Hello Guys,
Back then the way there was a way to add shortcuts to the task bar
$shell = new-object -com "Shell.Application"  
$folder = $shell.Namespace('C:\Windows')    
$item = $folder.Parsename('Calc.exe')
$verb = $item.Verbs() | ? {$_.Name -eq 'Pin to Tas&kbar'}
if ($verb) {$verb.DoIt()}

Open in new window

but it seems that has changed, in the structure for Windows 10, does anybody know the new methods?
