Startmenu: Cannot pin files in Notepad, Excel


New Member
Greetings :)

When I expand recent files in Notepad or Excel via startmenu and click the "Pin to this list" or "Unpin from this list" nothing happens. Interestingly, this is only the case for certain programs (Notepad and Excel so far) while others (Wordpad, Firefox, Paint.NET) have the correct behavior.

Was the error there at install: No.
Frequency: Always.
OS: Windows 8.1 Pro N

Any hints on where to investigate further much appreciated :) Thank you kindly.
