Windows 7: Pinned on Taskbar

09 Dec 2010   #1

Windows 7 64 bit
Pinned on Taskbar

I seemed to have lost the ability to "pin" Outlook & IE8 & some others to the taskbar. I'm sure it had something to do with my "fingerer poking".
Please let me know how I can re-start it. Thank you, Joe

Hello Joe,

You might go ahead and do this to see if this may be the issue or related. It will not harm anything since it's only restoring the default lnk (shortcuts) file extenstion associations.
