Can't Add a Shortcut to Windows 8.1. Taskbar: Windows Issue

Hi guys,

I'm trying to create google chrome bookmarks for some of the sites that I use and pin them to the Windows Taskbar.

I created a shortcut with a target:

"C:\Program Files (x86)\Google\Chrome\Application\[url removed, login to view]" [url removed, login to view]

When I first did it it worked great, I had chrome pinned to the taskbar and I had 2 or 3 direct site shortcuts on it as well. However, today they disappeared and I can't get it to work anymore (tried some registry settings...)

Now when I try to drag and drop them to the taskbar only the small red crossed circle icon appears and these shortcuts don't have "pin to taskbar" option in their right click menu... (actually, when I pin chrome to the taskbar, the "unpin from the taskbar" option appears from the shortcut's right click menu).

See the screenshots.
