Pin a folder to the Explorer folder in the Windows taskbar

August 14, 2018

These instructions are for Windows 7, but likely work the same for earlier and later versions of Windows.

If you have an Explorer folder on your taskbar, you may have noticed that when you right-click on it you get a list of Pinned and Recent folders. Adding another folder to the list of pinned folders isn’t easy to figure out, so here’s what to do:

  1. Navigate to the folder you want to add to the Pinned list of folders.
  2. Drag and drop it on top of the Explorer folder icon on the taskbar.

That’s it! Very simple, but not obvious.
