Windows 7: Can't customize windows taskbar as i could

Can't customize windows taskbar as i could

This problem is related to adding opened windows/programmes in the taskbar.

So, I added "My Computer", "My Documents", "Recycle Bin", etc, all in the taskbar. They all regrouped into one single icon in the taskbar - "Windows Explorer" icon.
Though, I was able to right click on it and see all the folders I had added to the taskbar (those i said before).

Thing is: now I can't.

I would appreciate if you could help me figure this out. I hope I've been clear about my problem.

Sincere thanks, Tomás

Non of your suggestions worked... I can't singly pin either User Files or Recycle Bin or any other Document Folder, once I pin one of them, they're all already pinned as Windows Explorer.

Actually, I think this didn't use to happen.

Thanks for the suggestions though.

Haha! Great news, I made it!

All I had to do was Drag all the icons from the folders I wanted pinned and so no i can right click on the Windows Explorer icon and they all show up.

Thanks for the help, you kind of led me to the solution!
