file shortcut to taskbar
Posted 21 September 2012 - 04:03 AM
I want to have a permanent shortcut of an xlsx file at the right of the taskbar
I dont want to click on the excel shortcut and choose the file, I want a direct shortcut to the file at that position
Is it possible?

but you can make shortcut, put it to quick launch bar
then right click on taskbar and choose Unlock taskbar, now you can see borders of quick launch
then right click in empty space of quick launch bar, click on View -> Large icons (set size of icons to be near big as taskbar ones)
good thing with quick launch is that you can make multiple separate bars and place them to right or left of taskbar
you can also center your icons on taskbar by using quick launch to be like on mac os

There's an excellent program called Taskbar Pinner http://winaero.com/c...omment.news.108 , that out very lovely "xpclient" worked on. It'll help you out.
it seems to do what I need
how does it work actually? does it write some registry key or something?
I would like to know the procedure, in order to do it without having to install the program

can you explain the steps of the procedure please? didnt get it
Right Click > New > Shortcut.
Paste the rundll32 cmd as the 'Item Location' (including the full path to your xlsx).
Windows thinks the shortcut is to Rundll32.exe and doesn't group it with other excel file types so that it can be placed in the taskbar and open your file directly.
