We made some changes during the weekend and you can now pin Geekzone to the Windows 7 taskbar when using Internet Explorer 9.
To do this open Geekzone in Internet Explorer 9, then drag the icon to the taskbar.
You can now access Geekzone directly from the taskbar. IF you right-click the icon you will see some links in the jump list, for direct access to some areas on the site.
We plan to put some notifications there too, including PMs and new forum posts. This should be coming in the next few weeks.
