Access Files and Folders From Taskbar

Today I will show you a very small but interesting and useful trick in windows. This tip will make your work a bit easier. I spend most of my time browsing on my laptop and the rest of the time when I get bored, I just navigate to all my drives and browse my files and folders. Each time I open File Explorer and browse through folders, they take some time to load the contents. Though it is just a matter of seconds, the navigation should be very fast when you want to access a particular file or a folder. Today I will show you an easiest and the quickest method to access files and folders from the taskbar.

This method is an easy way to navigate through files and folders on your system without the need to open Windows Explorer every time you want to access a file. I use this feature on my system as it allows me to access my files, folders, and drives immediately and it saves a lot of time.

How To Access Files And Folders From Taskbar :

Follow the below steps.

1. Right click on an empty area on your taskbar ( that long bar which is usually at the bottom of your screen). Do not right click on an area where active programs or icons are present. Choose an empty area to right click as shown in the below screenshot.

2. From the menu that appears, select Toolbars.

3. Again a new menu will appear. Select New Toolbar.


4. New Toolbar window will open up. Here you have to choose the folder which you want to add it to your taskbar. Select your favorite folder which you navigate frequently. I have added This PC folder on my taskbar which displays all drives.


5. After selecting your favorite folder, Click OK

A new toolbar will appear on your taskbar just beside the system tray (where date and time are displayed). Click on the arrow to navigate to all the folders.

How To Disable Or Remove The Added Toolbar :

To remove or disable the already added toolbar, just follow Step 1 and Step 2. Now, from the drop-down list, select the toolbar which you have added and which has a check mark next to it. Once you uncheck it, the toolbar disappears from the taskbar.

This is just a simple windows trike to make your daily tasks easier and faster.
