    Pin File Explorer to Taskbar -- Multiple Monitor Situation


    When I use the normal "Pin to Taskbar" process, the File Explorer shortcut icon appears on the taskbars of only two of my three monitors. All other taskbar icons (shortcuts, running programs, etc.) appear on all three monitors. I would appreciate knowing how to get the missing icon on the third monitor, as that's the one I use most.

    It won't go there by right clicking and selecting 'pin to taskbar'?

    Pin File Explorer to Taskbar -- Multiple Monitor Situation


    When I right-click "Pin to Taskbar' the File Explorer icon DOES go to two of my three monitors. It's the third monitor that I'd like to see it on.

    Naive question (I only have one monitor). What happens if you do the pinning on the 3rd monitor?

    I know of no way to specify a specific monitor(s).

    I tried to drag/drop a File Explorer shortcut icon from my desktop to the taskbar but it behaved the same way, i.e., Fike Explorer appeared only on the same two monitors' taskbars.

    I'm curious as to why you need three monitors? Are you watching, navigating or just trying to sync?

    Lots of work -- three monitors helps w/ wide spreadsheets, multiple documents, etc.

    In 'settings' - personalization, do you have multiple displays turned on for all taskbars?
