This one seems a bit trickier than it sounds. On Vista, 2K8, XP, I tend to have a shortcut to `Computer` in the quick launch bar, for easy access to the list of partitions on my system and the likes, made simply by dragging the `Computer` icon from the Start menu into the quick launch tray.

However, doing this same thing with the superbar will ONLY create a shortcut to the Libraries folder, and it will not seem to accept even an existing shortcut to `Computer` being copied to it.
If anyone can figure out a way to do so, and I do mean specifically on the superbar itself rather than having to have quick launch showing, I'd really like to hear it.

Drag a shortcut to Computer to the folder on the Superbar. Computer will then show up as a direct link from that context menu.

I'm aware of this one, I just wondered if there's a way to create a direct link. I use shortcuts to Computer dozens upon dozens of times a day and it seems odd and inconvenient to have to go about doing so in such a strange way, as well as slightly strange that the superbar won't allow you to do so easily.

I can't find a way. Closest I can find it to add a toolbar to the taskbar and remove the text. At least then you've got direct access to drives from the taskbar. An alternative would be to grab the freeware version of ObjectDock from Stardock which will do exactly what you want.

Thanks for the ideas. Guess there's a challenge for someone to figure out how to do this if anyone wants something to do. ;)
