Perfection through simplicity!
If you look at the blogs on this "issue" ..... I find it amazing that your solution was/is so simple. Works perfectly!
I also find it interesting that yesterday when I dragged "Windows Update" from the Start Menu to the desktop the resulting shortcut did not have the pin options, yet yours does. I have no idea what the difference is.
You might want to change the title of the tutorial to add "pinning" to the Start Menu as well as the Taskbar....... that's where I put it.
Thanks once again.
