I've finally upgraded to Windows 7 at work. However, I find myself unable to drag documents onto certain pinned icons on the taskbar and have the apps that own those icons open the file. Seemingly nothing happens, at least with programs I've installed under my own profile (I don't have access to install system-wide).
I have noticed that we now have to hold Shift to open documents this way; otherwise it just pins the document to the icon's menu. But doing this doesn't help me with my user-installed apps.
Some of the apps I've tried and failed with are Vim, jEdit, and WinMerge; when placed in a taskbar toolbar, these all used to be perfectly adept at accepting dropped files (under Windows XP). Notepad, on the other hand, does accept shift-drops; and all of these programs' windows accept dropped files once they're already open.
Is there a way I can make these obstinate app icons accept drops too?
