    Hello, all of a sudden I can no longer drag shortcuts from the desktop to the taskbar
    and thus pin them, there appears a 'stopsign' next to the icon and it doesn't stay pinned.

    However, when I installed Firefox just now, it pinned itself to the taskbar OK.
    What gives?:eek:

    I'd be thankful for any and all help!

    How many pinned do you have ?

    There coud be a limit beyond which you can't pin manually. + you can't pin anything you want.

    What are you trying to pin, some items you are not allowed to pin, is it an application, folder, file?

    When the pinned shortcuts occupy all the taskbar's space, you can't see the newly pinned items until you get rid of some older ones.
