    The library icon


    I have Windows 8.1 and I had the Library icon pinned to my task bar. But I somehow unpinned it. Can someone tell me how to get it back? Thanks.

    Hello Frank,

    If you like, you could right click on the "C:\Windows\explorer.exe" file, or create a new shortcut with that path, and click on "Pin to taskbar" to do so.

    It works, Shawn--Thanks. I've been reading about the library and it seems to be something to know more about.

    You're most welcome Frank.

    Yep, libraries can be quite helpful to be able access files from different folder locations in the library location.

    That will keep my busy for a while. I might not even watch the World Series tomorrow.
