Preferred Solution: Cant pin back the unpin apps to taskbar

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/directdownload.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

OK, here goes my first post.
I just restored a HP dv5 laptop to factory original. In setting it up the way I want, I noticed that Windows Media Player was pinned to the task bar. I unpinned it but it returns when the computer is restarted.
I looked in the start folder, found it empty. Checked the Run & Run Once sections of the registry and found nothing related to the media player. I am at the limit of my ability at this point. So I ask my question finally.
How do I prevent Windows Media Player from being repeatedly pinned to the task Bar?

A:Pin/unpin apps to taskbar problem in Win 7/64 Pro

Hi and welcome to SevenForums,
I know Factory restore sounds like a great thing to do but it's not all that hot as you would expect because of all of the now expired trial software commonly know as junkware,
if you truly want a Fresh start see these for the best chance at a great re-install of windows 7,
This is most likely your best bet because computer manufactures stopped a long time ago from shipping reinstall disks with computers,

I have somehow pined a ULR link to my taskbar. I have been trying to remove it for a month or so now, my google searches and forum searches have turned up nothing.

If I right click it nothing happens, if I left click it it opens the webpage.

I have looked in the taskbar pinned folder and it do not show up there.

All of the other pinned items, can be unpinned by right clicking like normal.

Any ideas on how to remove it?

Any app that is pinned to the taskbar takes a few seconds (varies from around 2 to 5), before they respond, if I run the same app from a shortcut on the desktop, or the start menu they respond instantly.

Windows file explorer is a good example, run it from the taskbar and it can take up to 10 secs to open, but open it from the start menu or a desktop short cut and it will open instantly.

The only one I've noticed to open instantly from the taskbar is 'Store'.

This is a fresh installation of Win 8.1 with the spring update, plus all other updates, on a SSD. Does this happen with anyone else?

I have a SAN administration tool I use that launches a Java app. The desktop shortcut that runs it looks like this:

C:\Windows\System32\javaws.exe "C:\Users\gm.KTC\AppData\LocalLow\Sun\Java\Deployment\cache\6.0\14\391de28e-4bf1d62f"

When I pin this shortcut to the taskbar and launch it, I get a second instance of the icon in the taskbar (shown as running), and the pinned icon never changes to a "running" icon. If I launch another instance of the app (Shift-Click the non-running pinned icon) it will pair up both running instances and show me both when I hover over the running icon, so that part works, but it appears that the mechanism that links a running app to the taskbar gets confused by the shortcut.

Is there a awy to make it so Windows 8.1 does not show any of the Modern Apps in the taskbar?

For instance, I like to keep NotePad8, Weather and some others running, but I don't want them taking up Taskbar realestate since (as far as I'm aware at least), those Modern apps will remain open until I close them for good by moving to the upper left part of the screen.

So, if anyone knows of any methods I could try to do this, I would be all ears! I suspect there's probably something I could do in the registry, and if there is, maybe someone could attach a .reg file for me.

I'm also attaching a screencap of what I'm talking about.

I just noticed something. I hardly ever use Store Apps but I had cause to look at a couple just now.
The Task Bar, which I'd noticed previously when using Store Apps would hide itself after a moment, and could be recalled with a mouse movement downwards, is now on screen permanently.

is that normal? I like it like this! The title bar does vanish and reappear as expected.

EDIT: I just did a little reading and see it's not just me. I also have the desktop 'drop shadow icon text' that just won't go away even after registry hacks.

A:Taskbar remains on screen even in Store Apps.

Hello Mark,

Since the August 12th 2014 Windows Updates, the taskbar will on some PCs always show on the Start, apps, and PC settings screens if you do not have the taskbar set to auto-hide and you open the Start screen by pressing the Start button on the taskbar while on your desktop. If you multiple screens, then this doesn't apply.

If you do not have the taskbar set to auto-hide or you open the Start screen by pressing the Windows key, you will not see the taskbar on the Start, apps, and PC settings screens unless you open the taskbar using step 5 below.

I m using windows 8 at home and at work.
I pinned many apps to my startbar at home and at work.
At my workplace I have to remap these apps to the taskbar everyday. They don t stay located after logoff or reboot of the pc.
I already contacted my IT department but they don t support Windows 8 only certain apps we use.
I know this forum is not for workrelated questions but I loose everyday 20 minutes because of this so I m getting really irritated.
I m not on FATCLIENT. I login to a Citrix Client.
I have requested an Admin account for the domain so I can make changes myself and start troubleshooting.
We have a citrix support line but these guys log tickets but can t seem to resolve the issue.
Maybe this issue is unresolvable ?
Suggestions are welcome

I like the Windows 7 task bar the way it is. I want to have only large icons instead of a long tail of icons and text. So I don't need to unmix all the icons. But I run both Firefox and Aurora. For those who don't know, Aurora is the night build of the same Firefox. Windows, somehow detects them as the same thing, which they're not, and stacks the icons. Now I use the two browsers for different purposes and I would like to tell Windows 7 task bar: Aurora is something different, like Opera or Chrome and I would like it displayed as such. Could you help?

