Re: Pinning apps to taskbar question
If you have folder shortcuts on the desktop you don't get the Pin to Taskbar in the context menu option.
How you can get around this if you have a folder shortcut that you want to pin to the Taskbar, try the following:
1. Highlight the desktop icon and press, Alt + Enter, to open the icon's properties.
2. When you open the icon's properties you'll be on the Shortcut page in the, Target field, and you want to add what's below, but read what's below character by character because you must include the space in what you type in.
That's the word, explorer , followed by a space .
Tab to, Okay, and press enter to save / close the properties.
You should now get a, Pin to Taskbar, option in the context menu.
Stay safe and take care. Mike.

Hi, Rosie. Just put whatever you have on your desktop on the Task Bar instead, then delete the icons that are on your desktop.
how do u clean out?
I keep my desktop as clean as possible. It helps my machine load faster. I pin apps to my task bar.
I have never pinned an app to the task bar. I have shortcuts for most of my apps on the desktop. Would there be any advantages to pin my apps to the taskbar?
