We have always dropped files directly on the quick launch buttons to quickly and easily open them in the application the shortcut pointed to, but now in Windows 7 or 8 it doesn’t let you do that by default. When you try and drag a file onto a taskbar button in Windows 7 or 8, you’ll be prompted to 'Pin to Application', instead of opening the file.
If you now right-click the taskbar button, you’ll see that now the file has been pinned there.
What needs to be done instead, is hold down the Shift key while dragging the file to the taskbar button, and it will change to 'Open with Application' instead.
This is a simple tip that can seriously save you some computer time.
