Pinning apps on the Taskbar - for all users RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi

    I'm making an image of windows 10 and office 2016.

    i want that all the users will have the same icons on the taskbar.

    i copied all the shortcuts to this folder:

    C:\Users\defult\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Quick Launch\User Pinned\TaskBar

    but when i log on with a new profile, i don't get the pinned icons...

    why?

    Thanks

  • Hello

    Can you try this 

    Set objShell = CreateObject("Shell.Application") 
    Set objFolder = objShell.Namespace("C:\") 
    Set objApp = objFolder.ParseName("Notepad.lnk") 
    For Each verb in objApp.Verbs() 
    If verb.Name = "Pin to Tas&kbar" Then verb.DoIt 
    Next
    Set objShell = CreateObject("Shell.Application") 
    Set objFolder = objShell.Namespace("C:\") 
    Set objApp = objFolder.ParseName("Media Center.lnk") 
    For Each verb in objApp.Verbs() 
    If verb.Name = "Pin to Tas&kbar" Then verb.DoIt 
    Next

    Add as many apps as you want. Just make a shortcut first.
    Then you will have to setup an "Active Setup" for each new user that logs on
