    file explorer not in taskbar


    This is the second time I have posted about the same problem. I can't move file explorer to the task bar. I tried to move it by right clicking on start, then left click on file explorer the menu I get that way just says "pin to start" and more, when I click on more all that is there is don't show with this list, if I left click the start button and then left click file explorer the menu only says "pin to start". I am at a loss, I have had one problem after another with Windows 10 and considering going back to Windows 7. I have tried to revert back to windows 7 from windows 10 but that failed, the only other option I have is to format the hard drive and reload Windows 7. I understand by doing that I will get the Windows 10 10 upgrade icon in the right hand corner of the task bar. How do I get rid of that?

    My file explorer went in when it upgraded from 8.1
    When you click on file explorer does it show at all unpin form taskbar
    Because mine does.
    Have you run SFC /scannow from Command Prompt
    Here is how to do it

    To start with I'll just show you how to get the File Explorer pinned to the task bar. Then we can move on to your other questions.

    Type File explorer in the search box
    Right Click on the File explorer item and you will be able to select pin to task bar

    I tried to pin file explorer to the task bar by typing file explorer in the search box and I can either sync with other apps or go to the web. If I right click on either one nothing happens, I get no menu or anything. When I type it into the search box the other thing I noticed is that below best match it is not listed with desktop apps below it, the only thing I can do is sync it or go the the web.

    I just remembered something else, Windows 10 crashed and it was after I hit the reset button on my tower and everything finished that I noticed that the file explorer icon in the task bar was missing. I ran DISM and it came back that no corruption was found. I am going to run SFC next.

    I ran SFC and got message that everything is OK,no problems. Also got no problems found when ran DISM. How do I proceed from here?
