    What registry entries needed for pin/unpin


    Does anyone know exactly what registry entries that is needed for the menu-options " pin/unpin to startmenu " in the right-click (context-menu).
    As Ive written, they are missing. There is no pin/unpin-options. I have 3-4 more windows10 pc and they are working so I know exactly where they should appear and how to use them when they are there. But they are missing.
    I thought that if I know exactly what entries that is needed for those options to appear in the menu I could see if any is missing in my registry.

    I tried that manually too, and it did work anyway with this file.
    Dunno if this can help you, the steps that I did were the following:
    1- Downloaded the reg file
    2- Ran it, and accept everything
    3- Went to the start menu, and everything was the same (the problem wasnt solved)
    4- I ran the reg file again and accepted everything.
    5- Restarted the pc (without checking the start menu)
    6- Login and checking that the start menu worked again.
    Give it a try, i thought it wouldnt work either, but it did.

    Thanks, Sonicx and FigueroaMX for the good laugh.

    It's so easy to assume that if the name's not gender specific, it's just gotta be a male. I know, I got caught in the same trap of thinking a gal was a guy. And, of course, Wynona is gender specific.

    What I love about TenForums is that everyone here just accepts that we gals know what we're talking about when we type.

    Well, what can I say! I tried it again, this time without checking the menu, just run it and restart windows....wait for it, wait for it.... it worked. I have no idea nwhy it didnt work when I did it manually... but who cares. Thank you sonicx!
