    Assuming what you meant was : there is the "Pin to Taskbar" option but it does not work when you click at it.

    If that is the case, my suggestion is to do a system file check to look for corrupt files. It will try to do repair if any corrupt files are found.

    Right click at Start button > click Command Prompt (Admin) > at the flashing prompt, copy/paste this.......
    sfc /scannow

    > press Enter.
    It will take quite sometime.
    When finished, it will give you one of the 3 reports...............(paraphrasing)
    1. No integrity violation.
    2. Found corrupt files and repair successful.
    3. Found corrupt files but unable to repair.

    If the report is #1, your solution lies elsewhere.
    If the report is #2, check if your problems have been resolved.
    If the report is #3, use this method................
    In the same Command Prompt (Admin) windows, copy and paste this command...........

    This might help:'s Windows Repair (All in One), after downloading, boot into Safe Mode with Networking, for now, uncheck all except items 26 & 27. Restart patiently twice. If still no go, try again w/26 & 27, this time add system files association, system files registration. Restart patiently twice. I say patiently because Windows has to take its time to smooth itself out.
