Enabling ‘Pin to taskbar’ for Eclipse on Windows 7

May 13, 2012 Leave a comment

When installing Eclipse on Windows 7 it will not support the Pin this program to taskbar by default – for that you will need to do one simple thing: edit the eclipse.ini file.

You need to add the following to the begining of the file:

-vm
c:/Program Files/Java/jdk1.6.0_32/bin/

After restarting Eclipse the option will be available.

Two notes:

  • Replace the path to your JRE/JDK with the one in the example
  • There should not be any spaces before ‘c:/…’ – otherwise Eclipse will not start.
