Ok, it seems that if I want it to work like I want in my previous post, then you must keep the original windows explorer pinned to taskbar. If I unpin windows explorer, and have only "my computer" pinned, then the unlaunched icon turns into the launched icon.
But if I have both "windows explorer" and "my computer" pinned, then after clicking on the "my computer" icon, and new window ( and taskbar icon) is opened and the unlaunched "my computer" icon remains.

It would be better to have only the "my computer" icon, but if its the only way to get it working like that, then its fine...

Yeah, the pinned Computer shortcut will also need to remain to the right of the default My Computer (libraries) one for it to continue doing that as well. A strange quirk, but it does work.

Re: Windows 7 - Taskbar - Pin or Unpin a Folder sevenforums tip

Hi,

I cannot get this tip to work for me. What's extra frustrating is I have had difficulties with this before but have, somehow, got it to work. Not this time though.

As can be seen in the pic the title (Tools) shows but not the icon and the title is not clickable. Otherwise everything's just fine.

Please help, this is so frustrating:/
Thanks.

Hello Goran,

Which option did you use in the tutorial on the first page?

If Option Two, then it looks like you need to pick up at step 4.
