Is there a way you can have these kinds of app folders on the windows 10 taskbar?

  • I don't have a direct answer to your question, but what about opening your apps in different virtual desktops and then you have them divided like that, instead of taskbar folders – fernando.reyes Apr 25 '17 at 20:02

  • on the taskbar would be the best because my desktop gets messy quickly... – BRHSM Apr 26 '17 at 8:36
