You're most welcome Crossnet. I'm happy to hear that you got it sorted.

Folder sharing issues can be posted in the "Network & Sharing" forum area.

Hello Crossnet,

I suppose it depends on the program or method it/you used to do so. Usually when you removed the IsShortcut entry (improper XP method for Windows 7) in the registry, the results are immediate. I'm just happy that you got it sorted.

An additional thing to check in the registry: Go to "HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\Explorer". If "NoPinningToTaskbar" exists there, delete it.

Enable Pinning again

In our company this policies are in place:
Code:
[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\Explorer]
"NoPinningToTaskbar"=dword:00000001
"TaskbarNoPinnedList"=dword:00000001
I tried the following RunKeys with this line:
"C:\Windows\regedit /s C:\_D\sources\pc\registry\pin.reg"
where pin.reg has set both values = 0.

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run]
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run]
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\Explorer\Run][HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\RunServices][HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\RunServices]

I also tried with a task at "System StartUp"

When I log on or restart the machine the keys are set OK, but the pinning is only possible after a new/next LogOn.

So where should I place the "C:\Windows\regedit /s C:\_D\sources\pc\registry\pin.reg" or what else do I have to do, to have the pinnend elements already at the first LogOn

Hello 5ggggg,

You could also create a .bat file to do this, and have the .bat file restart explorer instead of having to log out/in or restart. This way you could have the .bat file run at startup instead.
