Alright, I recently downloaded and installed Java SE JDK and JavaFX. I fussed with it for about 2 hours and got it working by editing the path variable and such. Satisfied with my work, I shut it down and went to bed. This morning, I turn my laptop on to see that Skype has an I/O disk error and Google Chrome thinks some wierd stuff happened and I need to re-sync with a custom passphrase or something. I uninstalled Java SE and FX, rolled up my sleeves, and got to work. I solved the Skype issue by removing EVERYTHING Skype-related and re-installing (my skype skips frames every 2 seconds), but the Google chrome issue still stands.
But that's for the Google Chrome forums if such a thing exists. My issue is that if I right click my Windows Explorer icon on my taskbar, only Windows Explorer and Unpin from Taskbar exist, my pinned locations and recent items are gone. And in Right click Taskbar -> Properties -> Start Menu tab -> Privacy, both of the options are checked. Can someone help me?
