Is your Desktop Cluttered

with Game (or Other) Icons / Shortcuts?  


≡≡≡ Here's a Trick ≡≡≡



( 1 )  Create a [Games] folder somewhere on your machine - it will only hold shortcuts so it doesn't need to be a place with a lot of space.  (I personally have MMO, SP Games, Apps and Development)


( 2 )  Now, create a Custom Toolbar on your QuickLaunch bar. Accomplish this by:

            Right-Clicking your Task Bar  ->  Toolbars  ->   New Toolbar...  Point it to that Folder you made


( 3 )  In Windows Explorer, Navigate inside the [Games] (or other) Folder that you Created.  Right-Click inside the Path Text-Box and Click "Copy Address as Text" in the Context Menu.


( 4 )  While still inside your (Games) folder, right-click inside and create New - Shortcut.  Label it the name of the folder, in this example, Games (or whatever folder you created).  Click Next and Paste (CTRL-V) the path to the folder.


( 5 )  Whenever you need to drag new games or other Icons / Shortcuts to that toolbar, Click the >> Next to your new Toolbar on the Task Bar and Click on the Shortcut you made that navigates to that folder.  It opens up and you can drag New Icons and/or Shortcuts right inside.  


( 6 )  I suggest *Moving* them there instead of *Copying* (unless you're doing this from the Start Menu, in which case Create Shortcut when you drag it over.



Here are an Image taken from a Screenshot from my own Desktop

to help understand what I am talking about Above.


Example Image

Taskbar (Right-Side) with 4 x Custom Toolbars ( [G] MMO, [G] SP, Apps, Dev )

The [G] in my case stands for "Games"

Taskbar with Toolbars - Example



Repeat these stepswhen you want to create a separate

Task Bar Toolbar for other things, like a separate one for

MMOs and SP Games, Applications and Development.
