menu.

    Or at least if I double-click on the file explorer icon in the taskbar, it takes me to my custom folder straightaway instead of 'This PC' or 'Quick Access'...

    That's ok. It's best to leave the thread so that anyone else with the same question may find it helpful.
