Drag Files to the Taskbar to Open Them in Windows 7

When you try and drag a file onto a taskbar button in Windows 7, you’ll be prompted to “Pin to Application”, instead of opening the file.

If you right-click the taskbar button, you’ll see that now that file has been pinned there.
What you need to do instead, is hold down the Shift key while dragging the file to the taskbar button, and it will change to “Open with Application” instead.
It’s one of those simple tips that can seriously save you some time.
