How do I pin 'PHOTOS' to taskbar?

Running windows 8 pro.
I downgraded from windows 10 back to 8 because I can no longer tolerate the Automatic Updates.
I am very happy with 8 but I would like to see an icon in my taskbar for any given photo I look at like in windows 10.
Now, the way its set up, when I open a photo, it takes me to the app, and when I treck back to desktop, there is no icon in the taskbar to quickly pull the photo back up like in 10.

Is there a specific way to achieve this? When I right-click the PHOTOS app, it DOES NOT give me an option to 'pin to taskbar'. only 'unpin from start' or 'uninstall'
Thanks

Hello John, :)

You should see a "Pin to taskbar" option like below when you right click on the Photos app. You might see if you may be able to use any one of the other options below to "Pin to taskbar".
