Windows 7 Taskbar Items Pinner makes it easy to pin special folders

Pinning programs, folders, and even frequently used documents to your Windows 7 taskbar can be a real time-saver. Certain folders, however, aren't so easy to add -- especially if you want them right on the taskbar and not buried in the Explorer jump list.

Windows 7 Taskbar Items Pinner makes pinning everything from your downloads folder to the control panel to network connections as easy as ticking a checkbox. Just download Pinner from Door2Windows, extract the files, and right-click the executable to run it as Administrator. The app also allows you to unpin existing items, and you can even integrate Pinner into your context menu if you like.

If you want to add Control Panel to your taskbar, we still recommend using the method we showed you -- pinning it with Pinner won't give you a jump list to utilize.
