Windows 7: Red "Pin" icon missing from quick launch

23 Jun 2016   #1

Windows 7 64 bit
Red "Pin" icon missing from quick launch

I ran an old 'video demo' program the other day and it obviously didn't like my modern system !

It mucked up the screen a fair bit while running.

I lost the quick launch app switcher icon which I've put back now, but there was also a red "Pin" icon there as well which has gone.

I've Googled it but found nothing.
The context menu pin feature works fine as does unpinning a pinned icon. It's not a pinning issue as such.
Perhaps the attached pic will make it clearer.
It's a Toshiba laptop too so maybe it's a Toshiba specific feature ?

Anyone ?

"Quick Launch" icon for the desktop?
Old Vista habits die hard. I always placed a "Desktop" icon in the quick launch toolbar so that I could instantly close all windows and show the desktop. In 7, I have found that right clicking the taskbar will offer a "Show the desktop" choice which does the same thing. But, is there a way to...
