Creating a shortcut to folders in task bar in Windows 7

If you are using Windows 7, you might have noticed that you cannot "pin" a folder in the task bar. You can pin only programs. I wanted to create a shortcut to a folder in the task bar, so that I can open that folder by just a single click.

Here is an excellent hack I came across: http://www.unawave.de/windows-7-tipps/folder-to-taskbar.html?lang=EN. Whoever wrote that tip, a big thank you.
