Tim,

It appears that you may need to do a repair install then.

Can't pin multiple instances of Thunderbird

My wife and I are both using Thunderbird and each have our own profile. I have two Thunderbird shortcuts on the desktop, one for each of us, with the appropriate command line arguments to bring up our respective profiles. I can only get one icon to pin to the taskbar, however.

How can I get both icons pinned to the taskbar?

Hello Carl, and welcome to Seven Forums.

Since they are the same program, that would be why you are not able to pin both to the taskbar using the normal Pin to taskbar context menu option.

If you like, you could enable Quick Launch as a workaround, then be able to add both Thunderbird shortcuts inside Quick Launch to have them on the taskbar though.

Hope this helps,
Shawn

Thanks!

Shawn, Thanks for the tip. It worked great. By moving the QuickLaunch bar to the left side and selecting large icons I get just what I was looking for.

Hello Ryan, and welcome to Seven Forums.

Are you able to right click on those program's shortcuts (ex: in the Start Menu) or exe files, and click on* Pin to Taskbar* to do so?

When I right click on any of them, there is no option for "Pin to Taskbar". Nothing on my desktop has that option or the option to Pin to Quick Start. I may have used one of the Tweak programs to remove the shortcut arrows, but I am not sure which it was yet.

Hello Ryan,

Since you are missing the "Pin to taskbar" option, then download and merge the lnk (LNK) option in the tutorial below to restore the IsShortcut registry key entry for shortcuts to see if that will help restore the "Pin to taskbar" option afterwards.
