Windows 7 has a feature that allows you to pin programs to the task bar. This is a handy feature since it eliminates the need for you to go into your Start menu or find the program's icon on the desktop each time you want to launch a program. Pinning a program on the task bar takes a moment to complete.
Launch the program that you want to be pinned to your task bar. The program's icon will appear on the taskbar.
Right-click on the program's icon on the task bar.
Choose "Pin this program to taskbar." The program is now pinned to the task bar.
