    I would like to pin a G Mail shortcut to the taskbar but MS has decided
    not to let this happen??? Can not be done---- anyone figure this out.

    It appears http shortcuts are pinned to IE. I see no way to pin http
    shortcuts directly to the taskbar.

    This looks like it could work, (I haven't tried it myself), :

    Seems like an awful lot of work!
    If the OP pins the URL to IE, then all he has to do is to right-click on the
    IE icon in the taskbar and the pinned item appears at the top..

    Drag the URL to the taskbar and it will get pinned to IE. Right-click on IE
    in the taskbar to see your pinned items..
