    Windows 10 1709 & 1803 Lost icons



    I am currently going through all UK Windows 10 users and implementing Microsoft One Drive for Business.



    I currently have 2 users in the UK that are having issues after I have disabled offline files in Sync centre they lose all desktop and taskbar Icons when not connected to the network.



    If I leave Offline files enabled I get the desktop and taskbar icons when on or off the network



    If a user is connecting VIA VPN they must wait a little before the desktop and taskbar icon appear




    I am sure I will find this issue on more laptops as I move them across to One Drive

    :)

    Trying to move desktop icon to the task bar. Cannot make it “stick” to the taskbar

    Hi,

    To assist you further, let me ask.


    • When you say “Trying to move desktop icon to the task bar”, you mean pin the excel workbook to the task bar?
    • what exactly when you try to stick the excel file to the taskbar?
    If you are trying to pin the excel workbook to the taskbar.

    Follow the steps below.


    • Click on the start menu, select the icon and right-click on the icon.

    • From the list, select pin it to taskbar or pin it to start.
    Also, you can drag the icon from the desktop and drop on the task bar.

    I hope the information is helpful and if the issue still persists, we’ll be glad to assists you.

    Thank you.

    Windows 10 lost my pinned OneDrive file links on the task bar

    First, my files are not missing, I simply cannot access them the same way I did with Windows 8 and 8.1

    Correct behavior from Windows 8.1:

    1) Open Windows Explorer

    2) Find and open Notepad file "Notes.txt" located in a OneDrive folder

    3) Notepad is pinned to the task bar

    4) Right-click on Notepad icon in task bar

    5) List of recent files appears, including files recently opened on OneDrive

    6) Right-click on "Notes.txt", left-click on Pin To This List

    7) "Notes.txt" is now quickly accessible from the list of files in the Notepad list on the task bar

    Under Windows 10, step 5 is broken. Files located on OneDrive never appear in the list of recent items for a pinned application on the task bar. This behavior is duplicated on the Start Menu Jump List.

    Under Windows 8.1, I had many pinned documents connected to applications on my task bar. As soon as Windows 10 booted the first time, these links disappeared. Links to documents on the desktop or in my local Documents folder, remained linked to task bar
    applications.

    Has anyone else seen this behavior, or is it just my computer?

    Windows 10 Defender - How to make it default to task bar?

    Using Windows 10 and currently I am using Defender for anti virus. For whatever reason Windows Defender does not show up in the task bar unless I search for the program or right click and scan a file/folder. Is there a way to force Defender to show up in the task bar at start up?
