    If I use the desktop toolbar and move the icon to the top of the list first, then unlock the toolbar and slide it until the icon shows, then relock the toolbar, it sticks, and you only have to click once to open the shortcut. This is my trick to pin unpinnable things. Create a shortcut to desktop, then use toolbar. I call it Redneck Pinning(you just don't use duct tape). I just have to work on the sizing of the ico.

    Try this:

    when creating the shortcut, add explorer then a space before the URL then you should be able to pin it to the task bar.

    Only thing is, it may not retain the 'path' after a reboot. Give it shot to see if it does or not.

    Here's a better screen shot using large icons and a darker background. Notice I made the transparent parts light blue.

    Only IE for me. Maybe because it was created for IE it opens that, but knowing you, you have FF as default, so it opens that too.

    Pin IE sites to taskbar


    Edit: @Brink and @Kari does this look like a possible tutorial/video from you or other members? Actually Edwin and I wanted to use a custom icon but that's not goin to work, and it was hard to find out how to do this on Win10. Or am I on the late show and there is already one?

    Haaaa! I found out how to pin a site to the taskbar using IE(but can't use the custom icon, it has to be the favicon).
    When you are on the site home page, press Alt+T then down to Add site to apps and click. then go to start menu right click and pin to start!
