To create a new toolbar
You create a new toolbar by pointing to a folder. The new toolbar will contain icons representing shortcuts to the contents of that folder — files, subfolders, programs, and Internet shortcuts. The name of the toolbar will be the same as the name of the folder.
Right-click the Windows taskbar, point to Toolbars , and then click New Toolbar .
In the New Toolbar dialog box, select the folder for which you want to create a toolbar, and then click OK . Windows 2000 adds the folder as a new toolbar, named for that folder, to the Windows taskbar.
The easiest way to create a new toolbar on the Windows taskbar is to drag a folder from My Computer or Windows Explorer onto the taskbar. If you want to add the new toolbar as a floating toolbar on the desktop, drag the toolbar from the taskbar to the desktop.
