Hello Short, and welcome to Seven Forums.

It sounds like something may be corrupted. Let's see if resetting the pinned taskbar items may help.
  • First, make note of the icons you wanted to keep on the taskbar, to make it easier to pin them back when finished since they will all be removed.
  • Download the attached BAT file below.
  • Right click on the downloaded BAT file and click on Run as administrator.
  • This will reset and remove all pinned taskbar icons.
  • Now, manually pin the icons you wanted back to the taskbar.
Hope this helps,
Shawn

I have an item on my taskbar that I want to unpin. I get no menu popping up when I left click the button, and it works fine when I right click it, I just don't want it there anymore. I tried going into the file that contains the shortcuts, and it doesn't appear in there. I have tried restarting numerous times. What can I do???

Hello Moshe, and welcome to Seven Forums.

Normally you would right click on a pinned taskbar icon and click on "Unpin this program from taskbar" to remove it from the taskbar.

Could you post a screenshot showing this to help see what may be wrong?
