Pin to Taskbar

Hi all.

I cannot seem to be able to pin a program/shortcut to the taskbar.
Does anyone know a way around this?

When you right-click, does the Pin to Taskbar appear in the list?

You have to right-click on the shortcut to the program.

Hi all.
I tried what you said, it does'nt work.
I do not get the pin to when I R/C a s/cut or a program

Did you use some type of tweaking tool that may have removed it.

I'll look in the registry and see if I can locate it.

It's quite possible that I removed it by mistake somehow.

With a treaking program?

I know of no other way to remove it.

No, no tweaking. All I did recently, was to clean out the registry along with other cleaning.
I think that it's possible I somehow removed it then.

Can you choose a restore point?

Open up the program and you;ll see it on the taskbar. Right-click on it and choose Pin to taskbar

Don't think so.
This is a new install, was in process of installing programs etc when I noticed Pin to was missing.
I would not know how far bact to go

I couls always reinstall Windows 7 (64bit ) from scratch.

Make sure to perform a "clean" install, not an upgrade.

Will do. I will format as well.

Thanks for your help.
