  3. pin multiple file explorer icons to taskbar

    Hi Horie,



    You will be able to view multiple pinned icons by scrolling down the taskbar on the computer desktop.



    Before we assist further, I would like to ask you a few questions:

    • Are you facing similar issue on performing
      Pin to taskbar
      ?
    • Are the icons not displaying on the taskbar?


    Check if similar issue persists on trying to pin the icons by right clicking on the file and selecting
    Pin to taskbar option from the context menu.



    Write to us with the answers to the above questions and the status of not able to pin file explorer icons on the computer in the same post
    for further assistance. Your reply is most important for us to ensure we assist you accordingly.



    Thank you.
