    How do I Pin An Additional Harddrive/Folder to Taskbar?


    I have tried looking for this but haven't had any success in the forums.

    I want to Pin my additional hard drive (Local Drive) to my taskbar in windows 8.1!

    I would also like to Pin a particular folder to my taskbar too.

    I can't find an answer for this. Is it Possible?

    Thanks in advance.

    The easiest way is to download Pin to 8: WinAero: Pin to 8

    1. Run Pin to 8
    2. select Pin to a folder
    3. select the drive/Folder then click select Folder

    Do you want the jump list for these items to work, or do you just want some clickable shortcut on the taskbar? If the latter, a toolbar with title and text unticked would just do the trick for you. (Create a new folder wherever you like, in which you place shortcuts to the drive and the folder you'd like to have on your taskbar, then right klick on your taskbar -> toolbars -> new toolbar, then select the folder you just created.)

    Hello tmyc,

    If you like, you could pin a folder and drive to the taskbar as a toolbar.
