Pin Internet Explorer Metro mode to taskbar in Windows 8.1 Update 1

With the Update 1, Microsoft allowed Windows users to pin Modern applications to task bar in Desktop mode, however it is impossible to pin Internet Explorer Metro mode, without this little workaround:

ie.png

start “” http://bing.com

cmd.exe /C C:\MetroIE.bat

C:\Program Files\Internet Explorer\iexplore.exe

-or-

C:\Program Files (x86)\Internet Explorer\iexplore.exe

depending on your architecture.

You can delete the shortcut, but don’t delete the bat file.

Hope this helps.
