Thanks for using my real name onlineNow you don't have to try it, see for your self. Thanks Austin who is right next to me. He helped me because my dumb mac doesn't have a print screen button. Joy by being in the Mac world.
No he has not done that yet, we wanted to post proof their was no unpin buttonMastadj did you try out the registry key thing to see if it removed the links from the start menu?
Yea I know, In the process of trying to get a screenshot of the problem, I had to cause the same problem on my screenI had the exact same problem he was having and the solution i have posted fixed it for me. If you just follow those instructions in the earlier post im sure it will solve it.
Look here first C:\Users\(user name)\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Quick Launch\Taskbar Pinned\StartMenu
If it is in there delete it. If NOT Go onto the next stage.
1. Open the Start Menu.
2. In the search box, type regedit and press Enter. (See screenshot below)
3. In regedit, go to: (See screenshot below)
4. In the right pane, right click on Favorites and click on Delete.
NOTE: The long binary number for the Favorites Data value is the list of pinned items. Since it cannot be easily edited, deleting it will be easier to reset it.
5. Click on Yes to confirm the deletion.
6. Close regedit and restart the computer.
This should undo the icon from the start mnenu as it did on my machine.
Sorry but that only removed the recent porgrams, not the pinned programs. Trust me I tried thatYou guys are right with the path and registry key solutions, but here's another option:
Right-click on the Start Button and choose properties. Uncheck both check boxes under Privacy and click Apply.
This will remove everything.
Then just go back to properties and click the check boxes if you prefer.
Then when you start applications, tey will show up in the list again.
Nope still no options for me, As far as the registry thing goes, Its showing up for me just fine, It worked !doublea,
I just pinned my Downloads folder to the Start menu and I have 3 options
Remove from this list
You might want to ask him if he's in the registry editor. it sounds to me like he may be in the Windows directory looking for Current Version.
Just a thought.
