|Guest||Great Work! A commadline option to pin link would be perfect for IT admins!!!|
|Guest||Yeah a cmd line option would be great for pinning to Start screen. Taskbar Pinner for Windows 7 has it.|
|Guest||Still cannot pin Steam game (shortcut) to homescreen... i don't understand why because they are URL and you can pin URL shortcut :( can you add that feature soon ?! it would be amazing :d no need to go to desktop or steam to launch a game !|
|Guest||A dream come true. Windows 8 suddenly makes sense. Thank you.|
|Guest||Does not work on any version of Windows 8 I try. I also tried the old version. Please update.|

Can you share more details?
What is your OS language?
What you have tried to Pin? Please tell the full path of file.
Where you tried to Pin: Start screen or taskbar?
|Guest||Pin to 8 184.108.40.206 can not run in Win8 OS<Chinese (Simplified)>,but 220.127.116.11 run normal|

|Guest||it doesn't work i tried to pin computer on my task bar but it crash|
|Guest||Hello, what is the commandline for this tool? Is there an option to run this every logon without having duplicate items?|
Thx for the good work!
|Sergey |24 Jan|
|Comments: 369||There is no command line for this tool.|
The command line was "dumbed down" while it grows up from "taskbar pinner" to currect implementation

|Guest||Is it possible to add "windows\fonts" fonts folder to the taskbar in Windows 8?|
|No Excel support|07 Feb|
|Guest||I tried to pin a special excel file I use daily to the Taskbar, using a custom icon. It doesn't work. The Win 7 version of this worked flawlessly, until you added a routine that checks to see if it is being used on 7 or 8. Losers.|

Look for the troubles at your side.
|Guest||win8 language polish pin don;t work well|
|Guest||Windows 8 with german language. I try to pin a program from my nas with unc path. The result is a shortcut to my local temp folder. Then I tried with a local program, but with the same result. All pinned shortcuts go to my temp folder. And yes, I use the last version for win8.|
Thx for your help

|Comments: 369||Hello Tom|
I very sorry about this issue.
I will try to resolve it as soon as I reproduce the bug.
|Guest||Hi. It would be nice to have an option to change display name of the pinned items. Some applications insist on having generic executable names like "launcher.exe" so being able to change the name of the Start Screen shortcut would be nice.|
For anyone willing to so this as long as a direct rename option has not been included : once you added your shortcut you can right click it and you'll have an option to "open the file location", from there you can simply rename the file the old way. It works great for normal files, didn't test for special folders or libraries.
|Guest||I have the same problem with my German Windows 8 version.|
All Icons link to my C:\Temp folder where i find files like "Run....exe" or "All Tasks.exe". The filesize is always 0.
I should mention though, that i set my temp path variable to "c:\temp".
|Guest||Hi Jojo, I'm sure that the temp variable isn't the fault. I did the same like you. But I switched it back to the default folder with no success. Always the same issues. I've a win7 + 8 pc with the same problems. The only solution is to copy the real path to the .exe file and edit the wrong link in the taskbar (shift+right mouse button). You can copy the path during the search dialog from pinto8. Quick and dirty but it works.|
|Guest||Thank you Sergey! It's working great for me. Microsoft should hire you since apparently they aren't smart enough to figure this out for themselves.|
|Guest||OK, my last post was a mistake. Now I had a little bit time to check the conditions more exactly. The Pinto8 and also Taskbarpinner works only correct if the user temp variable set to "C:\Users\%username%\AppData\Local\Temp". All other variations are going wrong. The system temp variable is no matter.|
|Guest||I have to say thank you very much for this simple portable program|
that I was hoping for to just Pin a folder to the Taskbar. Thank you
again and thanks for creating it
