I don't understand that why you have to use all the tricks to perform the same in windows 7. Windows 7 have already a feature that enables the item to the taskbar with the help of the drag and drop method. Just drag the item that you want to pin to taskbar and drop it on the taskbar, it will automatically add it to the same. This happens in the Mac operating system. It was not available in the previous version of the Windows. So Enjoy it with the simple drag and drop. Bye
