Windows 7: How Many Taskbar Pins Do You Have?

31 Jan 2011   #11


1. Windows Live Messenger. Don't know why as I never use it now. Though it just made sense as when it's open it pins itself to that area. Other than that I prefer keeping the task bar clean. I still have taskbar items showing the name as I prefer it to just having icons.
