Taskbar Shortcut - More than 10 possible?


Does anyone know if there is a way to have more than 10 taskbar shortcuts (Windows Key + Number)? Obviously there are only 10 numbers but perhaps another 10 with the number keypad?

Hello HKS, and welcome to Seven Forums.

Sorry, but no. However, you can assign your own keyboard shortcuts to them though to use instead. You would right click on the pinned taskbar icon, then right click on the program in the jumplist and click on properties to add them using the steps in the tutorial below.
