Search bar on taskbar?

Does anyone know if it's possible to pin the Windows search/run bar to the taskbar?

I actually wanted the same thing. I tried to drag, but did not work. I used the right click, but did not work. I even tried to research help and support. As far as I know there is no way. But in any event, Happy Thanksgiving

Something I really want as well but haven't found a way.

The address toolbar acts as sort of a run command box.

Would be a cool idea. Though it works to just hit the windows key then start typing. Thats really easy.

Hello,

It's not the same thing, but you can pin this search shortcut to the taskbar to make doing searches a little easier.

Hope this helps some,

Thanks everyone for your suggestions. Too bad this doesn't appear to be an option at the moment. I miss the little search box in the task bar that was available in Windows Search 4 for XP.
