Great little tip
You may or may not be aware of this little gem in ie 9

You can launch your favourite websites straight from your start menu

heres how:-

Go to the web page of your choice.

press alt to bring up the menu bar, (thats another story to make it permanent)

Click on tools and then click add to start menu. You even get the site logo.

That's great, I even pinned them to my task bat so I wouldn't have to go looking for them in my start menu, Thanks.
If you find any more of those little gems for ie9 post em up.

Re: Great little tip
Umm couldn't you just add a webpage to your favorites then drag it to your start menu or desktop?
That's what I do at work and we only have IE7 and 8.

Re: Great little tip
I have a few sites that I go to every day on my bookmarks toolbar and I still use the restored Quick Launch bar even in Win7 because I like the small icons.

Re: Great little tip
yeah if you have them pinned like this, they also become your home page when you click home
