Windows 7: I want to get Chrome, FireFox, and my e-mail program onto the taskbar.

Windows 7 32bit Professional
I want to get Chrome, FireFox, and my e-mail program onto the taskbar.

I want to get Chrome, FireFox, and my e-mail program onto the taskbar. I have the arrows removed from the shortcuts. They all show in my quick launch, but none of them will move to the taskbar. I am using Win 7 Pro. On the other computer with Win 7 Home Premium, it works fine.

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 (ex: in Program Files folder), and click on Pin to Taskbar to do so?

Hope this helps,
