Windows 7: I WANT a duplicate Icon...How?

I WANT a duplicate Icon...How?

Can someone please tell me how to duplicate the Internet Explorer icon on teh task bar so that I have two.

The reason I want to do this is that I listen to the radio at work which creates a window that I minimize all day. BUT then the problem/frustration is that when I want to go onto the internet I have to right click and select Internet Explorer. I would much rather just click on a separate Internet Explorer shortcut button and have it open.

Is this possible?

Welcome to Seven Forums!
Click the tab where the radio is opened and drag it to the PC taskbar. It will pin there and it will open the same tab every time.

If this is what you mean it is not working....If I click on the Icon the 3 windows I am currently viewing show up I can't click and drag any of those ones anywhere.

I think I see my problem, the window that the "listen live" radio station leaves up is not one with a webpage and a logo that I can drag it is just a plain window that says I am listening live and I can close it or minimize it. Maybe I can't make it a shortcut with that.

Also if I try to Pin the Website from the radio station it just pin's it into the Internet Explorer list not as a button

I made a small sketch. See if you can drag the tab from the browser into the windows taskbar (in a free space). If you can't do it, please post the link of the radio, to exactly test it myself.

On the popup, click and drag the small icon on the left of the link. The small C95. Drag it on the taskbar. It should work now.
