    Items don't stay pinned to explorer after reboot


    Hi guys.

    I upgraded my Vista Ultimate installation to Windows Seven Ultimate. I am using RTM version 7600.

    I have tried on several occasions to pin some folders to explorer. The pinning works fine and they will stay there until I reboot the machine, at which point when I right click the Windows Explorer icon on the taskbar, the pins have now disappeared? This is rather annoying as I use a number of different folders and on my old Vista installation I had taskbar shortcuts for each folder.

    Any help would be appreciated.

    Thanks
    Paul

    Do you use any programs like CCleaner to automatically clean the junk out of your system? Carefully review any settings in any programs you might use. I know in CCleaner, there is an option to clear jumplists.

    Welcome to SevenForums Paul
    Is this what you are seeing when you are pinning to explorer? I have tried to reproduce your problem but have not been able to. Might be a rule for the jump lists to remain pinned somewhere but where? Good luck to you with this and enjoy the Windows 7 ultimate install.

    This was exactly the problem Jonathan. I was running CCleaner on shutdown every time and it was clearing my jumplists. Thank you very much.
