Windows 7: Change file dropping behavior on taskbar?

Change file dropping behavior on taskbar?


I just found the registry tweak for opening the last used window/tab on the taskbar with a left click, Changing window selection behavior in the taskbar. I was wondering if it is possible to open a file instead of pinning it when dropping that file on a taskbar icon? I know about holding shift and dropping it on the icon, which is not a pain, but having it do it automatically would be great. I also know about the apps available to do this, but I would much prefer using the registry. Anyway, thanks for your time.
