The above options do not apply when I right click my username....I get:

OPEN
RESTORE DEFAULT LIBRARIES
COPY
SHOW ON DESKTOP

Odd because it worked before....I have tried all the usual, including system restore, adware, etc....

ah-ha.....I was able to pin the Documents folder to the task bar finally using the above....brain cloud?
