Pin to program on jumplist

I want to have, say an Adobe CS5 Icon on my taskbar, and when I right click, it would show all the CS5 Programs I pin to it.

Note: I do not want that stacks program.

Hello Michael,

This may be able to help you do that.

Is there any way I can make separate ones instead of 1 big one?


Edit: I just had to copy it.


Although it seems that all icons on the list have a white background when they have a transparent background...

And is there a way I can pin websites (not shortcuts to them) to it? I get some error, which being american, and studying french, cant read.

You should be able to pin websites inside the jump lists of either the Firefox and Internet Explorer taskbar icons by default.

I have not tried the above with Chrome. Were you able to pin Chrome to the taskbar and pin sites like above or with using the program?

If not, as a workaround, you could create internet shortcuts using the Chrome EXE and the tutorial below. Afterwards, place the internet shortcuts in Quick Launch or a pinned folder on the taskbar using the expansion arrow with them to expand to see the shortcuts.

Well, I can pin sites to chrome itself, but what I want, is on a site called pokefarm.org, I wanted to use their favicon on the taskbar, and the jumplist had all the main links on it.

I'm not sure you can do that with a internet shortcut pinned on the taskbar.

The best workaround I could think of is something like this below on the left or right side of the taskbar. This was done by pinning a New Folder to the taskbar and placing the PokeFarm shortcut w/changed icon to favicon in there first, then add any other internet shortcuts from that site in there to have them cascade open somewhat like a jump list would.
