Now you are able to pin anything to Taskbar or Start screen in Windows 8.

With Pin to 8 you will able:

  • to pin ANY file regardless of its type;
  • to pin ANY folder;
  • to pin drive;
  • to pin Control Panel items, all them including some hidden like God Mode/All Tasks, Network Connections;
  • to pin Libraries;
  • to pin Shell Objects like Run command, "Show Desktop", Window Switcher;
  • to pin any folders or files with drag and drop. Drop them on application window.

Checkout new dialogs which features filter boxes for libraries and shell locations

Version 2.0 is available
I made some core improvements:
* improved user folders' location detection in case when folder redirection is enabled via Group Policy
* fixed crash of app when it was started from a network share
* fixed the file/folder pinning issue when the target file is located on a network share.

Added "Pin to Start Screen" workaround for Windows 8.1.

Unfortunately, access to that context menu item cannot be done programmatically anymore. I have explained it here.

You can download Pin to 8 from here: click.

Personally I think the name is better. While I don't use this product, I can say that it's easier to say "Pin to 8" than it is to say "Start Screen Pinner". :p
