    Pin shortcut to Sound to taskbar


    I have a shortcut to ControlPanel/Sound: %windir%\system32\mmsys.cpl which I'd like to pin to the taskbar. The open window has no pin option. I tried dragging mmsys.cpl to the tasbar, which created a pinned icon but the icon brings up the Default programs window, not sound. Any way of doing that?

    Hello tcebob, :)

    If you like, you could add Quick Launch to the taskbar, and move this shortcut into Quick Launch.

    I already have 2 toolbars (Programs & System) containing most programs that I might possibly use. Sorta like the Programs icon in the Start Menu but a lot easier to navigate. And the Sound shortcut is in there. I was hoping to add the sound icon to the taskbar.

    If you like, you could also right click on the default Volume icon on the taskbar and click on "Playback devices", it'll open the same thing.

    You could also create a desktop shortcut with explorer.exe prefix and a space, change the icon then drag that to the taskbar.

    Example:
    explorer.exe %windir%\system32\mmsys.cpl

    Explorer.exe did the trick. My problem is solved.
