Hey, I am proud to introduce the results of my hard work with Mr. Gaurav Kale. It is Taskbar Pinner - the universal pinner software for your taskbar!

This is most unique software from all taskbar pinners in the world. Just check the list of features! With our Taskbar Pinner you will able:
• to pin ANY file regardless of its type;
• to pin ANY folder;
• to pin drive;
• to pin Control Panel items, all them including some hidden like God Mode/All Tasks, Network Connections;
• to pin Libraries;
• to pin Shell Objects like Run command, "Show Desktop", Window Switcher;
• to pin any drive,all folders and all files via Explorer Context Menu;
• to pin any folders or files with drag and drop. Drop them on application window.
• to pin any folders or files via command line:
taskbarpinner.exe "path\to\desired\location"

Note this is first pinning tool which works in Windows 7 regardless of UI language! As you may know, all of existing tools fails with non-English language of user interface. More than that, it's the only pinning tool I think that can pin just about ANYthing.

If you pin a *.website file to taskbar, you will able to set a custom icon for it.

Let me show you how its in action. I will show you Windows 8, ok? For Windows 7 all bits are the same.

2.0
• improved user folders' location detection in case when folder redirection is enabled via Group Policy
• fixed crash of app when it was started from a network share
• fixed the file/folder pinning issue when the target file is located on a network share.

v1.1
• Windows 8 is not supported anymore. Please use the Pin to 8 software instead.
• New modern "Open a folder" dialog for folder pinning.
• Bug fixed: wrong check if item was already pinned.

Bug fixed: crash when the slash was the last character in the command line.
Bug fixed: crash of the shell location dialog.
v1.0

Not working for me on Win7 Home Premium 64 bit. Created a shortcut to folder on D (non-system) partition on single hard drive. When I click on the shortcut, I get an error message stating "The item "[folder].exe" that this shortcut refers to has been changed or moved, so this shortcut will no longer work properly. Do you want to delete this shortcut?" Note that I selected a folder, not an .exe program file. Is there a solution. This would be very useful if it worked.

But for what?
You are able to change it with explorer. Shift+Right click on pinned icon and select properties. Then log off and log on.

Thanks!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Many essential programs and file folders have not a "Pin to taskbar."

WARNING
It will (most times) download an unauthorised version of the software - that isn't the problem. It also downloads things you didn't ask for - and it doesn't bother to tell you. Most of these "extras" are very nasty. And to a virus checker it looks as though you voluntarily downloded the stuff.
Be warned!!!!

26. Sergey

Right, it will pin just folder, not whole folder content. This is by design.

Sorry, msi shortcuts are not supported.

That is true. I have no idea how to process them at this moment.

Hi Sergey,
now when starting taskbar-pinner script on Windows 8 "this application requires windows 7".
but.. "pin to 8" can not be used as a script like "taskbar pinner".

What will be the right working combination of script-possiblity and working on windows 8, and also with both fixes you made?

Thx

I can't resolve the following issue:

But when start IE there is second IE-icon in my Taskbar for the opened website. how can i fix this?

This is windows behavior, I have no idea how to defeat it. Try to pin executable file (iexplore.exe) instead of LNK file.
I will add cmd line parameters to "pin to 8".
like
"pinto8.exe /t file" - pin to taskbar
"pinto8.exe /s file" - pin to start screen

FYI: I downloaded Taskbar Pinner and unzipped it (by the way there is a typo in the Windows x64 folder). I'm using Windows 7 Ultimate x64, and the program file in the "Widnows x64" [sic] folder produces the error message "Please use executable file from Windows x64 folder".

Hi Sergey,

Is there a possibility for a check when there is a shortcut already, that specific item will be skipped? (when running for a second time, there will be duplicate items)

42. Sergey

Hi

First off I'd like to say this looks like a really useful tool. Secondly I have a question regarding running this from a script - is it possible to unpin as well as pin icons? And if so what is the variable to do this?

Many thanks for your hard work.

I've used this in a batch script to pin Firefox to the taskbar:

It works perfectly and has applied itself for ~100 users. However, I want to reverse this operation. Can that be done with TaskbarPinner.exe? Can it be used to *unpin*?

The only workaround I have is to destroy ALL pinned app shortcuts, but that's not what I want...

53. Sergey

Taskbar Pinner was not designed to unpin anything. I am sorry :(

If you can make the program also do an unpin with a command-line version, I for one would be happy to pay for your program
