It amuses me that since XP and now into 8.1, Windows STILL...

... won't let you drag certain short-cuts from the desktop onto the task bar, like Control Panel and "Run", yet it allows you to drag most everything else, including cmd (Command Prompt).

Actually Control Panel can be pinned on the Taskbar.

You're right, in Metro.

I can do it in win 7 so no idea what your talking about.

*Is on WinXP and can drag control panel and run to quick launch (if that is what you meant by "dragging to taskbar") without any issues whatsoever.

Mmm, ok.

Control Panel short-cut can't be dragged to Task Bar in W8 (Command Prompt works, Run doesn't). Maybe there is another way other than right-clicking CP in Metro and telling it to pin to Task Bar, but I can't see it.

Weird that some work and some don't. I remember this being the case in 7, too.

What bothers me the most is if you pin a specific folder to quick-launch it always just opens the file.explorer to the default spot, not the one you pinned. You still have to right-click the icon to access the one you pinned.
