    Anniversary update, remove Edge from taskbar


    Does anybody know how to get rid of the Edge shortcut that has been placed on the task bar? I don't want that thing there but unfortunately it cannot be "unpinned".

    You must have another issue, I can unpin anything, first check that your taskbar isn't locked. Right click on it ...

    I can unpin anything except Start, Cortana, and Task View...Taskbar locked or Unlocked. Try the method in Shawn's tutorial here:

    Nevermind, I found a way (through "unpin from task bar" in Classic Shell).

    Good! Still might want to check out that tutorial, you may have other issues. Classic Shell has a new version with Anniversary Update enhancements... version 4.3.0 Get it if you don't already have it...
