  1. Pinning To File Explorer


    I did a lot of reading and searching on this problem but never found anything completely on target. I used to be able to drag a folder icon to the file explorer icon on the task bar and it would be pinned to the file explorer.

    A right click on file explorer shows 11 items "pinned" and 8 more under "recent". I think you're allowed 12 items in the "pinned" section. I deleted one to be certain there was a place to put the one I was adding.

    I get the info bubble pop up that says 'add to pinned" yet nothing ever actually gets pinned. Does this not work any longer in Win10 v.1903?

    If you can't drag and drop, then how do folders get added to the pinned section of the right click menu on file explorer? Thanks for any help.

    :)

    Pinning things to the file explorer on start bar?


    @Alfred001, if you hover your mouse to the far right of any name in the 'Recent' list you can pin it to the list of pinned items. This works for the File Explorer icon on Start and on the taskbar (if you have File Explorer pinned to the taskbar).

    Hi Leon,



    Thank you for posting on Microsoft Community. I understand the inconvenience you faced. I apologies for delay in reply. I will certainly help you with this.

    I suggest you to unpin the File explorer from the task bar and re-pin the File Explorer and check If issue is resolved. If issue persist, I suggest you to follow the below given steps and check if it helps:



    I suggest you to run System file checker. System File checker (SFC) scan is done to check if there are any corrupted system files that could be causing this issue. Kindly follow the below given steps:

    • Press Windows key + X, select
      Command prompt (Admin)
      to bring up elevated Command prompt.
    • In Command prompt type sfc/scannow and press enter.
    • Restart the computer.
    If no corrupted system files were found in the previous state, then I suggest you to try the following steps:

    • Open command prompt by pressing Windows key + X and selecting “Command prompt admin”.
    • In command prompt, type the following commands and press Enter after each command:
    DISM.exe /Online /Cleanup-image /Scanhealth

    DISM.exe /Online /Cleanup-image /Restorehealth

    • Close the command prompt and restart the PC and check if it works.


    Hope this information helps. Please post back with the results, we will be glad to assist you further.
