Drag and drop the folder to your taskbar and it will show as being pinned under File Explorer.

Increase the number of Pinned items

Navigate to this set of keys in the Windows Registry:


Look through the list in the right-hand pane until you find this DWORD: JumpListItems_Maximum

In my case, the JumpListItems_Maximum DWORD was not there, so I had to create it.

Right-click the JumpListItems_Maximum DWORD and select Modify. Click the Decimal radio button and change the number to a value that works for you. I selected 30.
