Restore "pin-to-taskbar"
« on: December 28, 2014, 04:53:03 PM »
Today i found the pin-to-taskbar was missing when I right clicked on a program in windows 7. :(

I found this post by rusty jack which solved my problem  :D

To resolve the missing or lost “Open file location” entry, the IsShortcut registry value and the file associations for shortcuts has to be fixed.

    Run Registry Editor (regedit.exe).
    Navigate to the following registry key: HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\lnkfile
    Right click on the right pane, and select New -> String Value (REG_SZ) to create a new registry value.
    Name the new registry value as IsShortcut . No value data required.
    Restart the computer.

I know modifying the registry is not comfortable for everyone (even me),
but this was easy to do and it worked !!   :D ;) Thanks rusty
