I know I can get documents as a tool bar on the right side of the task bar, but don't like it there or the way it's presented. 

 

In the past I was able to pin only documents (not user files) to the left side of the task bar, but can't remember how to do it.  When I try with just documents, it pins the whole user files.

 

Can anyone please tell me (easy steps) how to pin documents to the left side of the task bar?

 

Thank you.

Follow the directions here http://www.7tutorials.com/how-pin-any-folder-windows-7-taskbar

I found this several years ago when I wanted to pin a specific documents folder to my taskbar. This adds Pin to taskbar to the context menu of whatever you want to pin. Simple procedure that does not take long to do.

Make sure you leave the space which is mentioned or it will not work.

This does work for those items which have no option to pin to taskbar.

If you do this and have any problems post back. Also post back if it works for you.
