    I've had a search and found out where I can add in Word, Excel etc to the taskbar for a specific windows user, but it there a way I can do that for All Users?

    For example, for the Admin account, the location of items in the task bar is:

    c:\users\administrator\appdata\roaming\microsoft\internet explorer\quick launch\user pinned\taskbar

    The problem i'm having is that the appdata part of the path doesn't exit for the All Users account.

    Does anyone know of a way i can make a standard set of apps appear in the taskbar for any users that log on?

    maybe check the default user profile (if its there in win7??). it might also be hidden

    EDIT: just realised, if you did this it might only appear for new users, not current users
