How to get Revouninstaller shortcut icon to attach to taskbar?

Somehow, as usual, I deleted all the shortcuts that I had on my taskbar. In the process or reinstalling the shortcuts, the Revouninstaller shortcut icon just wouldn't attach to the taskbar. There was no pin to taskbar in the content menu.?

Hi,

Are you able to drag it onto the Task Bar?

Regards,

No. It just won't go in.

Rename the shortcut to just plain old "Revo", then drag it or run it and pin it. Win 7 doesn't like the word "uninstaller" in a task bar shortcut.

Crazy, who would have thought of that?

Even though I changed the name to Revo, it wouldn't install into the taskbar. But I monkied around a bit more and finally got it to install.

Thanks.
