I Can't Pin to Taskbar


After having used a manager to remove shortcut arrows I can no longer pin to task bar.

Program trial expired and I had to remove the app.

How can I add : IsShortcut registry value , back so I may regain ability to pin to task bar?

Hello Sands,

You might see if only restoring the shortcut arrows may allow you to afterwards. If not, then you can try a System Restore using a restore point dated before you made these changes, or do a repair install.

Hope this helps,
