[How To] Pin Your Favorite Program Or Folder To My Computer

There are some programs or folder which you wants to access instantly and for this you can create a shortcut on your desktop or you can pin them to your taskbar or Start Menu.

But if you are a guy like me who love to keep desktop neat and clean then you might not want to keep folder or program shortcuts on your desktop and if you have lots of favorite program then taskbar and start menu might not be very useful for you.

To solve this problem you can put your favorite shortcuts on your My Computer of your Windows 7 and Windows 8.


  • Open your run command and type following command in it :-

%appdata%MicrosoftWindowsNetwork Shortcuts

  • It will open a folder, you can now put your Favorite program or folder shortcuts here and then they will appear in your My Computer.
