      I’m looking for a PowerShell command or script that will pin these applications that I commonly use to the Windows taskbar at the bottom of Windows. (I have included the path to these programs):

      1. Computer management. Path: %windir%\system32\compmgmt.msc

      2. The Windows PowerShell icon. Path: %windir%\System32\WindowsPowerShell\v1.0\powershell.exe

      3. The Task Scheduler icon Path: %windir%\system32\taskschd.msc

      4. The command prompt icon. Path: %windir%\system32\cmd.exe

      5. The Internet Information Services (IIS) Manager icon. Path: %windir%\system32\inetsrv\InetMgr.exe

      6. The Notepad icon. Path: %windir%\system32\notepad.exe


      This script will mostly be used in environments where I don’t have access to Active Directory or Group Policy but where I can have the AD team put in a PowerShell script to run one time on several servers or where I will be running this PowerShell script whenever necessary on the individual servers and workstations that I am customizing.


      Someone wrote the following script which needs just a few more modifications until it will work properly:
