Taskbar Pinner

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!

Latest version of Taskbar Pinner is 2.0. Windows 8 users, please switch to Pin to 8 application.
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 "pathtodesiredlocation"

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.
