Hi! wyrman, welcome to 7F

Start Orb >All Programs >Accessories >Right click Windows Explorer


Half way down the Context Menu there should be a listing "Pin to Taskbar" Click on that.
Then if you want to move it left click-hold, drag an drop to where you want it.

That's the problem. It's not there. No pin to anything.

Do this: Press Win+R and paste %windir%\explorer.exe into the Run box. Then click OK. Make the Resulting Explorer window smaller so that you can drag (what's shown in the picture) to the dektop. Then drag that shortcut into the taskbar.

Thanks. I'll keep that in mind if it happens again. I did a restore and that fixed it for now. Thanks again bud
