Unable to Pin SCCM Support Center to Taskbar in Windows 7

I use this great tool for SCCM troubleshooting – http://blogs.technet.com/b/configmgrteam/archive/2015/01/26/january-2015-update-to-configuration-manager-support-center-has-been-released.aspx

Its like CMTrace on Speed!

But there is an issue with it, for some reason I couldn’t pin the Icon to my Start Bar. Which i want to do because I use a few times each day (we have too many things going wrong i know!)

For some reason M$ have implemented a list of reserved words, and if you have any of these in the application title you are unable to pin the program… The list is in the registry :

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\FileAssociation\AddRemoveNames

To fix the issue, just remove “Support” from the list. You still won’t be able to pin it via right click on the start menu – but opening the program then choosing “Pin to Taskbar” from its context menu will work.
