    Is it possible to pin a folder or a library to the taskbar in win 7 and have the content of those folders / libraries show up on the jump list?

    If I try they get pinned to Windows Explorer instead.

    AFAIK it is not possible. You could pin the folder in the jumplist, which won't give you the content of the folder in the jumplist but is the only thing that is possible.

    its weak crap development on the win7 taskbar anyway....You can find extensions for the taskbar that give better improvements and workflow enhancements than Microsoft's poor efforts.

    I would not go that far to call it crap or poor. I think the taskbar is a huge improvement in Windows and besides the folder / library issue i really can't think of anything else i am missing.

    Why do you think the current taskbar is poor?

    If you would be able to answer the question without insulting anyone, without using words like "noob", and without using faulty reasoning then I, and many others on this forum, would be more than willing to listen to your arguments and respond to them seriously.

    I'm waiting for results not forum feedback Sven. And Win7 is a pretty poor result to me, that is what I'm saying.

    And I have given reasons as to why the taskbar is poor here on c9 already. I'd be more helpful in suggestions and feedback but its really best given to those who can actually do the job properly, cleary that is not Microsoft.

    But not in the manner I requested.

    Koogle, you need to stop this rhetoric. You are adding little value to the conversation because the positions you apparently think you maintain are weakly put forth and in such a way that nobody cares what you say. If you want to have a conversation and supply arguments that question the status quo, then you need to lace your words with reason, with logic, with sense.

    I'm very close to banning you for intentionally inciting unrest in the Channel 9 forums. Apparently, that's your goal; not conversation. Can you change your behavior or do you just want to leave? If you don't change your behavior and you don't leave then we will close the door on you (and we never want to do this to anybody - Channel 9 is about freedom of expression, but when this expression is done in disrespectful ways, well, then we have little recourse but to ban).

    Relent,

    THere is a work around. I remember something like put your links in your IE's "Favorite Bar" folder. Then you right click on your taskbar to Enble the toolbar called Links.

    Leaving WM on 5/2018 if no apps, no dedicated billboards where I drive, no Store name.
