    add file explorer to taskbar


    I am new to this forum. I have a custom computer, ECS A780GM-A motherboard, 6 GB of ram AMD CPU, 2.6 GHz tricore.
    I am currently upgraded to Windows 10 and learning my way around it. My question is can I add file explorer to the task bar and if so how do I go about doing it?

    not sure


    Do you mean left click, cause when I right click on it it opens, when I right click a menu opens and says pin to start and under more it says don't show in this list.

    well someone must have switched your mouse buttons around ,its always been right to access and left to open for me,, but as long as it works all is good.
