Windows 10: Pinning things to the file explorer on start bar? Solved

    Pinning things to the file explorer on start bar?


    Not sure whether this is the appropriate forum, but, when you right click on the file explorer icon on the start bar you see, among other things, some frequently accessed folders and you see some pinned folders (downloads, pictures etc.) and I'm wondering whether there's any way to add some folders to the pinned list that I'd like to add for quick access.

    I can't seem to find any way to do it.

    @Alfred001, if you hover your mouse to the far right of any name in the 'Recent' list you can pin it to the list of pinned items. This works for the File Explorer icon on Start and on the taskbar (if you have File Explorer pinned to the taskbar).

    Ah, thank you!

    I noticed that but thought it was for unpinning.
