  • I'm not sure I fully understand your question, because I don't "pin" things.  

    Have you unchecked the boxes in the "Privacy" section of the Start Menu Properties?  Right-click the Start menu, then choose Properties to see these settings.  I suggest this because I've noticed some other boxes aren't remembering things I've done since I unchecked those.

  • Hi RR,

    Are you telling about the "Recent" in right click list?

    If so, try right click on Start button, choose Properties, go to Start Menu tab, uncheck the "Store and display recently opened items in the Start menu and the taskbar" to see the result.
