A GoldMine customer says, “When I want to add a Web Site to my custom Taskbar, it replaces the Web Site I already have there."

To get around this, when adding a web site link to the TaskBar, add it as an external application instead. The example below will open CNN.com in a new browser window, but you can substitute any web site for the CNN.com URL.

Bring up your taskbar by clicking Customize, then Right Click>Add New Item to the TaskBar. For Item Type choose External Application.

Caption is whatever you want to label the link on your taskbar; for example, CNN.
Application is C:\Program Files\Internet Explorer\iexplore.exe
Start Directory is C:\Program Files\Internet Explorer\

Then in the Command field place your web site URL – in this example “www.cnn.com” - with double quotes around it. You can choose an icon from your files if you like, or GoldMine will assign a generic one to the link.

Thanks to Chad Smith for the tip.
