The newly designed taskbar in Windows 7 allows you to pin programs to taskbar for quicker access, a feature which you could effectively use to increase your productivity.
Pinning a program to a taskbar also lets you access the Jump Lists function that will take you right to the documents, media files, websites as well as other program specific configurations (for example, you can right click the tab to start IE with InPrivate Browsing mode) you use most often.
If you are using Aero schemes, you can even view the thumbnail of each instance by simply moving the mouse cursor on the corresponding tab. Overall, pinning a frequently used app or a folder to the taskbar has its own advantages.
To pin a specific program to Windows 7 taskbar, just drag and drop the shortcut onto it, or right-click on the program icon and click on “pin to taskbar.”
