Windows 7 pin to taskbar?

I switched back to the XP/Vista style bar because it just takes far too long using the default interface. I've used it for about a month now and I got no faster at all.

Once I switched to "small icons" I lost my pinned hotkeys in the taskbar. Even if I drag it in there nothing happens. It just gives the red crossed out circle.
Even if I right click on the icon I want to go to the taskbar, it just "thinks" but nothing happens.

Any ideas?
