Wow this is a great script! I would really like to use it on Windows 8. But each time I do I get the following error: PS C:\> Set-PinnedAppli
cation -Action UnPinFromStartM enu -FilePath “C:\WINDOWS\sys tem32\notepad.e xe” Exception calling “DoIt” with “0″ argument(s): “The parameter is incorrect. (Exception from HRESULT: 0×80070057 (E_INVALIDARG)) ” At C:\PinnedApplic ation.psm1:67 char:13 + $itemVerb.DoIt( ) + ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ ~ + CategoryInfo : NotSpecified: (:) , MethodInvocatio nException + FullyQualifiedE rrorId : ComMethodTarget Invocation This happens whether I’m calling the UnPinFromStartM enu OR PinToStartMenu actions… Anybody have any ideas how to get it to run on Windows 8?
I've got the same error message on Windows Server 2012 R2. Do you get a solution since you posted this message ?

There are some issues making it work in Windows 10, details here: https://connect

I keep getting the "verb not found error" and the suggestions listed did not help. It only seems to happen with .lnk files for me and not .exe files. Alternatively, if I could pin an exe with an argument after the target file that would work.
I have a couple programs that i can pin by holding shift and right clicking the icon to pin to start menu. I was able to get your script to work for all applications except for those. How can I get the script working for icons that require you to hold shift to pin when using the mouse?

Hello All Can some one check this script and tell me why it is not working on Windows 7. I used a Windows 8 PC to do the script and test it and it work properly. The script basically unpin the Mozilla Firefox from task bar for all users. Thanks. Sub ShowFolderList(
folderspec) on error resume next Dim fs, f, f1, fc, s Set objShell = CreateObject("S hell.Applicatio n") Set objFSO = CreateObject("S cripting.FileSy stemObject") Set fs = CreateObject("S cripting.FileSy stemObject") Set f = fs.GetFolder(fo lderspec) Set fc = f.SubFolders For Each f1 in fc REM wscript.echo "Here is all the sub folders : " & f1.name strFileName = objFSO.GetFileN ame(f1) REM wscript.echo "value of strFileName is : = " & strFileName Set objFolder = objShell.Namesp ace("C:\Users\" & strFileName & "\AppData\Roami ng\Microsoft\In ternet Explorer\Quick Launch\User Pinned\TaskBar" ) Set objFolderItem = objFolder.Parse Name("Mozilla Firefox.lnk") Set colVerbs = objFolderItem.V erbs For Each objVerb in colVerbs If Replace(objVerb .name, "&", "") = "Unpin from Taskbar" Then objVerb.DoIt REM wscript.echo " Unpin successfully for user : = " & strFileName else REM wscript.echo " There is nothing to Unpin for user : = " & strFileName end if Next Next End Sub showfolderlist "C:\Users"
Hi Jan, I've tested the PS script on a W7 64 bit workstation and it works like a charm. But now I'm trying to get this script to work by using a GPO with a logon script calling this module. And I cannot get it to work. I am using a Windows Server 2008R2 domain controller and a W7 64 bit workstation for the test. This is what I have done: 1. I have put the PinnedApplicati
ons.psm1 file on the domain controller 2. I use the powershell tab for the logon script and filled it with the following parameters: Script name: PinnedApplicati ons.psm1 Script parameters: Set-PinnedAppli cation -Action PinToStartMenu -FilePath "C:\WINDOWS\sys tem32\notepad.e xe" What am I doing wrong? Best regards, Saskia
