    In Start menu I right clicked and chose Pin to Taskbar. But I believe it's enough to just right click the icon where ever you have it and choose

    A right click in the start menu does not , in this instance, offer me that option?

    I did try that at first. Also tried a couple of alternative methods with no success.

    I am more interested, now, in why, unlike other readers, (?) I do not have the option to pin to taskbar.

    That is weird, even Win8 has that. One more thing to try, open up Bill's All Apps screen and see if you have the option on one of those shortcuts...
    Does it make a difference if one uses an Admin account or Standard, I wouldn't think so but that's how I troubleshoot.

    No misunderstanding. I have that option in all my other programs, be it 8 or 10, but not for this particular shortcut. When I read in your post that you had used it, I started down this track

    I've just been playing around with it and changed the name of one of it's shortcuts(got rid of the tilde) until I renamed ALL it's shortcuts, I temporarily lost the Pin to Taskbar option. I believe it was in the Start menu folder where it happened.
