    Can't Pin Windows 10 Recycle Bin to Taskbar

    Hi - you can fix this problem by first creating a shortcut for the recyle bin. Once you've done this you'll be able to pin it to your start menu and the taskbar. For some reason if you don't use a shortcut you can only pin the recycle bin to the start menu
    and not the taskbar. So here are the steps you need to do in full..

    • go to desktop and make sure you've got 'show desktop' icons selected so you can view the desktop icons including the recyle bin.
    • right click the recycle bin and choose the option to create a shortcut. This creates a short cut icon to the recyle bin on the desktop (yes, of itself pretty useless but it is this that fixes the problem for us!)
    • now select and right click the shortcut you created in Step 2. above and choose the option to 'pin to start'. This creates a tile on your start menu to the recycle bin.
    • goto the Start Menu and choose the recyle bin tile you created in step 3. right click this and you'll now see there is an option to pin it so the taskbar. All should now be working and you'll have a shortcut to your recycle bin on both your start menu and
      on the taskbar.

    Quite why MS should make achieving this simple objective so very difficult is one of the great mystries of the 21st Century!?

    Trying to pin 'Microsoft Edge' to taskbar

    Hi Alan, drag Edge from your Start menu onto the Desktop

    This will create a Desktop Shortcut, but will also leave the Tile on the Start Menu

    If you right click the Desktop Icon, can you then choose 'Pin to Taskbar'?
