    Will 'Documents' pin to taskbar in 10?


    Wonder if this will work in 10?

    Configure Shortcut thusly:
    ====================================
    Target: "C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office 15\root\office15\WINWORD.EXE" C:
    \Users\Pam\Documents\PHONE.DOC

    Start In: "C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office 15\root\office15"
    ==================================
    Drag/pin to the Taskbar??? Click to open???

    Hello windunce,

    It should. If you like, you can also use Quick Launch to add them to as well.

    The good...Pin ,docs, txt, pics etc to taskbar YEAH!
    The bad...QL is soooooo small and such a precious piece of desktop real estate
    The ugly...upgrading from the 10 DVD onto a Genuine Activated OS, STILL prompts for keys...sigh.

    Will lay low for a few weeks and see what tricks, tips and tidbits arise to squelch that nasty bug.

    Thanks for your efforts and dedication, it's greatly appreciated.

    Actually QL could be left as a toolbar with a menu that expands open instead of having icons stretched across your taskbar. This would give more space on the taskbar for whatever else you may like to pin to it.
