Nope, didn't know about the limit.

Actually, you can do "Pin to Startmenu" from the Explorer context menu just fine. This will add a new "Tile", not add the application to the "Recent Items" on the left. The problem: To select the proper Shell Verb ("Pin to Startmenu") we need to load the corresponding resource string - using a well-known fixed resource id. Either that, or we need a LUT for all language versions of Windows that exist...

My Plugins: StdUtils | NSISList | CPUFeatures | ExecTimeout | KillProc
