    That's strange. If it's a shortcut to a normal program, it should have context menu entries such as "Uninstall" and "Open File Location".
    I believe that I'm onto something, but I'll verify it before suggesting it to you.

    Some other forum posters and I also have this problem. Pinning and unpinning does nothing until a reboot or restarting the explorer.exe process.

    I have this same problem, which I discovered when "pin to start" didn't seem to work. But I don't have it on another computer running Windows 10 that I had updated from the Technical Preview. Anyone know why pin to start needs a reboot to show results?

    Restarting explorer.exe is a quick fix that's meant to be temporary. The problem just disappeared for me and now everything works fine. Sorry I can't tell you what fixed it, I didn't do anything :/

    I had/have the same issue, are you running Kaspersky? There is an issue with Kaspersky, that breaks the start menu, there are aware, but not sure how long until a fix will be out.

    You'll also notice that while KIS is starting pinning/unpinning works correctly and then as soon as app finishes starting (after around 1 minute) then the issue appears
    This is a PITA but restarting Explorer process is fine for now I guess
