Hello. I'm an older-in-age computer user. I don't like windows libraries (I've removed them with a registry hack) for various reasons - the first being I ended up not backing up my photos (and consequently losing them) because I was backing up a library. Annoying, and it is gone (or at least I hope so).
I want to be able to open a folder immediately from my taskbar. I blog a lot, and being able to quickly get to my pictures folder is a time and grief saver. I pinned the folder to my taskbar (with that "create notepad doc, change to .exe, drag to taskbar, change target property hack). All well and good.
Except when I click on the folder, that damn windows explorer pops up next to it! I don't want that. I just want to click on the folder and get to THAT folder. Plain and simple.
What am I doing wrong? How can I get windows explorer to stop popping up on my taskbar, especially for folders that I've already pinned to the taskbar?
Screenshot 1: Shows the properties of the pinned folder. I didn't change the icon yet.
Screenshot 2: Shows windows explorer popping up in taskbar when I click the pinned folder. Not necessary.
Thanking you in advance for your help!
