    File Explorer pinned items reset to defaults

    I have a user who after upgrading from Windows 7 to Windows 10 cannot pin anything to his file explorer jump lists.

    I have tried all the fixes I could find and most didn't work. Some worked for a little while but eventually the file explorer resets to defaults and anything that was pinned is removed.

    Anyone have any suggestions on how to fix this?
