    Clear "Pin suggested" list in People Bar

    Does anybody know how to clear the "Pin suggested" list on the "People bar"?

    Contacts are added to the "Pin suggested" list once you've pinned and unpinned them. But there seems to be no obvious way to remove them from that list.

    After playing around with this feature and pinning and unpinning many dummy contacts, it's rather annoying to see them in the "Pin suggested" list when you click on the "My People" icon in the taskbar.

    Thanks topgundcp,

    but I meant to clear the "Pin suggested" list when you click on the People button, not hide or turn off the People button itself.

    Thanks Josey Wales,

    I can pin and unpin People contacts to the taskbar without problems, but these contacts will still show up on the "Pin suggested" list. It's this list I want to clear, because some contacts or double and some are dummy contacts. It's not that big of a deal, but it's rather annoying to have them suggested to me.

    So after playing around a bit more, the only solution seems to be to delete all contacts from either Skype, Mail or People app directly, so they won't show up on the "Pin suggested" list. That's rather harsh.

    In setting this People App has two options, reset and that give you a green check mark but does nothing and there is uninstall which also does nothing. Unless this People App can be tied in to my Office 2016 Outlook Contacts, it is pretty useless to me. I think it needs a lot more work.

    Thank you alkaufmann,

    I didn't know about the reset function. That would have also solve my problem I guess.

    I wonder, if you set up your Office 2016 Outlook account on the Mail app, wouldn't you be able to tie your contacts to the "My people" app? But then again, I think you meant tying directly from Outlook 2016. Yeah, I think since it's not an UWP app that is not possible, or not yet.
