    Hi all.

    Is there any way I can add a specific web page/URL to the IE pin list in
    Windows 7?
    It seems like the only way at the moment is to wait for items to
    randomly appear in the "Frequent" list then pin them from there.

    Annoyingly this mostly works, but some items just don't appear and the
    current list largely consists of pages from a webapp I use...

    Thanks.

    Oh yeah...
    I hadn't thought of that :p

    I'm used to explorer <6.1 refusing drops on the buttons so didn't think
    to try that.

    For reference, you can drag from anywhere that uses an OLE file source
    so the IE address bar icon, and files in explorer.

    (It also allows me to pin random files to it....)

    Thanks
