  1. Microsoft frowns on any installer messing with the task bar (http://blogs.msdn.com/b/oldnewthing/archive/2003/09/03/54760.aspx). I believe (tho I haven't looked closely) that we do have some special cleanup code to remove the existing shortcut. Because if you don't, then an uninstall/install (or upgrade) would leave the old pinned item pointing to nothing. (I see that with other programs I use)


    Also note http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/dd378460(VS.85).aspx, specifically "A small set of applications are pinned by default for new installations. Other than these, only the user can pin further applications; programmatic pinning by an application is not permitted."

    Yes, adding it programmatically is frowned upon but if I have manually pinned an application I expect it to stay pinned after upgrading.


    I am on Windows 7.  I just installed the update today and was noticing the same problem with the taskbar; then figured out that if you locate Evernote in the start menu, right-click drag it to the Desktop to create a shortcut, you can pin THAT shortuct to the taskbar.  Hope this helps!

    Great tip! I wish I didn't need to do this, but it is a good workaround. Note: You can create the shortcut anywhere, you don't need to clutter your desktop if you don't want to. I put my shortcut under "My Documents".
