This app allows you to pin file, folder and library into Win7/8 taskbar. You can select the stuff, either by using the button provided, or type the stuff path yourself.

It also support Drag-and-Drop, which allows you to pin a bunch of stuff at once.

"Set Before You Pin" is the concept of this app. You can customize how your shortcut will be, such as its icon, before you pin it to taskbar.

It also support any language version of Windows, as it uses Unicode version of API, and it loads the verb string (such as "Pin to Taskbar") from Shell32.dll at Runtime.

Besides that, it's also light and portable, as it's only a exe file. At here, I wanted to thank Mattias Sjögren
for his ShellLinkNative.vb and ShellShortcut.vb. Without his classes, this project will never work without dll.

Hope you guys will like it. :-D
