  1. Can't pin or unpin apps to the taskbar!


    My laptop is a Dell Inspiron 13 7000, updated to Windows 10 Home version 1083. I am having trouble pinning and unpinning apps to my taskbar. The issue is a bit hard to explain, but I will try my best to describe it. I've also attached screenshots to help clarify.


    When I unpin an app, and then right-click on the black area of the taskbar, a menu pops up as if that app is pinned there. So for example, I unpinned OneNote the other day. Now if I right-click on the black empty space of a majority of the taskbar, a menu will pop up as if OneNote were there. The options are "OneNote, Pin to Taskbar, and Close All Windows." I don't have any OneNote windows opened. I right-clicked directly beneath that OneNote menu box.


    When I open an app that isn't pinned to the taskbar, such as Settings, it appears all the way to the right close to the notifications area. The taskbar is acting as though there are apps pinned everywhere between the Windows Store and the newly opened Settings page. Every time I try to pin and then unpin an app, the issue gets worse. Is there a way to reset my taskbar or fix this issue? Can't pin or unpin apps to the taskbar! 7fcaf622-b7db-418a-809c-f371b58ba200?upload=true.jpg

    Query re pinning and unpinning apps to taskbar


    I tried using Edge and as I liked it I right clicked the app listing and the pinned it to the taskbar.

    What I want to know is how to put that Edge listing back with the other apps because if I unpin it from the taskbar how does one reattach Edge to the listings.

    Pinning an app to taskbar does not remove it from Start all apps list. It list in Start under letter M as in Microsoft Edge, you should find it there even when it is pinned to taskbar.

    Can't pin certain desktop shortcuts to taskbar


    Hello Don,

    Apps and programs can be pinned to the taskbar, but not files. Instead, files (ex: .xls) can be pinned inside the jump list of it's pinned default program (ex: Excel).
