How to pin an application with the string "help" in its name?

I am unable to pin an application or shortcut to the taskbar if it has the word "help" in its name somewhere. Changing the name of the exe or shortcut so that it doesn't contain the letters 'h'-'e'-'l'-'p' consecutively works, but this is retarded.

Did you know: Windows doesn't like the name 'con', either.
Try naming a new text file 'con' and see what happens.

Can you pin the program to the task bar first, then rename it?

Well, that's pretty lame. But at least I can still have a text file named 'construct' or 'inconvenience'
