Pinning a program shortcut to the taskbar is easy but does anyone know how to pin a folder shortcut to the task bar? I can easily pin one to the Start Menu but, in this particular case, I would prefer to have it on the taskbar.

A bit of work but can be done.

Install Classic Shell and get the best of Windows 7 with XP Fly Out Menus.

Trust me on this one !!!! :) :)

I tried the first option and it worked! A bit involved but nothing this computer challenged old bit...broad couldn't handle. I copied the directions to a Word doc so i can refer to it in the future (I have a good memory; it's just short).
