I awoke the other day to find my computer at the log in screen. Apparently there was an update overnight and the computer restarted. When I tried to type in my password I found that the computer was frozen. I restarted it and when it came back the task
bar with my pinned programm icons was gone. I cannot figure out how to fix it. I tried a system rstore to a few days before but that did not bring back the pinned icons. I came up with a temp fix but would rather have it working like it should. It is a fresh
install of Win7....
If the program is already running, right-click the program's button on the taskbar (or drag the button toward the desktop) to open the program’s Jump List, and then click Pin this program to taskbar.
– OR –
If the program isn't running, click Start, find the program’s icon, right-click the icon, and then click Pin to Taskbar.
You can also pin a program by dragging the program's shortcut from the desktop or Start menu to the taskbar. Additionally, if you drag the shortcut of a file, folder, or website to the taskbar, and the associated program isn't already pinned
there, then that program is pinned to the taskbar and the item is pinned to the program’s Jump List.
