Pin website to taskbar in Windows 7?

  • IE and Chrome have a feature that allow you to pin a specific website to the taskbar. Can this be done in Opera (either 20+ or 12.16)? A Google search brought up a couple of posts that led me to believe this was possible at some point, but clicking on the links just redirected me to the forums main page, so I'm guessing those posts didn't make it in the transition to the new forums.

  • Pin Opera to the Menu, and open the Task List to the right of the Opera shortcut. Right-click on any recently opened page to pin to the Task List.

  • Thanks for the response Pesala. I pinned Opera to the Start Menu and clicked on the arrow to the right, but the only options I have under tasks are New Tab, New Window, and New Private Window. None of the sites I have visited are listed there. I thought I might have set my settings to disable history, but I checked, and all of my history is showing up fine in Opera 20. Any ideas?

  • OK, figured that part out. I had changed the start menu properties to not show recent items in the start menu or taskbar. Changing that allows me to pin a site to the jumplist for Opera. This is helpful and an improvement over opening Opera and then opening the site, but not quite as streamlined as how it works in IE or Chrome. When I pin a site to the taskbar in either of those browsers the favicon for the site is pinned instead of the browser icon, and in Chrome at least the browser is locked to that site, if you click on any links it will open up in a new window. That's helpful for sites you want to make sure you always have opened. I'm guessing there currently isn't a way to do this in Opera?

  • Somewhat related question, can I start with just this one site as a pinned tab?

    oops...seemed I had asked this question a few months back and the answer was no. Sorry for the repeat.

  • Pin Opera to the Menu, and open the Task List to the right of the Opera shortcut. Right-click on any recently opened page to pin to the Task List.

    Formerly I was able to open "a new window", "new tab" and "new incognito" just by Right-clicking on the pinned opera on the Taskbar but it became inactive and after re-installing opera, when I Right-click on on the opera pinned to the taskbar I don't see those things again. How do i restore them?

    I can see all three options here. It was pinned by the installer ou manually by you? Have you pinned "launcher.exe"?
