Windows 7: Can I pin an internet shortcut to the taskbar alone?

24 Jul 2012   #11

windows 7 pro x64

Pinning a site takes seconds: click the icon to the left of the web address in One Box, or the tab for the website, or the website's icon on the New Tab page, and then drag it to the taskbar. That's it. Once a site is pinned, it shows up as its own thumbnail, separate from Internet Explorer.

this way is much simpler, use this as your shortcut target

C:\Windows\System32\cmd.exe /c start /min "c:/Program Files (x86)/Mozilla Firefox/firefox.exe" ^& exit

you can have multiple shortcuts like this too

this method will open an anoying cmd popup window but i have minimized it with /min (so you cant see it) and it closes when you close firefox with the ^& exit
