IE9 power tips

IE9 power tips: the secrets of pinned site shortcuts

Pinned shortcuts are the killer feature of Internet Explorer 9, as I noted in my review of the IE9 beta yesterday. (For a quick refresher on how pinned sites work and why they’re so useful, see “Treating websites as apps.”)

C:\Program Files (x86)\Internet Explorer\iexplore.exe” -w “%l” %*

The –w switch is what causes Internet Explorer 9 to treat this process as a pinned website rather than a standard web page. The remaining parameters tell IE9 to use the saved location and any other switches from the saved shortcut.
