Windows 7: Create icon to url on taskbar

13 Jul 2012   #11

Windows 7 Home Premium
the easiest way to add a URL to taskbar (Windows7)

I just left-drag the Internet Explorer URL's icon (just to the left of the address) in one smooth move directly to the taskbar. That Pins it to the Taskbar. You can also left-drag to the Desktop if that is your desired destination. I was able to do the latter all the way back to Windows 95 and now Windows 7 allows that action to Pin to the Taskbar.
