  1. How do I stop Office Apps automatically PIN themselves to my Taskbar?


    Our IT Department just upgraded us to Windows 10 and now, every time I log on, the Windows Office Apps automatically PIN themselves to my task bar. Every time I unpin them, the next logon, there they are.


    I have looked at Options (in Excel) and cannot find anything about it.


    Any ideas?


    Jay.

  2. Can't remove pinned office applications

    My laptop is a Dell Precision 7510, running Microsoft Windows 10 Enterprice 64bit (10.0.15063 Build 15063) and Microsoft Office 365 ProPlus (1701 Build 7766.2092).

    My problem is, that beside some useful apps on my taskbar, office has also pinned Word, Excel and PowerPoint. I would like to remove these 3 pinned apps. When unpinning them, they actually disappear, but after next restart (or restart of explorer.exe) they reaper as if nothing had happened.

    I have tried following this "guide":
    Can't unpin a program from the taskbar

    I have seen the above suggestion posted on several sites, but unfortunately it doesn't help in my case.

    When executing the script (or preforming the steps manually) all is removed, but after explorer.exe restart below icons always reaper:

    • File Explorer
    • Internet Explorer
    • Outlook 2016
    • PowerPoint 2016
    • Word 2016
    • Excel 2016

    Other apps pinned at the time is removed as intended.

    Does anyone have a suggestion to how I can remove these unwanted office apps from my taskbar? And why do above list or apps reapear after deleting them from both the %APPDATA% folder and REGEDIT?

    Thanks in advance.

    windows 10 home missing pin to taskbar for installed applications

    I added a third step to the first suggestion, which worked for me:

    1. Choose start> All apps,

    2. Scroll to the application you want to pin, right click and then click
    Pin to taskbar.

    3. When the desired icon tile appears in the desktop box, left click on it and drag it into the task bar.

    Icons for Office Apps missing from the Taskbar after Windows 10 upgrade

    Hi,



    Thank you for posting your query in Microsoft Community.

    I understand your concern and will assist you to resolve this issue.


    • Which version of office are you using?

    • What exactly happens when you try to create shortcut?

    • Are you getting any error message?


    I suggest you to pin the office app to taskbar and check if it helps.


    • Press windows button.

    • Select the app and right click on it and select more.

    • Select pin to taskbar and check if it helps.
