Windows 10: Can not pin Microsoft Edge to taskbar Solved

    Can not pin Microsoft Edge to taskbar


    I tried right clicking on the file and shortcut but it only says Unpin from Start, and also tried dragging and dropping, but just shows a error symbol on my mouse and takes file back to its position on the desktop. It just randomly disappeared from my taskbar and was left on my desktop one day when I was logging in, and I can't get it back on the taskbar.

    Hello Silcri, and welcome to Ten Forums. :)

    If you like, you can "Pin to taskbar" the Microsoft Edge shortcut created in the tutorial below.

    Did you go to Start screen and tried it there ?
    I think by default, Edge tile is on the start screen > right click at it > click Pin to taskbar

    Click image for larger version.

    That's odd. When I tried that before I posted the thread, it didn't work. But now when I tried it after looking at your review, it works. Well, atleast I have it now
