How to Add Address, Links or Desktop Toolbar

In this post you will see the steps to add the address, links or desktop toolbar in Windows 10. Let’s get started.

Windows 10 has three built-in toolbars, and they are:

Address – Allows you to open applications, files, folders and websites.

To open the file – enter its URL in the address bar and then press the Enter key.

To open a folder – enter its URL or its name and then press the Enter key. Not every folder is opened by entering its name.

To open the application – enter its URL or name and then press the Enter key. Like the folder, not every application opens by typing its name.

To open the website – enter the URL and then press the Enter key. Remember that you can also perform a web search from here. However, the search term should not be a single word, such as hello.

Links – Here you can see and access the content of the Favorites bar.

If you want to see the contents of the Favorites bar before adding the Links toolbar, follow these steps: Start Run. Enter Favorites in it and then press Enter. Now you will find the Favorites folder. Within this folder, you can find the Favorites Bar folder. Double-click it to view its contents.

Desktop – Here you can see and access the entire contents of the desktop.

If you want to see desktop content before adding the Desktop toolbar, follow these steps: Start Run. In it, type shell:desktop and then press Enter.

With all that has been said, let’s take a look at the steps to add built-in toolbars in Windows 10.
