Hi @mtr_rickli,

To add your Access application (*.accde) to the taskbar in Windows 11, follow these steps:

  1. Locate your *.accde file, usually in C:\\Program Files or C:\\Program Files (x86)¹.
  2. Right-click on the *.accde file and choose Show more options in the context menu¹.
  3. Select Pin to taskbar from the options.

Alternatively, you can create a shortcut for your *.accde file and pin that to the taskbar:

  1. Create a shortcut using the following command: <path-to>msaccess.exe <path-to>your.accde.
  2. Right-click the shortcut, choose Show more options, and then select Properties.
  3. In the properties menu, click Pin to taskbar.

Tank you Leon
The first way does not show “Pin to taskbar”
The second solution is working:
1. Create a shortcut using the following command:
<path-to>msaccess.exe <path-to>your.accde.
2. Right-click the shortcut, choose Show more options, and then select Properties.
3. In the properties menu, click Pin to taskbar.
