Pin to Taskbar/Start

Postby John » Fri Dec 04, 2015 8:43 am

I use a batch file to launch BR so I don't have to update my shortcuts everytime I update BR. I use a custom icon for my application. I imagine many of you do the same thing. Today I finally figured out how to allow my application to be pinned to the Taskbar or Start in windows 10 (should work in 7 or 8 also). Thanks to this article: https://superuser.com/questions/100249/how-to-pin-either-a-shortcut-or-a-batch-file-to-the-new-windows-7-8-and-10-task/193255#193255.

Simply put my shortcut target was

Code: Select all

"C:\Program Files (x86)\ACS 5\ACS 5.cmd"
but I changed it to

Code: Select all

cmd.exe /C "C:\Program Files (x86)\ACS 5\ACS 5.cmd"
and now the shortcut is pin-able. :mrgreen:

Let me know if this helps you.
