  1. To pin chrome,file explorer to taskbar from regsitry


    Hi

    I have a scenario where I need to pin chrome,file explorer in task bar in an image through registry hive itself.
    When I go through "HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Taskband"
    I find encrypted data of the pinned items in task bar. How can we get to know which items are pinned here?
    Also can we add chrome,file explorer in this specified registry hive?If so please let me know if I can achieve in this hive itself or any other.*Huh

    Also I dont want to achieve through gpo

    :)

    To pin chrome,file explorer to taskbar from regsitry

    Pinning To File Explorer

    I can confirm that in 1903 I can click and drag a folder and pin it to File Explorer on the taskbar. I can also confirm that the pinned folders on the taskbar are the same ones show in Quick Access in File Explorer, and that pinning a new one to the taskbar adds it to Quick Access.

    It may be that your File Explorer jump list is corrupted. This can happen occasionally and have similar odd effects to those you describe. If so, you can delete the jump list and start again with an empty list. To do so, delete the file:

    %appdata%\microsoft\windows\recent\automaticdestinations\f01b4d95cf55d32a.automaticDestinations-ms

    To clear the jump lists for all apps, not just the one for File Explorer, see this tutorial.
