Access Web Sites or Folders via Taskbar with an Address Toolbar
SUMMARY: Visit a web site or navigate to a folder via the Windows 7 Taskbar by adding a Toolbar.
In Windows 7, you can click the Start button and type in the name of a web address or folder to open up your web browser or Explorer. However, if you perform these tasks often you may want another way to do so.
If you use a wide monitor or do not frequently have many icons on the taskbar, consider adding an "Address" Toolbar that provides an alternate means of navigating to web sites or folders. Just type in the name of your desired destination and press the Enter key.
1. Right-click an empty area of the Taskbar.
2. Select "Toolbars" - "Address".
