Or do sites need to explicitly support it first?

What do you mean by explicitly supporting it? – Ivo Flipse Jan 12 '11 at 10:03

You should be able to pin any site. Just drag the tab from IE9 down to the task bar to pin it there.

I just tried it with several sites including our intranet and support portal, all worked flawlessly.

Oh. That’s the only way to do it? How terribly non-obvious! – Alan H. Jan 12 '11 at 1:53
And me thinking all the time this was not possible. I just pinned I guess I should leave it there.... – jdv-Jan de Vaan Jun 29 '11 at 20:46

Another way to do this is:

  • Press ALT to bring up the traditional window menu
  • Select the Tools menu
  • there should be an option called "Add site to Start Menu".

This is similar to the Chrome tool to make a website a standalone app (through this method the back and forward buttons will turn the predominant color of the favicon).

Hmm, what “arrows”? – Alan H. Jan 12 '11 at 1:58
The navigation backward/forward arrows. Also, I forgot to note that once in the start menu, you can pin it to the taskbar. This should be a link to that in action:… The arrows should be red instead of the default blue. – Chuck Jan 12 '11 at 1:59
