Hello Graham,

Do you have Recent Programs and Recent Items turned on? You will need these on to pin it to the taskbar.

Hope this helps,

Strange. I'm not certain why you cannot pin it then. Have you already tried the manual method to see if you can pin that one?

Did you unblock the zip?

I know it wouldn't let me pin the flip3d icon to the taskbar when I tried the one from the quick launch folder
Appdata/roaming/microsoft/internet explorer/quicklaunch/switch between windows

but the zip one always lets me.

Graham,

The shortcut located at the path in the right image above will not be allowed to be pinned. Have you tried to see if the shortcut, if created manually, may be allowed to be pinned for you?

SUCCESS!
Thanks Brink.

The zip apparently did not work for me, but creating manually did. Went back in the thread and followed the manual instructions. (Incl. change icon.)
