Pin Applications to Windows 7 Taskbar RRS feed

  • Question

  • I want to make a way to automate pin my favorite applications to taskbar.

    I found a solution in this page:

    http://social.technet.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/winserverGP/thread/d172b4de-be7c-4149-8958-bebfe042ade1/

    1- copy this folder: 

    %APPDATA%\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Quick Launch\User Pinned\TaskBar

    2- Import this registry:

    [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Taskband]

    when i make that, i save my pinned applications, but when i try to restore it (by copying back the folder and export the registry), i found nothing happen to taskbar (the application don't pin), until I PIN OR UNPIN APPLICATION MANUALLY TO REFRESH THE TASKBAR.
    Note: I donn know much in programming, so i want to make it just simple by copying folder and registry.
    What i want, is there is a way to refresh the taskbar items to make this way work ???????
    Thanks in advance