A:How to unmix the taskbar icons for symilar apps?

i dont use aurora so bare with me, are the taskbar icons for ff and aurora both the same,if so is it possible to change the icon for aurora, in the properties panel.

edit; on reflection this wont actually address the stacking problem.

Hi.. I have been having this problem for 4 days now. Ive been trying to find all solutions related to fix this problem. In the end. I have just fixed the PC SETTINGS and STORE APP. As of today all of the apps have been repaired and installed via STORE but the problem still persist. Even though they have been repaired and installed. They can't open on maximized mode. Can anyone have some possible solutions for this type of problem? Btw. I have already made this steps.

1) Chkdsk /f /r
2.) Reregister Store
3.) Scan for virus via ESET NOD32
4.) Almost all of the options on the thread Apps and Tiles Not Working or Responding: Fix in Windows 8
5.) sfc /scannow
6.) Fixed problems via Advanced System Care Ultimate 7
7.) Fixed problems via CCleaner.

Now the only problem i have is the apps can't be opened.

I was unpinning many apps from my start screen. Now when I try to run an app (such as Computer, or Control Panel) it creates an entry on the desktop taskbar, but not on the desktop.

I can't run anything on this Win8.0 desktop, except for IE. The only thing I can do with the taskbar icon is close the window.

Hi All

I am experiencing a weird issue on an XP machine I use for work.

Despite having the windows taskbar 'locked', all my apps open up with their minimise/maximise/close buttons hidden behind this taskbar.

I am one of those who choose to locate the taskbar at the top of the screen rather than on the bottom.

So, if I want to move an app, or resize the window - quite simply, I can't do this without first moving the system taskbar to the left or right position - which then gives me access to the top bar of any running application. I can then access and thus move/adjust the application position.

Does anyone know why I might be experiencing this weird behavior and if so, how I reset it back to default please?

I have tried turning the machine off and restarting - to no avail.

Many thanks all.

So lets say you have a program open, and its not pinned to the taskbar, calculator for example. You close it, and the animation for the programs icon on the taskbar disappears smoothly. Now, if I pin the calculator onto the taskbar and open it (or any current taskbar pinned item) and close it, the icon disappears with a sort of a chunky, or "blocky" animation leaving just the normal taskbar icon.

My question is, should this happen or is my Windows install lagging somehow? Can anyone recreate this and see if you get a similiar result? Simply, non taskbar pinned apps icons seem to close smoother, while ones that are pinned dont really have an animation and just close with maybe 3 different frames.

A:Quick Question About Closing Apps/ Taskbar (Could someone test this? )

Hello Keyes,

This would be the Animations in the taskbar visual effects setting. It's normal for there to be a slight delay with the animation. If it's to long or jagged, then you may have something else running that's using a lot of resources causing a temporary longer delay for this.

If you like, you could turn off (uncheck) this setting to have them be instant instead.

Hello Synomenon,

By default, any opened app or window will be to the right of all pinned apps on the taskbar unless it is a pinned app, then it will show opened wherever the pinned app is already at on the taskbar.

If you like, you are also able to drag the pinned apps in any arrangement on the taskbar though.

Hope this helps some,

Hi everyone,
I have just started using one of Lenovo's hybrids, the Yoga 2 11, after using for a while a previous model (IdeaPad Yoga 11s).
Windows 8.1 on both.
Now, my new Lenovo surprised me with an interestingly annoying feature - it won't allow me to pin Windows apps to the taskbar. I've tried from the Start Apps menu and from everywhere. Only, I didn't try clicking on the app icon when it is running and shown on the taskbar - simply because it won't: there's no way to access the taskbar while an app is open unless returning to the desktop.
I'm quite a beginner but I don't understand why there are such differences when the operating system is the very same. All of this is referred to while in Laptop mode so I can't even see how Lenovo could have an influence on it.

If anyone out there ever had such an issue...

The modern apps are full screen in Windows 8.1, and will cover the taskbar. You can use step 3 or 5 to open the taskbar while you have a modern app open to see it.

