How to Add Applications to My Toolbar

A toolbar is an additional feature users can include with the Windows task bar. It is a row of buttons or links that contains shortcuts to other places or applications in the operating system. Windows lets users add their own applications or programs to the toolbar.

Right-click an empty region on the taskbar.

Point the mouse to "Toolbars" and choose the type of toolbar you want to create.

Access the location of your applications. Click and drag the application to the toolbar in the task bar. Now you will be able to access your applications directly from the toolbar.
