You can also do that by bringing out the Start menu>Control Panel menu and right clicking on any item to create a new shortcut on the desktop you can pin to the taskbar. The download or instruction for manual creation here however is for the one specific item making things easier for those not unaware of these two alternates.

Night Hawk,

I'm not sure what you mean. You can create a shortcut from the Control Panel easily, but there is no option to pin it, or to pin it separately other than in the CP jump list.

You would need to drag the icon onto the taskbar or into the folder created for an addon toolbar. That's how that goes when creating shortcut on the spot with a right click.

You end up at a disadvantage for the fast shortcut using that method. For the Display shortcut I simply was able to drag that directly onto RocketDock but no go for the taskbar or Start menu. That was from a right click on Start>CP>Display item and selecting the create shortcut option.

You get a shortcut real quickly but.... no options to pin!

Ah, ok. Thank you for clarifying that. I was just a bit lost on what you meant.

no problem!

Often you can simply right click to create or right click to copy items on the Start menu or found in the branches for things like the Control Panel and paste them on the desktop.

These shortcuts will lack the options to pin them to the taskbar however and are either dragged directly onto an addon bar like RocketDock or into the folder used for a taskbar new toolbar option. Quick Launch - Enable or Disable

With the two methods for the User Account icon here the option for pinning is the advantage. That has the advantage.
