DockFolders: Allow you to Create your Toolbar in Windows 11 and 10

Posted by

To access your favorite files and folders quickly on Windows 10, you can create a Toolbar on the Taskbar. Windows 11 doesn’t offer this feature, and with built-in options, you can’t create your own Toolbar, at least for now. So, if you don’t want to use File Explorer to open a folder, file, or program, you’ll need a third-party tool.

Our latest gearupwindows article will introduce you to DockFolders. With it, you can add a new toolbar to Windows 11 or 10.

DockFolders for Windows 11 and 10

Dock Folders is free to use and compatible with only Windows 11 and 10. It is highly customizable, and you can create your own toolbar in no time.

In order to use this application, you must first download and install it on your Windows 11 or 10 machine. Once Dock Folders is installed, it will sit in your system tray. You can access its settings by right-clicking on its icon and selecting Settings.

When you open the settings of DockFolders, you will see the Documents folder is added by default to the launcher list. Clicking the + or  button beside the Folders box, you can add or remove folders according to your needs.

Apart from adding or removing the folders to the launcher list, you can enable or disable the following:-

  • Load on startup.
  • Enable or disable sound.
  • Set a hotkey to open this app (Shift + Ctrl + F1).
  • Integrate to the right-click menu.

Once you have made the desired changes, click the Save button to store the changes.

To access the folders included in DockFolders, click on its icon on the system tray, and after that, you can navigate to your directed file or folder. You will see your files and folders aligned vertically in an elegant manner.


In my opinion, DockFolders may be an excellent alternative to launch files and folders to a custom toolbar. Using this tool, you can quickly access your files and folders from the Windows 11/10 Taskbar itself.
