    How to add C drive to taskbar?


    I'm trying to add a link for the root of the C drive to my task bar.
    I tried creating a link to C, then right clicking, nothing comes up saying pin to taskbar??

    You can right click the C: drive and choose Pin to Quick Access, or Pin to Start and then drag the shortcut to the Taskbar.

    File Explorer is the new name for Windows Explorer (eg) the yellow folder on the task bar, there is already a shortcut for C: in File Explorer and This PC

    1. Open This PC, Right click on C drive and hold down, drag to desktop->Create Shortcuts here
    2. Right click on desktop shortcut->Pint to start
    3. From start Menu->Right click on C drive->More->pin to taskbar
    4. Delete the short from desktop, unpin from start Menu


    NOTE: The shortcut is stored under:
    C:\Users\User\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Quick Launch\User Pinned\TaskBar
    User is your real user name
    However, you cannot directly create a shortcut to this folder, won't work.
