    Pin Excel to start and or taskbar


    Cannot Pin Excel to start menu or task bar. Office shows on start menu but have to open it first then Excel. Excel does not show on list of programs. It opens fine when I go to office THEN to excel but would be more convenient to go directly to Excel since I use it often

  2. Option to pin to taskbar is missing for Excel in Windows 10

    Hello Kent,

    Thank you for contacting Microsoft Community.

    We understand the inconvenience you have experienced.

    Usually when you're working on any Excel file, you can see an instance of Excel Icon will be located on taskbar. Simply right-click and selecting
    Pin to taskbar will do this. Let me elaborate this in steps.

    * Open new Excel sheet or any Excel file which you're working. (I.e. to open new Excel sheet, press
    Start, type Excel and select same from the list)

    * Go to Taskbar and then right-click on opened Excel file located on taskbar.

    * Now select Pin to taskbar.

    Another way is, go to Start /> All apps, then navigate alphabetically till you find
    Excel. Then right-click on, point to More and select Pin to taskbar.

    Done, this will Pin Excel sheet to Taskbar. You can follow the same steps for pinning any application to taskbar.

    Keep us posted the outcome.

    How to pin applications to taskbar with windows 10

    Hi,

    Just bought a new PC with Windows 10 and installed MS Office Home & Student 2016

    I can pin Word to both Start and Taskbar

    BUT the option to pin to Taskbar does not appear for either Excel or Powerpoint when I right click on their icon - whether they are on the desktop, in the list of Apps in the start menu or even in the programs folder in the bowels of the file system

    How can I pin Excel to the Taskbar?

    Pin Excel to start and or taskbar

    Depending on the version of office you are using Excel may be under a "Microsoft Office" folder in the start menu.

    I know it is under office, How do put the EXCEL icon , by itself , on the task bar?. So I can access it with one click and not 3.

    In the Office folder, find Excel, right-click and select "More...", click on "Pin to taskbar...". That should do it...

    Is this a stand alone, or domain connected PC?

    You can try creating shortcut directly. Either search for the "excel.exe", or find it in the installation directory. In my case, it is in the directory (yours might be different):
    Find the "excel.exe" in the directory, right-click, select "Send to" and click on "Desktop [create shortcut]". From the desktop, you can drop the shortcut to the taskbar.
