#333 Pin a program to the taskbar

Did you know that you can pin your favorite applications and/or files to your taskbar so you can quickly access them any time?

In Windows 7, you can also pin shortcuts for favorite or frequently used files, folders, and websites to the Jump Lists for each of those programs to the taskbar.
Learn more about Jump Lists here.

To pin a program shortcut to the taskbar, do one of the following:

  • If the program is already running, right-click the program’s button on the taskbar (or drag the button toward the desktop) to open the program’s Jump List, and then click Pin this program to taskbar.
  • Or if the program isn’t running, click Start, find the program’s icon, right-click the icon, and then click Pin to Taskbar.
  • You can also pin a program by dragging the program’s shortcut from the desktop or Start menu to the taskbar.
