Pinning a url icon to the taskbar

In prior versions of windows I was able to drag and drop an icon of an internet URL onto the task bar so that I was able to only click one icon to get to a spacific web site. I dont seem to be able to accomplish this in Win 7. Am I missing something??
How can I do this.
Thank

Dean

Go to the site in question. Drag the icon of the site to task bar. It appears when you right click IE icon.

Hello Dean,

You can pin the URL from within the right click jump list of the IE taskbar icon like in step 5 of OPTION ONE in the tutorial below.
