Java apps can sometimes be a pain to pin to the taskbar, since they rely on first starting up the Java Runtime Environment in order to run; they are therefore not actually a shortcut to the app itself, but rather the JRE. However, there is a way... :lemcat:

Here's how to pin SuperLemmini to your taskbar!

1. Right-click on the desktop and navitage to New>Shortcut

2. In the window that pops up, Browse to the superlemmini.jar Executable Jar File

3. Name the shortcut SuperLemmini (or whatever you wish)

4. Check that the shortcut opens SuperLemmini

5. Right-click the shortcut and select Properties

6. In the Target field, type the following at the start, before the “C:/path/to/jar” text: javaw.exe[SPACE]-jar[SPACE]

Note: [SPACE] means a space bar entry, do not type "[SPACE]"

7.   Check that the shortcut opens SuperLemmini

8.   Now, when you right-click the Shortcut, it will give you the option to pin it to the Taskbar

To change the icon:

1.   Right-click the Taskbar icon

2.   Right-click SuperLemmini in the pop-up menu

3.   Select Properties

4.   Select Change Icon

5.   Navigate to the desired Icon and click OK

Note: In Windows 10, it can sometimes take a while for the icon to update. It usually occurs after logging out and back in again.

Any questions, please feel free to ask and I'll help if I can.
