Windows 7: Can I pin a jpeg file to the Taskbar?

26 Apr 2011   #1

Windows 7 64-bit
Can I pin a jpeg file to the Taskbar?

Is it possible to pin a jpeg file to the task bar so that I can easily open it with a single click from wherever I am. It is possible to pin it to the jump list for some programs on my Taskbar (eg Calculator & Notepad) but not to others (eg Explorer). I can also pin it to the Start menu. However, trying to pin it directly to the Taskbar fails.

And the reason for all this? The jpeg is a picture of the 2011 calendar which I would like to be able to call up with a single click from wherever I am and whatever is on the screen at the time.

Any other way of doing this will, of course, be gratefully accepted. :)

What about using a Gadget for the calendar (like the built-in one) or the Outlook Overlay that puts the calendar on your desktop?

Several, including Windows 7 x64 Ultimate

You can add it to a folder, and then add that folder to the taskbar.

Right click on the taskbar. Choose "New Toolbar";

Choose "New Folder" I named this one "Calendar"

Now you can just place anything you want immediate access to in that folder.

The toolbar on your taskbar looks like this;

You can also change various properties if you wish.
