Taskbar - Backup and Restore Pinned Items in Windows 7
This crashed my computer I was running win 8.1 though maybe I should have tried it on 7 first.
a simple log off and back on works just as well as starting and stopping the explorer service that's what crashed my win8.1.
however this did achieve what I wanted thanks
