What I want to do is very simple: have an icon for a URL pinned to the taskbar separate from the browser icon that is already there. But no matter what I do, when I try to drag a shortcut with a URL, it won't allow it. When I right-click the URL shortcut, the menu says it is already pinned (because it is joined to the browser icon that is already there).

This should be simple to do, yet I can't figure it out. What am I missing?

You can move it to 'quick launch' if you have that set up.
