    Hi folks -

    In Windows 7 this is not an issue, but in W10 it really is - at least for me.

    I want to take some desktop shortcuts and place then on the Taskbar, but I am not allowed to"Pin" them.
    Been here: Cannot pin some shortcuts to taskbar Solved - Windows 10 Forums

    No go for me.

    Without messing around in Group Policy, is there a simple way to do this?
    All the simple shortcuts do is invoke a webpage in Firefox. What a pain! *Rolleyes

    Any help appreciated. Thanks!

    Lost Upper Screen Desktop Shortcuts


    I do not how or why but last night the list of web sight and W10 shortcuts disappeared from my upper desktop screen. Now when I log on the W10 pinned boxes/apps page appears. How can I get the shortcuts back on my desktop upper screen? Please note that my shortcuts are still listed on the bottom line of the desktop as before.

    Thanks
