Windows 7 Tutorial

Pin / add a web page (website) to your start menu in Windows 7

The previous tutorial explained how you can pin programs to your start menu in Windows 7; but did you know that you can do the same thing for web pages and websites? This is because any shortcut can be pinned to the start menu, including shortcuts to programs, shortcuts to documents, and shortcuts to Internet addresses ("URLs"). In this tutorial, we will use the Hotmail sign in URL as example of web page to pin to our start menu, but you can do the exact same thing for any website or web page you can open inside a web browser (Internet Explorer or other).
