Pin Web site to taskbar

Can someone tell me how to pin a web site to the task bar in Windows 7 ? I can do it with software, excel, word, etc. but with a web site after I open the web site I drag the icon down to the taskbar like I used to do with Vista but with W7 it brings up a box of options that I dont have a clue what to do with. It apparently doesnt work the same was as with Vista

Hi Cowbell! Welcome to SevenForums! You cannot pin Documents, Web Pages etc. onto the task bar so that they have their own icon. They will go to the program that opens them. (e.g. .DOC files will be on Microsoft Word) So if you right click your default Internet Browser on the task bar it should be there under "Pinned"

Thanks,
