    Pinning programs to taskbar


    Since Win7 does not seem to have the 'All Programs', it is a little clumsy to e.g. pin programs to the taskbar. Right now I do it via the program files. Is there an easier way??

    Yes, open start menu, and type the name of the program you want. Right-click it, select advanced, and pin to taskbar.