After latest update, windows 10 keeps changing my default apps back. I can't use my favorite apps as default. How can I deal with it?

Hi,
i've a problem with some Metro Apps (e.g. News 360 and Reader). When I start this apps, i just get a flickering screen and some secounds later i get kicked out of windows back to the start screen.

I captured a vid about this problem, you can find it here:

https://skydrive.live.com/redir.aspx...FpYiZTQATpf_eA

Most of the preinstalled apps work fine (Store, Bing Weather, ...), also no problems on the "old" desktop. But every app from the store and the Reader app flickering around.
Do you have any suggestions how to fix this?

I use a Thinkpad T420.
Intel Core i5-2520M
8 GB Ram
Intel HD Graphics 3000 in processor, and
NVIDIA NVS? 4200M

A:Metro Apps flickering - Back to Logon

Just installed News 360 and it's working as it should for me. I have, however, noticed that if you try to start some apps just after logging on that you get sent back to the Metro screen. The solution seems to be just to give it a little more time.

I have windows installed on a SSD which is the C drive. I have all my apps and games installed on a HD which is the E drive. I started the windows 10 install and it said it could not save my apps and settings. I just re-installed because I got the SSD and I would hate to have to go through all of that again, not to mention hundreds of GB of game install on steam.

Is there an app that can backup the windows portion of the apps, and not the data files themselves?

Thank you for your help.

A:Back up system that spreads multiple drives? SSD for win - HD for apps

"Backup" can mean different things to different people.

It might mean simply copying certain folders and their contents with the mouse or keyboard. In that sense, you can backup whatever you want, without any application. File by file, folder by folder. There are applications that can do this in an automated fashion.

But typically, "backup" means everything on a partition (by "imaging") and there may be multiple partitions on a drive--including hidden files, Windows if it's on the partition, installed apps, installed games, and pictures of your cat. In this case, you can't pick and choose what you want to back up within a given partition. It's all or none, partition by partition. The usual suspects include Macrium, Aomei, Acronis, Paragon, and EaseUS.

Going from memory---I think certain (advanced?) versions of certain imaging applications at least claim to allow you to select what you want to include or exclude when cloning and also possibly when making an image file. I'm not at all sure how well this works in practice.

All I can suggest is that you pound Google or the web sites of the major backup application suppliers: Macrium, Aomei, Paragon, Acronis, EaseUS, etc. Drill into their capabilities and then hope you can find someone who has actually tried to use that functionality. Possibly wonderful. Possibly hopeless.

I am running under Win and having a strange USB com problem that offended switching apps by its back?

Hello Everyone,

I usually reboot my computer once to three times a year. Every time I reboot my computer and reinstall windows 8 and then resign in with my Microsoft I.D. that I use for my computer it never remembers or syncs the apps that I have downloaded from the Microsoft Store app.

My question is, are any of the apps that I download or purchase from the Microsoft Store app remembered, stored or synced with the Microsoft Store in the cloud etc or do I have to redownload everything again and again and again every time I reinstall windows 8?

Thank you.

A:Win8 apps don't redownload or sync back after reboot

Hello mrje,

All apps that you install from the Store while signed in a Microsoft account will be remembered and listed in Your apps in the Store while signed in to the Store with that specific Microsoft account. This will be the same as OPTION ONE in the tutorial below. However, you will still have to download and install them again if you reinstall Windows 8.
Apps - Install Metro Apps from Windows 8 Store
Hope this helps,
Shawn

Occasionally a slight mouse movement mysteriously switches me from various apps back to the Desktop. If I nudge the mouse again, I'm back in the app (and any keystrokes or actions I took while thinking I was in the app, but the Desktop was displayed, still occurred in the app). This has happened in several apps, but not any Office apps, so I consider it a Win 10 issue (probably another switching feature that I really don't want or need). The mouse has also worked fine for years, and this problem arose after upgrading to Win 10. Any advice to get rid of this frequent annoyance would be greatly appreciated!!

Are you letting the mouse drift into the bottom right of the screen? Hover over the area at the far end of the taskbar and you'll get a Peek preview of the desktop (not switching, for that you need to click there). This behaviour is optional and can be turned on/off in the Taskbar Settings.

Hi I have just sold my Nokia 625 - the buyer has complained it is jumping to home screen when using apps/browser -
I'm assuming when they set up the phone (I sold it back to factory reset) it updated - are there "bugs" or anything else that would be doing thus ?

Easy one.

Go to search by the start menu.

Type clock

Then click on hide or show clock.

The icon which controls volume which used to be on the lower left corner of my taskbar has disappeared.
