When a shortcut is placed in the taskbar one doesn't get that dialog when right-clicking.
I know you already solved your problem, but you can get that dialog by right clicking on

the Explorer Icon on the taskbar then right clicking on Windows Explorer and selecting Properties.

Just to clarify:
  • Right click on the Windows Explorer icon on the Taskbar
  • Right click on the Windows Explorer in the Jump List
  • Select Properties

"Shift + Right click" on the Taskbar icon offers a different set of options.

Unpin windows explorer,
