    Anomalous context menu in all taskbar shortcuts


    The context menu contains only
    - unpin
    - close (if referenced program is running).

    Formerly the menu contained also the name, whose submenu contained
    - properties
    - run as admin.

    There is not many attributes available in the right click Taskbar context menu for UWP apps..., some inferior UWP apps don't even have jump lists!
    for Win32 programs, it should be the same as it's always been, or similar.
