Hi all

and was like this


now the pinned folders has gone , now are only Recent


where had gone my pinned folders??
i know that is not so hard to put folders back,
but why they are disapiered

sorry for my crappy english


Solutions:

1.
Jump Lists - Reset and clear All Items

2.
go to folder
%appdata%\Microsoft\Windows\Recent\AutomaticDestinations
%appdata%\Microsoft\Windows\Recent\CustomDestinations


and in both folder find this file:
1b4dd67f29cb1962.automaticDestinations-ms
and delete it
Restart or Logoff
pin al folders back and the problem shouldn't come back for a good time

Pinned and toolbar is the same - exactly the same amount of clicks. No idea why you lost them. Given that experience, I would not do it again that way. But that is your choice. It may be fun to redo those shortcuts every week - LOL.

Trolic,

Yep, that would work if it was just corruption as a cause. Option Two in the tutorial I posted above will do that automatically for you. Afterwards, you could add them back.
