Create a universal command line on your taskbar

Create a universal command line on your taskbar

You can run anything -- open a folder, run a command, search a Web site...all from your taskbar. To set it up:

Right-click the taskbar and choose Toolbars/Address. You get an IE-type address bar in your taskbar. What's it good for? Everything.

Type a command, it executes. Type a folder name, Explorer opens up and shows you the folder. Type a URL, the Web page appears. It's sort of a "universal command line."
