Windows 7: Pinning, etc.

Pinning, etc.

according to the windows 7 booklet, right clicking any program should show "Pin to taskbar". In my case, I just see the standard window options:delete,send to, etc. with no mention of pin at all. I have had nothing but problems since downloading 7 several days ago. eg: "backup" fails to complete; Windows repair disc will not open, I have tried installing the windows 7 installation disc following the instructions exactly, this will not open either. Has anyone any suggestions?

OK, wjt, you have a couple of different questions here.

First, on pinning. Check out http://www.sevenforums.com/tutorials...ram-links.html

Second, install problems. Try re-burning the DVD at the slowest speed. If you downloaded the student version (non-".iso") check here on how to make a bootable version. Make bootable iso from student d/l

Hope this helps.

Some icons won't pin, for example windows update doesn't have an option.

Hello WJT,

Can you give us some specific programs that do not have the "Pin to" option? As Frostmourne posted, some do not have this option and will require a workaround like the one below. We may be able to help if we knew what specific one you wanted to pin.
