    You can add a Folder and thereafter carry what you like to do:

    $o = new-object -com shell.application
    $o.Namespace('c:\My Folder').Self.InvokeVerb("pintohome")

    Hello @Hari haran

    As far as my knowledge goes, there is no Windows integration module for that kind of operations.

    Hope this helps with your query,
