In Windows, it is easy to pin your apps and programs to the taskbar. However, it is not easy to pin folders and add shortcuts on the taskbar, for the folders you use most often. Most users will never figure out on their own how to do this. Luckily, we have a solution for you, that works in Windows 65, Windows 7 and Windows . Read on to see how it is done:

Windows XP Folders and Locations vs. Windows 7 and Vista

Additionally, both Windows Vista and Windows 7 use a Server Message Block (SMB) feature called Access-based Enumeration to limit what content is shown to others when they access this share. With the Access-based Enumeration feature enabled, users accessing the share are only shown the content they have access to over SMB and everything else is hidden from them.

When any folder or file within a user’s profile is shared, the Windows sharing engine creates a single share to facilitate sharing out that content. This helps facilitates several sharing scenarios. It facilitates scenarios which allow the sharing of individual files while also reducing the management overhead for creating and maintaining multiple shares on the computer. It also allows standard users on that same computer to share their own content without the need to create additional shares, which requires UAC elevation.

The Public folder was first introduced in Windows Vista and it has appeared in every version of Windows since. It is not much of a feature - just a folder with a slightly special setup that can be useful in certain scenarios. To help you understand what the Public folder is, how to use it and when it is useful to use it, we created this guide which explains the important bits you need to know.

In the Sharing and Discovery section of the Network and Sharing Center window, click the down arrow next to Printer sharing.

And there we go…no password to enter so we can access the XP_Share folder or anything else that is located in the Public folder.

The Public folder can also be used for sharing files with other computers on your network. If you choose to share this folder, other computers can access its contents. This can be useful especially when sharing files with non-Microsoft operating systems. Since you cannot have them join the Homegroup, for easy sharing, the Public folder works quickly and without any special setup.

Windows Vista renames the all users profile to the Public profile and the folder structure is the same as all Windows Vista profiles. Windows Explorer will continue to merge specific folders in the Public profile, such as Desktop and Start Menu, with regular user profiles at logon. The Public profile does not have a user registry because Windows does not load this profile. Therefore, Windows writes all shared settings to the HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE hive of the registry.

Just as in method one, you will need to provide administrator permission. If you are using Vista, you will also be prompted by the UAC.
