How To Pin 'My Computer' to the Windows Start Menu

Tuesday, October 22, 2013 1 minute read

Today I'm going to share with you my approach for pinning My Computer to my Windows Start Menu. I prefer to pin My Computer rather than the regular 'Windows Explorer' because I've got a number of hard drives, and I don't enjoy how Explorer organizes it. With this shortcut, you can click it and it will bring up the overview of all your storage and portable devices. This is much more useful.

The Shortcut

Right click on your desktop and go to New > New Shortcut. Paste this text in:

%SystemRoot%\explorer.exe shell:MyComputerFolder

Follow the rest of the steps to finish creating the shortcut. When you're done, you can right click on this link and Pin to Taskbar.

That's all it takes!
