For an application, right click the application and choose “pin to task bar.” For websites, files or folders, drag them to the task bar and let go. Then to access your “pinned” items, right click the pinned program used to create them (for example, Word or Internet Explorer) to show a “jumplist” of your pinned items along with the most recent or frequently accessed items.
