    Can I put Web Site Shortcuts in the Task Bar?


    Can I put Web Site 'Shortcuts' in the Task Bar

    If so, how would I do this?

    I've got a Tile with a Favourite Web Site

    I've also got it 'Book Marked' in Favourites

    But since I visit this Site such a lot, it would be very handy to get to it from the 'Task Bar'

    Right click on the task bar, click Toolbars, click Links so it gets checked. That will put the links toolbar to the far right, next to the notification area. Drag the tool bar separator to the left to open the links toolbar. Right click on the links toolbar and click on open folder. Any website you drag and drop onto the links toolbar or into that folder will get pinned to the links toolbar.

    Here's another way to make an individual one:

    First, obtain an icon of the web site in icon (.ico) format and store it somewhere permanently, (you can Google to get the image and convert it to .ico)
    Then, right click on your Desktop and choose New►Shortcut, type explorer then a space in the dialog, copy the web site url and paste it into the rest of the dialog and click Next, name it what you wish and click Finish.
    Right click on the new Shortcut and choose Properties►Change Icon, in the next window click Browse and navigate to the icon you stored on your PC, select it, click OK then Apply and OK.
    Now, drag that onto your Taskbar. You can delete the desktop shortcut if you wish.
