Windows provides some predefined toolbars that can be accessed through the Windows taskbar. One of these toolbars is the link bar. The links toolbar allows us to access the “Favorites” or “Favorites” pages in web browsers. Currently in Windows 10, the Links toolbar supports the "Favorites Bar" section in Internet Explorer only, Edge is not supported.
In this article, we will follow some steps on How to add the shortcut toolbar in Windows 10:
Right-click on the Windows taskbar. Go to "Toolbars" and click on the "Links" toolbar.
The shortcut toolbar will arrive on the Windows taskbar, but the icons will not appear on the Windows taskbar. Therefore, it can only be accessed with the help of the “» “icon.
To show some of the icons, you need to check if the Windows taskbar is locked or not.
If the taskbar is pinned, you can remove it by right-clicking on the Windows taskbar and clicking “Lock Taskbar”.
Then, the Windows taskbar will be unlocked.
You can now drag the toolbar onto pinned icons on the Windows taskbar. The toolbar items will now also appear on the taskbar. Just click on these items to access the applications.
Clicking on any of the links will take you to the web page with the help of your default browser. For example, we clicked on the “Google” link. This link will ask the default web browser to open the specified web page.
Note: You can use the desktop toolbar more efficiently by using a minimum number of favorite links or bookmark links in your web browser.
