How do I pin a folder to taskbar in Windows 10

How do I pin a folder to taskbar in Windows 10
You don't. If you right click on the Taskbar | Toolbars and check Quick Launch, you can drag a folder to that section of the Taskbar.

Thx. I used to be able to do this in Windows 10 by creating a shortcut, pinning it to start and then pinning it to Task Bar but this ability seems to have been removed. Great pity as I spend most of my time on a computer going from folder to folder.

Contrary to your instructions, no Quick Launch appears when I right click Taskbar/Toolbars.

Option 1: Create a custom Taskbar Toolbar, pointing to a folder that contains the shortcuts.

Option 2: Pin an executable, say notepad to Taskbar. Then open this folder:

%AppData%\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Quick Launch\User Pinned\TaskBar

Right-click the Notepad shortcut Properties and change the target to a folder path.

Click OK. The taskbar icon wouldn't update immediately.

Option 3 (Easiest): Create a desktop shortcut to the folder you want to Pin to Taskbar. Target should be prefixed by explorer.exe. (say explorer.exe d:\mytools)

Right-click on the shortcut and Pin to Taskbar.
