Life’s Shortcuts Made Easy with Windows® 7 Taskbar Customization
Are you always finding a shortcut to a path that you know is long and steep? Well, finding shortcuts to a problem is a natural human tendency. There may have been a time when you have opened your ‘Start’ menu in Windows 7 and are not able to locate the folder that you have been searching for on the Taskbar. This can be in the case of opening drives from My Computer on the desktop. But, instead of opening from the desktop, why not just add My Computer shortcut to your Taskbar?
Making any changes to the Taskbar menu is called customization. You can customize your Windows 7 Taskbar by following these four simple steps:-
- In Windows 7, click on the ‘Windows’ button located at the lower left corner.
- Right click your mouse on the menu that is displayed after clicking on the ‘Windows’ button and select ‘Properties.’
- Click on the ‘Start Menu’ and select ‘Customize’
- In the ‘Customize’ menu, you will receive a list of items that you can include or remove in the ‘Start’ menu. E.g. you can add other folder such as ‘Control Panel’ so that it is displayed on the ‘Start’ menu, for ease of navigation.
Through these easy steps you can configure shortcuts to your Windows 7 Taskbar. Besides adding folders, you can also add application short-cuts to your Taskbar.
