  1. How to open pinned items in a new tab in Windows Taskbar


    Conventionally, the internet consists of posts that prevent this behavior. But I want to design my workspace such that the pinned items will be separate from the open windows. Does anyone know how to achieve this?

  2. Is there a limit on pinned taskbar items?

    You can only have up to 12 pinned items on any program.

    What I suggest is making a folder with all the icons [RDP files] to the machines and pin it as a toolbar:

    1. Create a folder named Remote Desktop (can be any name)
    2. Right click on empty space on taskbar
    3. Select Toolbars
    4. Click New Toolbar
    5. Locate to the folder and select it

    (I suggest you keep them more organized, however.)

  3. Moving pinned items on Windows 10 taskbar

    Thanks for your reply.

    Just in case this was a result of a poor description of the problem by me, I will explain in detail.

    I have Excel permanently pinned to the taskbar. When I right click the Excel tile, the context menu shows a list of Pinned items at the top and Recent items below that. I believe these are called jump lists.

    When I hover over an item on the Pinned list a push pin (), overlaid with a no entry sign (), is displayed to the right of the item.

    I can click on the pin to unpin it from the pinned list.

    Under Windows 7, I was able to left click on an item in the pinned list and drag it up or down to a different position in the list. This drag and drop functionality has never worked for me under Windows 10. As I noted in my original post,
    the only way to resequence pinned items it to unpin all items then repin in the desired sequence.

    Do you know if the drag/drop functionality will be re-introduced in the Windows 10 anniversary update?

  4. How to open pinned items in a new tab in Windows Taskbar

    Moving pinned items on Windows 10 taskbar

    In Windows 7 you could drag a pinned item on a taskbar tile to move it up and down the list of pinned items.

    This drag/drop functionality is not available in Windows 10 - I read somewhere that the only way to resquequence pinned items it to unpin all items then repin in the desired sequence.

    This is a pain.

    Does anyone know if the drag/drop functionality will be re-introduced in the Windows 10 anniversary update?

    Thanks
