    Pinned excel file shortcuts to start menu not working


    When I click to open the pinned excel document shortcuts from Start menu its opening only excel app (blank) instead opening document.

    When I open the same shortcuts from its location ("C:\Users\......\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs"), the shortcuts work correctly and the document opening.

    Please help .

  2. How to pin an Excel 2007 file to the W10 Start fly-out menu

    Thanks Annu.

    In Method 1, at step 2, the file I want doesn't already appear in the Start menu. Do mean to browse to the file I want in the File Explorer? If I right click on the file in the File Explorer, "Pin to Start menu" is not an option.

    In Method 2, at step 4, I release the left button, but the file doesn't appear anywhere in the Start Menu afterwards. It's not listed along with my Most Used apps, and it's not pinned in the Jump Menu of Excel 2007.

    Maybe I misunderstood something in your directions?

    Cheers,

    Vince

  4. Pinned excel file shortcuts to start menu not working

    How to pin shortcut to start menu.

    At first, you can create a shortcut in your Programs folder
    (in a hidden folder C:\Users\xxxx\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs). The shortcut appears in
    All apps list. Then you can pin it to Start menu / Taskbar as Mayank Gupta10 suggested.

    The common way is to create a shortcut on the Desktop.
    But the more elegant way is creating Custom toolbars.
