You're watching VisiHow. In this tutorial, we are going to show you how to create a taskbar shortcut for Notepad so that it is easy to quickly edit your HTML documents.
To create the shortcut, we need to move the cursor to the taskbar and move to the far left to the Windows icon.
Now, we left-click the Windows icon.
Alternatively, we press the Windows key on the keyboard. The key is next to the space bar. Let's activate the "Start" menu now by clicking the icon or pressing the key.
We need to click the down arrow at the bottom of the "Start" menu.
This will take us to the applications area.
What we want to do now is go to the search bar and click it one time.
Now, we type "note".
The Notepad application is the little blue notepad that comes up as the very first icon.
What we are going to do now is right-click on "Notepad" one time.
Then, we click "Pin to taskbar" this will pin Notepad to the taskbar.
We can press the "Esc" key once to go back to the "Apps" menu.
We can press the "Esc" key again to go back to the desktop.
Now, we move the cursor down to the taskbar.
We will see that the Notepad icon will be added to our taskbar.
Click the Notepad icon once to open the Notepad application.
The window will be labeled "Untitled - Notepad".
We close the window by clicking the red box with the white "X" at the upper right-hand side.
