Launch Options for Windows 7 Taskbar

Microsoft Logo
If you are a Windows 7 power user, there are a lot of times you need to run an application as administrator. Or perform some other function other than launching app. Typically this is done by right clicking an app icon. However, apps on the Windows 7 Taskbar can only be unpinned from the bar when right clicked. Or so I thought...

Turns out if you shift right click an app on the Taskbar, you get the application pop up menu allowing you to perform special operations like "Run as Administrator". A time saver, much better than hunting for the app from the application menu.
