Pining for Pinning

Do you want a faster way to get to those Windows apps that you use all the time?  Well, you can pin a shortcut to that app on your Windows task bar (the bar that sits at the bottom of your screen that includes the Start menu on the left and date/time on the right).  Just find the application you'd like to pin on the Start menu or in All Programs then using your RIGHT mouse button drag and drop the application icon from the menu to the taskbar.  The application will be permanently "pinned" to the taskbar for use at any time.  REMEMBER that any time you open an application, an icon for that application automatically shows up on the taskbar but pinned items don't go away when you close the application for it.  Check it out!
