    Hi, I've been trying to pin the Downloads folder to the taskbar ater getting a new computer. It was possible on my old laptop which I got in 2016. Was there an update that changed that?

  2. pinned a folder from desktop to taskbar, dissapeared

    Right-click File Explorer shortcut (Pinned) in the Taskbar and see if the folder is listed.

    It should appear as Pinned item in Quick access as well.

  3. Pin Folder to Taskbar

    I'm not having any luck in pinning a folder to the taskbar. I have one folder pinned there but can't seem to duplicate it.

    I select the folder in file explorer, right click and select "pin to start". Then, I should be able to go to start, right click the folder and select "pin to taskbar" but that isn't an option. I get unpin, resize and open as three choices.

    I tried dragging the folder but that didn't work. The taskbar is unlocked if that matters. Was this removed as an option?

  4. I cant pin the Downloads folder to the taskbar.

    Pinning "Settings" to the Taskbar

    I've tried both suggestions. But thanks to your(?) earlier post, I do have an icon pinned to the taskbar for settings.

    Both were my posts I cant pin the Downloads folder to the taskbar. :) In fact, at first I forgot to post the usual steps to pin Settings to taskbar, and rather complicated (which I thought) by suggesting you create a shortcut. Hence the 2nd post. Anyway, glad the shortcut method helped.
