    Pin/Unpin is missing from right click context menu


    Hi guys

    I reinstalled windows 10 on my laptop and after that the pin/unpin options is missing from the context menu (right click) to pin/unpin tiles from the startmenu.

    Any ideas?

    I might add that Ive tried uninstalling the antivirus (Malwarebytes) without any change in my problem.

    Ive read somewhere in this forum that some guy did some change in the registry that solved this, but unfortunattely he didnt say what change. And I cant get in touch with him now.

    Hi there,

    How about open the Start Menu > All apps > right click on any desired apps and try to pin/unpin from there.

    Well I wish it was that simple :) But as I wrote "the pin/unpin options is missing from the context menu (right click) to pin/unpin tiles from the startmenu."

    So that is my problem, those menu options are missing, only one option "more" is present.

    1st suggestion :
    Run a system file check to look for corrupt file. It will try to do repair if any found.

    Right click at Start button > click Command Prompt (Admin) > at the flashing prompt, copy/paste this.......
    sfc /scannow

    > press Enter.
    It will take quite sometime.
    When finished, it will give you one of the 3 reports...............(paraphrasing)
    1. No integrity violation.
    2. Found corrupt files and repair successful.
    3. Found corrupt files but unable to repair.

    If the report is #1, your solution lies elsewhere.
    If the report is #2, check if your problems have been resolved.
    If the report is #3, use this method................
    In the same Command Prompt (Admin) windows, copy and paste this command...........

    dism /online /cleanup-image /restorehealth

    > press Enter.
    Again it will take some time.

    Do you have the option to Pin to Start anywhere else in the system?

    I have seen a few right-click issues and lost ability to Minimize or Maximize/Restore windows when Tablet Mode is enabled, either inadvertently or accidentally.
