Make quick work of different folders by learning how to add folder to Taskbar for faster access in Windows 10.

The Taskbar is just like an assistant, servant or butler. Whatever you call it, it’s there to assist you all the time. It is one of the very few things other than the right click menu which users can access from anywhere in Windows.

The Taskbar has the capability to hold many important items or most frequently used programs of your choice. Taskbar has been one of the ever present features of Windows but it has received the most significant upgrade in Windows 10. While it has always contained system tray icons in its right side, the Task View and Windows Search bar are the newest additions to it.

Furthermore, with this functionality you won’t have to specially go to that folder manually and then open it to access it contents. What you simply have to do is click on it in the Taskbar and access its content as simply as shown below.
