    Default Off topic but slightly relevant

    Howdy all,
    this is not so much about any of the products here but its annoyed the GAS out-a-me why i can't put an
    icon shortcut to the TASKBAR...i hate having an icon (for ESB product range and some other programs) on desktop...just me.

    So..if your wanting to have your ESB or another program on the TASKBAR right-click on the shortcut
    and add explorer in the front of it like this:

    1.either do this on the shortcut already on desktop, or if your like me delete it.
    Then go to start,right-click the ESB icon and go to properties---> http://prntscr.com/m7py4i
    2. ADD explorer and space in front of line like this ---> http://prntscr.com/m7pypn
    3. NOW simply right-click again and select 'pin to taskbar' ----> http://prntscr.com/m7pyw4

    I don't think it's a Dev thing. I think windows 10 is just ..retarded.

    ah...bliss!!!
    Why ? I right-click my desktop and select 'show n icons' because i got a 4K monitor and some cool background.
    Plus, instead of always "windows key" + D for the desktop i can click on ESB icon on taskbar...so much easier.
    And will work for mostly any other app that wont PLAY the game.
    PS: NO...I'm not talking about most programs that DO give you the add to taskbar but a lot of unusual ones don't.
    I think it might work with URL shortcuts too..haven't tried.

    What? you read down this far..lol...you need to get out more. Um, maybe so do i :/

    I use Stardock Fences to keep my desktop nice and neat. My setup looks like this https://cl.ly/6437ff . When I hover the mouse over one of them, it drops down and the icons are visible. Can be arranged anyway you like. But I do keep the programs I use the most in the lower taskbar. Great tip Schmutly.

    It may have something to do with our apps being "unsigned."

    Probably
    There's a few free icon apps i use from here https://www.sordum.org/?s=icon but it's more really for wanting
    my ESB on the taskbar. I hve a few batch files i run and now, finally their shortcuts are on taskbar.

    ok...anyway...still installing to my new SSD after a crash and some major stuff lost. Funny...i fix everyone else's
    here and get annoyed when ppl don't BACK UP...and I'm the hypocrite HAHA.
    43 degrees on Tues...39 Today...summary: tired. Sleep time LOL
