Adding a taskbar toolbar

Recommended Posts

I would like to add a office toolbar to the taskbar by script, but from reading online this doesn't seem to be an easy task. From what i read it seems this can only be done by api or by changing the user registry before the user logs on (http://www.windowsitpro.com/Article/ArticleID/47605/47605.html)

Right now my script manually right clicks the taskbar ---> goes to toolbar ---> New toolbar

I would like to get away from this method...anyone have any ideas? anyone know how to do this by api?

Well it wouldn't need to be an office toolbar, ... but thats what i want to used it for...

i am just looking for an equivilent of right clicking on taskbar --> toolbar --> New toolbar

and pointing to a specific folder

as far as the mmc way... i don't really know what you mean

even a rundll32 link to the new toolbar dialog boy would be better than what i am using now
