Pin This PC to TaskBar

Post by Simplelife123abc » Sun Jul 16, 2017 5:32 pm

Hi,

Windows 10

Does anyone know how to pin This PC to TaskBar.

A simple operation, however, i will explain as follows:

I have two pc's and both running Windows 10

On first pc:
I somehow managed to get This PC in the start menu and then I proceed to right click the This PC from the start menu to pin to TaskBar and did so without any issues, since there was a 'pin to taskbar' available. Thus now that I have pinned this to the taskbar and on viewing the icon in taskbar it is the same icon as that of what the image in start menu looks like, a blue desktop window computer.

In any case, when clicking on the blue icon on taskbar, a yellow folder opens which is the 'This PC' and however opens at the far right end of my taskbar icons. Thus i can press the blue icon repeatedly and another folder 'This PC' opens in the same place as the first yellow one opened. Which is all fine and the way i want it, however the following is strange:

Second pc:
1) I open This PC and right click on the left side in the list named This PC and i select pin to start.
2) I then proceed to right click the blue icon This PC from the start menu so as to pin to TaskBar as i did with the first pc, however there is no pin to taskbar.

I appreciate some help on this, as I am banging my head trying to recreate this on the second PC, I can't remember how I did it the first time, as explained above of the first PC.

Hi bjm,

The first pc has been updated with creators update and so has the second pc, however my first pc is still able to achieve this.

Your answer may have merit, because what springs to my mind is maybe the fact that i had this in place before the creator update, that it may have now stuck with it. However this is a maybe.

I would be very surprised if there is no way of achieving such even with the updated creator.

If maybe this issue can't be dealt with here, maybe a suggestion to whom i can ask this question to get a fix.
