Our domain has some shortcuts provided to the users on their desktop. It has it's own picture and everything for the icon. With programs and shortcuts etc you can pin it to the taskbar. But if you try pinning a Internet URL shortcut to the taskbar it doesn't show up.

Is there a way I can make it so I can show up there? Because it doesn't do it by default.

I do have auto combine of programs etc off. (Always hated that)

Thanks

If you create the shorctut so that it's actually for the browser with the URL just being a value then you will be able to Pin the shorctut to taskbar.

e.g. "C:\Program Files (x86)\Internet Explorer\iexplore.exe" http://www.google.com

This capability already exists within IE9 on a Windows 7 machine, though.  Is it possible to upgrade to IE9 on your domain?
