Edited by Lukward Thomason, Robert, Eng
Hi, welcome to VisiHow. This is a tutorial on how to create a folder shortcut for the taskbar on Windows 7 computers.
- 2It doesn't really matter what we're going to name it, it's the extension that matters. This file extension is '.txt', but we need an '.exe' file. To do this, when we name the file, instead of typing '.txt' we will type '.exe'. The window will prompt that if I change the extension, that the format will change. We will click on 'Yes'.Once the text document is created, we need to name it.Advertisement
- 10The target file is the exact location of the folder that we need to create the shortcut for. In this case, we're going to create a shortcut for the VisiHow folder on the H disk drive, so we've typed in 'h:\VisiHow' into the target file box. Click on 'OK' when the correct folder path is chosen.We can see that the icon has changed, and now we need to set the target file.
