    Would like to add a shortcut to Google (not chrome) to the windows 10 taskbar. It's in the start menu, albeit without the graphics, however it will not pin to the taskbar. How do I pin Google to the taskbar????

    HELP!! - Toshiba driver update for Toshiba Hotkey Driver - Error 0x800f0203

    I'm now running Windows 10 upgraded from Windows 7 & I have the same continuous problem with the update

    • Toshiba driver update for Toshiba Hotkey Driver - Error 0x800f0203

    I tried your Method 1 to fix it which said changes have been made to my computer & to try & update again which failed.. again & the same message above came up again. My laptop is secure as I run Norton 360, so what should I do next to try & fix this problem?
    My laptop is a Toshiba satellite L650.

    Thank you

    David

    how do I pin hotmail to taskbar

    Do you run it in a browser rather than on a client like the Mail app?

    If so then you can pin the browser. Once thats done you can pin any website to the top of the jump list.

    Using Edge I seem to be able to pin any program that I want to the taskbar except Hotmail. I am presently holding Hotmail in Favourites and while that works fine its just not cricket. !!! I want Hotmail on my Taskbar, its a matter of principle .
    Your assistance will be welcomed.

    I've had success in clicking the tiny icon at the left end of the HTTP and dragging to the Desktop then either drag to the Taskbar or right-click and Pin to the Taskbar. Maybe could bookmark to the Favorites/Bookmarks Toolbar then do the same.

    Why not configure the Mail app to use Hotmail? Seems like a much better solution.

    However, regardless, all you have to do is open up Edge, go to Hotmail, then click the 3 dots (...) in the upper right corner and choose "Pin this page to start". After that, you can right click the icon in Start, select More and choose Pin To Taskbar.

    But in spite of repeating every suggestion very carefully 3 times I have not succeeded in pinning HOTMAIL to the taskbar.
    Closest was open Hotmail (from favourites) got to three dots ,pin link to start. Only options in start are unpin or open ,( I dont know what but guess outlook, it has a inconvenient screen layout and is full of star tracks!!!!
    So I will console myself with the ability to open Hotmail, (which on the open screen calls itself OUTLOOK !!!)but is conveniently configured and does work.
    Thanks again.

    Ok I looked and Geeked around a bit.
    Am I correct in understanding, you wish to pin your online Email account to the taskbar?

    Please don't ask "But why can't I do this with Edge?", because I have no idea, send feedback to Microsoft.

    Have you tried the old way?

    Go to the site you want, log-in if required, copy the URL from the URL box.

    Right click on Desktop - Create Shortcut - paste into Location box - You have shortcut that will open site in your default browser - You can change icon and opening detail as with any other shortcut - add it to the folders that are the actual menu structure and pin to wherever you wish

    I tried,it doesn't work Nigel.
    I even placed a copy of the shortcut(with custom Outlook icon) inC:\Users\User Name\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Quick Launch\User Pinned\TaskBar and that did not work.

    how do I pin hotmail to taskbar

    The above technique I posted, is also a good idea for users with small devices and/or very limited disk space(such as Windows Phones or tablets), as they can use the online version of Outlook, Office, and Skype with out installing the software, and just click the "app" shortcut when they need it.

    Cliff, Sorry, I see what you mean, I can place the shortcut anywhere except on the TaskBar ( it insists in adding it to the Firefox popup menu) Usable but not what was asked for

    You can do the same with Chrome as with IE by following these steps:

    how do I pin hotmail to taskbar [​IMG]


    It creates a desktop shortcut, places one in Chrome apps(the first time it creates a folder for the web apps):

    And on the Chrome apps page, it creates a shortcut also:

    The desktop shortcut from Chrome can also be pinned to the taskbar, and then left open, or can be left running in the background if this is selected in settings
