cant unpin deleted dummy exe

Hey guys, here's the problem: tried to do this 'trick': How To Pin Folders In Windows 7 Taskbar | Next of Windows

After i pinned the .exe and changed the icon and the target, i deleted the exe from desktop.
Now i cant even right click n the exe file on taskbar. i also cant find it anywhere in the pc, so i cant manually unpin it.

Thx in advance

Hello m3Lt3D, and welcome to Seven Forums.

See if you may be able to delete the pinned item after recreating or restoring the deleted .exe file on your desktop again.

If that doesn't help, then see if restarting the PC may be able to sort it.

If not, then you could use the tutorial below to reset and clear all items pinned on the taskbar. You'll of course have to re-pin anything you wanted back to the taskbar afterwards though.
Taskbar Pinned Items - Reset and Clear in Windows 7
In the future, Option One in the tutorial below should work better to "Pin to taskbar" a folder.
Taskbar - Pin or Unpin a Folder
Hope this helps, :)
