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.

Bug fixed: crash of the shell location dialog.

 Allan | 30 Aug 12 Guest 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.

 RossN | 30 Aug 12 Guest Crashes on me.Win 8 CP 64-bit. Tried dragging a small .rtf file into the file pane.

 Sergey | 30 Aug 12 Comments: 481 RossNI have not tested it with CP. Its a bit outdated.AllanI reproduced your issue with win7 x86. Let me look inside the problem. I will release fix ASAP.

 Sergey | 24 Jan 13 Comments: 481 TaskbarPinner.exe d:\taskbar the FOLDER taskbar is added to the taskbar and NOT all files in the folder.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.Hello, i try to use this as script. Script is working well...but everytime i log in ALL items are created again so all shortcuts are now duplicated. Is there a fix for this?Can you post here an example of your script?

 Sergey | 29 Jan 13 Comments: 481 Mvd, fixed.

 Mvd | 29 Jan 13 Guest Hi Sergey, both issues are fixed?Is there a new version for download available?Thx

 Mvd | 29 Jan 13 Guest 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

 Sergey | 30 Jan 13 Comments: 481 MvdI can't resolve the following issue:IE is added to my taskbar (windows 8 )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

 Mvd | 31 Jan 13 Guest Hi Sergey, thx for the answers. Is the "new" version with scripting possiblity available for download?Thx

 WU | 31 Jan 13 Guest 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".

 Sergey | 31 Jan 13 Comments: 481 Mvd, not yet available. I am working on itWU, thank you, fixed both issues.

 mvd | 05 Feb 13 Guest Hi Sergey,thx, script is working.1 questionIs 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)

 Sergey | 05 Feb 13 Comments: 481 With PinTo8?I though i already fixed the duplicates

 PinHound | 21 May 13 Guest 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.

 theregent | 04 Jun 13 Guest Hi, excellent piece of work but my Win 7 runs 32-bit. any solution for this issue?thanks and keep on with your work

 Supostat | 18 Jun 13 Guest I was looking for method to pin batch file at taskbar. This soft didn't help me.Just puting file to c:\Users\%USERNAME%\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Quick Launch\User Pinned\TaskBar\ wouldn't help.P.S. Fortunately it CAN pin link to batch file, but I can't change icon for it.((

 albi | 05 Jul 13 Guest Great tool! Is it possible to ignore error? When something is already pinned I get error popup. Can I remove that popup?

 balluc | 08 Aug 13 Guest I have same problem... Already Pinned .. but I can't see it on the taskbar... how can we fix this ?

 kat | 09 Oct 13 Guest I pinned a dropbox folder but when I restarted, the folder disappeared from my taskbar. When I retried to pin, it says the folder is already pinned. How do I fix this?

 davee | 17 Oct 13 Guest I've used this in a batch script to pin Firefox to the taskbar:TaskbarPinner.exe "p:\win7\Mozilla\Mozilla Firefox.lnk"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...

 Sergey | 17 Oct 13 Comments: 481 Taskbar Pinner was not designed to unpin anything. I am sorry :(

 Arturo | 18 Oct 13 Guest Your work looks very good. I plan to try the Taskbar Pinner. I suggest that you add year to date field on your download page.All the best to you.

 davee | 18 Oct 13 Guest OK, fair enough. Thanks for the reply!

 scrumdiddillyumptiousuperdupercompletewonka | 30 Oct 13 Guest for one of the most annoying issues of windows 7 in not being able to pin folders any more, this is the easiest and best solution I have found - thanks!
