Yes, Mr. and Mrs. Geek, you’re right, you don’t need no stinkin’ software to pin folders and files to the Windows Taskbar. But EB and TC are the easy going, do it the easiest way possible kind of folks; yes sir or ma’am, we’s the laidback-sippin’ mint juleps type, lazin’ under the old cypress tree, dozin’ off in our straw hats, kind of folks. If there’s an easier way to do something, well you can bet your suspenders we’re going to find it. So don’t be a writin’ us tellin’ us we’s a don’t know what we’re doin’ cuz you don’t need no stinkin’ software to pin stuff to the Windows 7 or Windows 8 taskbar, cuz we already knows this, we tells ya, we’s just the lazy types, ok?

You all know how to pin a program to the taskbar in Windows 7 and Windows 8, right? Just right-click the program’s shortcut and choose “Pin to taskbar”. Duh! It doesn’t get any easier than that does it? But what if you want to pin an image, a file, a document, a folder, a library, a favorite, etc. to your taskbar. What do you do then? (Quiet! Quiet! You geeks…don’t be giving these folks some complicated commands to run, theys like us, laidback easy goin’ folks!)

You download Taskbar Pinner that’s what you do. It comes in a zip file (the zip contains 32bit and 64bit programs). Just unzip it and choose 32-bit or 64-bit and run the application. The hardest part of using this nifty program is playing “Find the real download link on the developer’s site”. This has to be the biggest maze of malware-laden, diversionary, download buttons we’ve ever seen, and if the program weren’t so darned handy, we’d tell the developer to go fly a kite. Instead, at the end of this rib-tickling article, we’ve downloaded the program (for Windows 7 and Windows 8) and uploaded them on our servers where you can download them directly from us, no mazes, no malware, and no questions asked. So don’t blame us if you click the wrong button, we’re tellin’ you right now — don’t click no stinkin’ buttons, click the links that say DOWNLOAD TASKBAR PINNER FOR WINDOWS 7 HERE or DOWNLOAD FOR WINDOWS 8 HERE. If you get Conduit, WebCake, AskToolbar, Smilebox or some other malware toolbar or program, it’s cuz you don’t listen to yer kinfolk, EB and TC! So listen up! Take heed! We’s a warned you…
