    Unable to Add 'Pin to Start' to Context Menu - Help


    I teried a registry hack that adds 'pin to start' to the context menu. I created a reg file and added this:

    [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\*\shellex\ContextMenuHandlers\PinToStartScreen]
    @="{470C0EBD-5D73-4d58-9CED-E91E22E23282}"


    But it doesnt show up. And I get an error message after I try to merge which says this:

    Click image for larger version.

    Hey mate, :)

    If you haven't already, see if merging the downloadable .reg file in step 2 of the tutorial below may help.
