hi Brink, out of curiosity I've just stupidly unchecked the 'store and display..' start menu items options..

I lost the start menu pins, so I'm readding them....

I found a Restore_Pin_to_Start_Menu.reg, and checked my reg and already have 'Default' Start Menu Pin @
HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\*\shellex\ContextMenuHandlers\{a2a9545d-a0c2-42b4-9708-a0b2badd77c8}


I'm TRYING to add Pin to start Menu to the context menu available from taskbar (running program) entries, specifically so I can pinToStartMenu my Control Panel...




is this possible? (sure I had this working before)

Thanks!!
