Allow Help Viewer 2.0 to be pinnable to the taskbar

In VS 2012, the help viewer (v2.0) cannot be pinned to the Windows taskbar.

This is a regression from help viewer 1.0 in VS2010.

I use it every day and have gotten used to launching help viewer from the taskbar. Please enable this functionality.

I opened a Connect issue for this problem but it was closed as "By Design" -- what fool made this the design?

        Same here. It isn't pinnable on the start menu as well. I hate having to type it every time I need it.

        Windows 7 x64.

        Uhm, I don't know what OS or VS version you're using but when using VS 2012 Professional on Windows 7 I can easily pin Help Viewer 2.0 on the taskbar. Whenever its active I simply right click, pin to taskbar and that's it.
