Hello all :huh:

I'm loving the new taskbar in Win7. It really saves me a lot of time.

However, I have an application I wrote for managing my open HJT Topics.
But for some reason, it will not let me pin a shortcut to that item to the taskbar.

Any ideas?

Is the shortcut a standard one, or have you removed the arrow? If so, maybe:

Oh well, it was worth a shot I guess.

Standard icon for the program too? There was a hint something non-standard about an icon could upset pinning, but that was supposed to have been fixed for build 7100.

I have no idea if it's standard or not. Want the .ico file? Or are you going to have some fun with ResHack or Reflector?

Heh heh, turns out there's no need...

Re-name the shortcut "Malware Workflow Tool" - nothing with the string "help" in the shortcut name will pin.

I removed the URL since there is no need for the public to have access to the tool. If someone wants it, PM Billy for instructions on how to download.
