Personally, I kinda like the new start screen in Windows 8/8.1... where I don't particularly care for it is in Server 2012/R2.

I don't know how difficult this is, or if it's possible, but "pin to taskbar" would be a fabulous addition to this already great utility. :)

This is not a feature that has anything to do with the application really.
I'm guessing you can't pin it to the taskbar because the application executable is located on a network drive.
Try placing the executable locally and you'll see it will work.

Report back please :)

Hi Chris, it's on my D drive, so it's local.

I just did a quick search (I cannot bring myself to use "Bing" as a verb...) and it seems that an .hta cannot be pinned to the taskbar.

A workaround is to drag it from the File Explorer window to the taskbar, which creates a shortcut... and pins the shortcut to the taskbar instead. :)__

Ah I see. Another workaround: Right click the executable and select "Pin to taskbar" instead of right clicking the icon when the app is already running ;)
