  1. Windows unpins apps from the taskbar


    Hello,I would like to ask, if there is someone who has a problem with pinned application to taskbar. When I download app from Microsoft Store like Messenger or WhatsApp, I pin it to taskbar. However, when I run the app, it unpins and in Start Menu it shows something like downloading bar see in picture. It is just happening to apps downloaded from Microsoft Store and not all of them - for example Spotify or iTunes doesn't do that, now just Messenger, WhatsApp and BlueMail Email appAny help? It happens also after a new install of Windows.

    :)

    Windows unpins apps from the taskbar

    Cannot unpin an Excel file from the Taskbar

    Long ago I pinned an Excel file to the Windows 10 taskbar. This means that if I right click on the Excel icon, which is also pinned to the taskbar, a pop-up list of file names appears with the pinned file at the top.

    The pinned file has an "Unpin from this list" icon beside it. If I click on the unpin icon, nothing happens. I tried pinning another Excel file to the taskbar and was able to unpin it. The problem seems to affect only this one file, pinned long ago.

    I have Googled and tried many posts for removing a pinned item (file, not an app) from the taskbar. None of them have worked.

    How can I unpin this Excel file?

    Thanks!
