can't pin programs to taskbar in 8.1 RRS feed

  • Question

  • I can pin windows apps - Read, Finance - to the taskbar - they appear and work (not that i use them). When i pin programs - Chrome, Word - it says that is is pinned but nothing shows up in the taskbar.

    Rebooted = no change

    Checked Registry to ensure this feature was enabled= no change

    I have been able to pin what i want up until Friday so not sure what happened - everything is updated and there have been no changes made on my computer.

    thanks

  • Hi,

    Please following the path below to check if Word and Chrome shortcut was there:

    C:\Users\User name\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Quick Launch\User Pinned\TaskBar

    If so, Please delete these files and try to pin to taskbar again for test, then check if  this issue fixed.
