Also, any ideas on how to pin a folder or folder shortcut to the taskbar?

Hi Edwin, when you click on the the taskbar icon per your method, does it create another icon for the open version? For programs that can be pinned by the normal way, if I open them, a little bar appears below them showing there is an open version. If I open a document per your method, it creates a new icon on the taskbar tray and the icon looks different? Would be nice if I could get it to work like the other pinned icons... asking for a lot, right... I guess beggars can't be choosers at this point... :(

Is there a way to create a request for taskbar customization? Windows 10, 8, 7 ...etc were all so much nicer...

by the way, I found you can't change the icon picture after you rename the file back, but you can change the icon while it is still an .exe

is there anyway to get the shortcuts to show up on the bottom right, seems like middle and left are the only options I see?
For that you would need to create a custom Toolbar, and, for that you'd need an alternative Explorer shell.

Same as above.

Yeah, that is a side affect I forgot to mention! :rolleyes:
