Odd Problem When Re-Moving a Program Pinned to Taskbar

Everyone, Peace Be Upon U

I have this weird problem whenever i want to move a program pinned to taskbar let's say to the left the order of all programs that pinned to taskbar is changing, See the example below:
1 2 3 4 5 (each number represent a program pinned to taskbar)
Let's assume 1 is the program to be re-moved, when i re-move 1 to 3 it became like this:
3 1 2 5 4
I hope that i explained the problem well

My Best Regards

Hello Gilgamesh,

You should be able to drag and drop a pinned icon on the taskbar left or right in any order within the other pinned icons.

Yes i know but the problem is that i can't make the order which i want and i think it's related to a missing or corrupted registry because of a third party program.

I wish that i make it more clear to you.

No worries. Please go ahead and post some screenshots showing this to see if anything may stand out as why this is happening.

Are you sure that these are pinned programs and not any of them toolbars on the taskbar?

Sorry for the late reply & sorry i can't take screenshots anymore 'cause the problem was solved by restoring the system to a point before installing a third party program, the problem happened when i uninstalled this program & i think a certain registry entry was removed somehow, How? Dunno but it was a good

Thank U for your time & concern

My Kind Regards
