I have changed to windows 7 and now find it impossible to pin a desktop shortcut to my taskbar ..any solutions ...Alan
Don't pin the desktop shortcut - pin the actual program or file.
Use the Start Menu, find the program there with the search bar or All Programs (if it isnt already showing the recent program list) and then choose Pin to Taskbar.
I think i know what you're saying alanpigott, though it looks like no-one else does.
you want to pin the desktop to the task bar so that you can drag files to it. I'm also trying to find out. Every forum respondant misses the point too
