    Some things in Windows Explorer won't Pin to Start Menu despite option


    There is the option on many things in windows expolorer, if you right click, "Pin to start" .. for instance.. say you have a folder you want to pin a shortcut to.. you right click that.. pin to start.. it should then appear in the start menu.. well on my system it doesnt..

    I have to manually make a shortcut, then copy that to the programdata or local users windows start menu folder for it to then be pinnable to start via the start menu..

    I think it must be a bug.. just wondering if others have ran into this?

    I've had to do the same thing. Either bug or most likely incomplete release

    Just to make sure you are looking in the right place. Please ignore if you already knew this.

    • When you right-click on something and select "pin to start" Windows will create a metro-style tile.
    • The tile gets placed at the bottom of the metro/tile section of the start screen.
    • You may have to scroll down to find the new tile at the bottom of the metro/tile area



    Right-clicking and selecting "pin to start" is not meant to make any changes to the start menu.

    Speaking for me, yes I do get that but I am running across many instances where it says pin and it doesn't post to anything.
