This question deals with how to pin folders in Windows 7 and Vista since its not enabled by default.

I would like to see if its possible to take this one step further and see if I can pin a folder and then somehow enable a submenu (similar to the "Task" list that appears for Chrome) but where the submenu contains the folder contents.

Any ideas?

Something like the one where we could add a folder shortcut in taskbar of windows xp and then clicking on it would display the subfolder contents ?? – user57162 Apr 22 '11 at 12:50
I never did that on Windows XP, but yes that sounds roughly similar. In my case I have a directory of RDC files for Remote Desktop, so would like quick access to launch any given connection. – mindless.panda Apr 22 '11 at 18:08

This isn't really possible in the way that I think you want it.

A workaround which does work is to right click on an empty spot and choose Toolbars > New Toolbar.

Choose a folder, then click Select folder.

You will now get a folder on the taskbar that can be expanded to view its contents.
