Add the Address Toolbar to the Taskbar

If you know the path and name of the folder you want to go to, typing it in the Address toolbar can get you there faster than pointing and clicking. To make the toolbar available, right-click on the taskbar; choose Toolbars and then Address. Windows will add the toolbar just to the left of the system tray in the taskbar. You can then open files and folders by typing in their paths. Windows folders, such as My Documents and My Computer, can be opened simply by typing their names.

You can also launch a program from the Address toolbar or open Internet Explorer and go to a Web site by entering its URL. Type winword and Microsoft Word will launch.

If a program doesn't launch from the Address bar, you can fix this by placing a shortcut on your desktop. Then you can open the program by typing the shortcut name (not the program's filename). If you have a shortcut named Lotus Notes, for example, enter the name as lotus notes, not as notes or notes.exe.
