    Cannot PIN Local Services To Taskbar

    Good Day

    How come I cannot Pin windows services window to the bar? All other apps can pin. I use this window every day developing windows services and it is painful to use metro just to bring this window up.

    Pinning seems a broken feature. What gives?

    Search for services.msc (or find it under Administrative Tools). Then you can right-click and select Pin to Taskbar.

    So the msc file can pin from file navigator, but you cannot pin the shortcut from the metro screen? How queer. Thank you Bruce!

    Go to the start screen, start typing services. services.msc should appear in the list under view local services. Click on that, right click on the resulting services.msc icon on the left. Click pin to taskbar at the bottom. A couple of clicks more than the normal way, but quicker (I think) than Bruce's method.
