Get unpin feature back on Windows XP Start button list?

Windows XP.. I need help please.
Hello.. I don't really know where to start with my question.. so here goes.

I used to be able to click on my Start button.. saw the programs I wanted Pinned there..
if I wanted to remove any one I could right click on it and un-pin it .. not that doesn't work..

How can I get the un-pin feature back on my Windows XP Start button list ?
Thanks much for any help on this matter.
