    Taskbar Auto-Pin Intrusion

    I'm setting up a new laptop with Windows 10 and have taskbar pinning issue. The system sets up with My Documents and Internet Explorer pinned to the taskbar. When I unpin them and reboot the system they reappear again. Very annoying and I haven't found a way to stop this intrusion yet. Any help you can provide would be super!

    Hello JFunk, and welcome to Ten Forums. :)

    You might see if resetting and clearing your pinned apps on the taskbar may help. You'll have to manually "Pin to taskbar" anything you wanted afterwards though.

    Thanks for the tip! I ran the bat file to reset the taskbar and it actually brought the unwanted Windows apps back.
