Any other way to Pin office icons to Windows 8 x64 taskbar besides scripts


  • Hi,

    Does anyone know another way to pin taskbar icons, specifically office icons to a Windows 8 x64 taskbar, we are using mdt 2012 update 1 to deploy windows 8, I know there are scripts out there that can do this, but is their any other way, I tried editing the unattend.xml and set the copyprofile=true and the DoNotCleanTaskBarIcons=true but that does nothing, I did this both on the sysprep and capture TS and the Deploy TS. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

  • Hi,

    If Office is installed in your reference image you can use the OobeSystem | Microsoft-Windows-Shell-Setup\TaskBarLinks in your unattend.xml

  • Do you happen to know by chance what the path for adding Office 2013 would be?
