PinOnTen – Pin or unpin to taskbar on Windows 10 command line tool

Yet another command line tool that pins or unpins executables or .lnk files to the Windows 10 taskbar. Since Windows 10 made some changes that would not let users to pin or unpin to the taskbar programmatically, I decided to write this simple tool that could help you pin or unpin executables/.lnk files only to your Windows 10 taskbar. It is still in beta stage, so please keep that in mind, since this hasn’t been tested on many Windows 10 machines. The usages is as shown in the snapshot above.

Local Appx - a simple taskbar menu to launch local Windows Store apps

This is a small tool I wrote in order to pin it to the Windows 8/8.1/10 taskbar, specially to show the Windows Store local applications, mainly for programmers that want to locate their software easily. Once pinned, it will be launched by clicking or Win+(the number of its position). It is planned to extend its features, since this is a proof of concept tool, and mainly written for my own purposes, since searching my applications using the Start Menu is not fast as it might look.
