Pin Freemind to the taskbar in Windows7

Published 2010-04-08, 09:55

The normal Freemind shortcut goes directly to Freemind.exe, but as the execution takes place in Java you can’t pin this shortcut to the taskbar in Windows 7. Another icon will appear with the same icon. If you try to pin this icon, Freemind won’t start or the icon will change to the generic Java icon.

The solution to the problem is to change the target of the shortcut from […]/Freemind.exe to this:
"C:\Program Files\Java\jre6\bin\javaw.exe" -jar lib/freemind.jar
Now you can pin the program to the taskbar in Win7 and use it as every other program.

And yes, this tip works with almost all Java programs that are delivered with working .jar files.
