Control Panel - Pin to Taskbar

Computer is a little different though,

Computer - Pin to Taskbar

I have both pinned to my taskbar.
Don't know what I am doing wrong. I follow the instructions for pinning computer and when I unzip the file and pin it to the taskbar I get and icon for libraries. Tried 4 times and got the same results. Never computer.
Lets try a different way, Save the unzipped folder with the Computer Icon in your Documents folder, inside the folder just right click on the icon and choose "Pin to taskbar".

Also, did you do step 1 of the tutorial as well?
