    Cannot pin some shortcuts to taskbar


    Hi everyone. I'm having a problem, which I have no idea why it's happening. I recently installed Windows 10, and everything was fine until I started installing my programs and wanted to pin the ones I use most to the taskbar.

    Some of them can be pinned to the taskbar, but others can't for some reason. Even though they have the option "Pin to taskbar" when I right click, nothing happens after I click it, they don't get pinned. I have tried all methods described in this article.

    This is a screenshot of my desktop with all icons that can be pinned to the taskbar in green, and the ones that can't be pinned in red (examples: Steam, AIMP, CCleaner, Word). Note that "metro" apps can be added without any problem. Also, I didn't have this issue in Windows 8/8.1.

    And here examples of the methods I have tried.

    (right click from taskbar after opening the program)

    Any ideas? I would very much appreciate any help.

    Ok, I found that this happened because of removing the shortcut arrows.

    Don`t use your desktop to pin icons to the taskbar, use your start menu list.
