  1. PROBLEM - Task Bar Link

    Hello! I have a problem about task bar links. I tried to make my pinned applications to go to the middle of the task barthen I turned links off then on and I changed my mind about it being in the middle so I tried to move to the left side like how I make it go to the middle but I can move the links but the applications that were pinned is not moving. Please help

    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

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