Pinning Foxit Reader to Taskbar [SOLVED]

Post by shmu26 » Thu Aug 31, 2017 1:41 pm

I have Foxit Reader as a forced app, in a dedicated sandbox, and I would like to pin it to the taskbar in Windows 10.
But when I right-click the icon, there are no options available for anything except for "close window".
If I pin it to task bar non-sandboxed, it will ignore that icon, and open sandboxed with a new foxit icon.

I am not sure why you would want to pin Foxit to the taskbar but I can pin Foxit to the taskbar. If Foxit is forced, all PDF files run sandboxed automatically when they are executed, thats what matters.

But if you want to pin a sandboxed shortcut for Foxit in the taskbar, follow the insyructions I gave you for Windows explorer. They ll work the same for Foxit, instead of looking and clicking on Windows explorer, for the Foxit shortcut, you look and click on foxit.exe.

It's really a matter of convenience, but you actually just gave me the solution, in a different thread about a different question:

I am all for convenience, by the way, you can do sandboxed shortcuts for just about anything you want.
