Can't pin drive shortcuts to taskbar in Windows 7

This is probsbly a simple question but I can't figure out how to pin a drive or network shortcut to the task bar.  In Vista I just dragged it there.  In 7 it give me the "pin to windows explorer" option

This was helpful but I can't find the "target" command for the C drive or Network places.

You have another option which is the route I took.   You can recreate a quick launch section of your task bar where you can store the drive or network shortcuts.  

To do this:

1. Go to somewhere in your C:\ drive where you would like the folder (which will house your quick launch shortcuts) to be.  
2. Create a folder and name it whatever you want.
3. Right click on the task bar
4. Click Toolbars
5. Click New Toolbar
6. Navigate to the folder you created and select it

BOOM.  You have a classic quick launch.  Drag it where ever you want and drop your shortcuts there.

Let me know if this helps.
