Can not pin Microsoft Edge to taskbar

Question: Can not pin Microsoft Edge to taskbar

I tried right clicking on the file and shortcut but it only says Unpin from Start, and also tried dragging and dropping, but just shows a error symbol on my mouse and takes file back to its position on the desktop. It just randomly disappeared from my taskbar and was left on my desktop one day when I was logging in, and I can't get it back on the taskbar.

Hello Matthew, and welcome to Ten Forums.

You could do so by unpinning Microsoft Edge from the taskbar and Start menu, and setting whatever web browser you wanted to use instead as the default program instead.

https://www.tenforums.com/tutorials/5...dows-10-a.html



I have already chosen chrome to be my default browser and when I double click on an html file, it opens in chrome as I expect. However I still can't unpin Microsoft Edge from the taskbar as you suggest. When I right click on the edge icon in the taskbar this is what I see:

This is seriously messed up, since it is giving me a choice to pin Microsoft Edge to the taskbar. Why would it give me such a choice when it is already pinned to the taskbar @#$&!!

(By the way, the four icons to the left of my system tray were added by using the quicklaunch toolbar mechanism, but this does not seem related to the problem.)

What's more when I right click on every other icon in the taskbar, the menu presented includes an option to "unpin" the application from the taskbar. It almost seems that Microsoft is going out of its way to tell me what I want. Yet I haven't seen others complaining of this problem, so perhaps there is a problem with my windows 10 setup? I thought I may have an extra icon somewhere that I could delete, so I checked here:

Answer:Can't unpin Microsoft Edge from taskbar

Hello Paul, and welcome to Ten Forums.

Using the tutorial below to reset and clear taskbar pinned apps should do the trick, but you'll have to manually "Pin to taskbar" all the app you want back again afterwards.

When I right-click the Microsft Edge icon on either the Desktop or the Start Menu, I do not get the option to pin to the Taskbar, only the option to pin to Start Menu. Also, dragging the icon to the task bar gives an error symbol and does not work. However, other applications work just fine with the exception of Steam games.

Does anybody know a method to get Edge pinned to the taskbar?

Answer:How do you pin the Microsoft Edge icon to the taskbar?

Edge should be pinned to the task bar upon delivery of the OS to your machine.

Hello there! I purchased and upgraded to Microsoft Windows 10! Finally, right?

But anyways, I've spent the last few days customizing all my options and settings that I had back on Windows 8.1. Takes hours to do all that. Got all my settings saved as text with directions. Anyways, I've ran into a problem that seems difficult to fix. My version of Windows 10 is the Anniversary Edition, for what I've read and when I've downloaded it.

So there are two icons in the Taskbar that cannot seem to get unpinned; Microsoft Edge & Store. I right click on them, yet there is no unpin option (check the attached image). Is there any other workaround yet for removing those two icons at all? Some Registry edit or something?

Answer:Cannot Unpin Microsoft Edge & Store Icons From The Taskbar

I left the Store but did Unpin Edge from Taskbar on my Win10 Pro. I did put Internet Explorer on so wonder if that makes a difference? Also have Firefox and SeaMonkey there.

With the Windows 10 Fall Creators Update, you can pin your favorite websites to the taskbar and have the icon show up in the taskbar for instant access.

Here?s how to get started:


Simply head to the menu, select ?Pin this page to the taskbar,? and watch the site icon appear on your Windows taskbar!

Head over here to read more about all the new features in the Fall Creators Update, and have a great week!

I'd like to have the Microsoft Edge Icon on the taskbar again as the only way to access it at the moment is using the search field at the far left of the taskbar running along the bottom of the screen and for some reason this doesn't respect the settings I have. In particular, it searches using Bing rather than Google (in the settings I have specified that it should use Google).

Can someone please tell me how to create an icon for Edge on the taskbar?

Answer:Microsoft Edge Taskbar Icon disappeared after System Restore

Hi,
Welcome to the forum
The search box only uses Bing, I am not aware of any settings to change this, it is an MS search similar to how Google use Google Now which only works with google searches

For Edge on the taskbar, if you search for it and run it, when it appears on the taskbar can you right click it and select pin to taskbar
Alternatively Start Menu->All Apps then find Edge and right click and select pin to taskbar

Hello to all, This is my first post.
Today I found out that Google had limited its search service on Edge by MicrosoftInsider.es, and this happens
This is a great hoax, and also seems to make it or for two reasons:
1. Attempt of Stop of growth of Microsoft Edge
or 2. Google Revenge
What is the solution? This:
Press F12 (if you are on a laptop press Fn + F12), This open the F12 Tools
After go to Emulation, in Browser select or Google Chrome or Mozilla Firefox, and Solutionated.
Well, I hope to see their opinions and also see that users of Google in Edge make.

Hi I have a Edge 15 running Windows 7 Ultimate 64 Bit and Office 2007, it runs extended desktop via the Lenovo USB Replicator, every now and again the Taskbar stops responding to mouse clicks as well as anything on the external screen, the mouse moves about on both screens fine and clicking works on any apps open on the laptop screen, at first I thought mouse problem so swapped mouse but the problem stayed, in the end I brought up the Task Manager via CTRL ALT DELETE and killed explorer.exe then went to run and restarted it, I am then able to use it normally as well as the external screen. It happens about 2 or 3 times a week, I know its not a lot but its often enough that I'd like to know how to fix it! If anyone has any ideas that would be great. Mark

Answer:Edge 15 Taskbar problem

This usually happens when the shell is trying to access a resource that is busy (like a network drive or a CD-ROM). This is not related to your Thinkpad.. it's a Windows thing.

I am using a PowerShell script to add and remove icons to taskbar - users can run it. Basically it uses the PS verbs to pin or unpin. Works fine but I can't get rid of Edge.
$shell = New-Object -ComObject Shell.Application 


#Unpin Microsoft Edge
$folder = $shell.NameSpace((Join-Path ${env:Windir} 'SystemApps\Microsoft.MicrosoftEdge_8wekyb3d8bbwe'))
$item = $folder.parsename('MicrosoftEdge.exe')
$verb = $item.Verbs() | ? {$_.Name -eq 'Unpin from tas&kbar'}
if ($verb) {$verb.DoIt()}
Looking at articles it states the file location of Microsoftedge.exe to be as above but if you run the script above manually there is no verb to unpin so I'm pretty sure the icon is NOT from that exe. Moreover that icon has a white background. By hand you
can do an unpin from Taskbar so where is this icon located ???. I realise the icons are created with the profile, but that's the whole point of running it as the user so they can pin/unpin as needed via the script

Is there a fix?

Answer:Hide taskbar leaves an edge

My guess is: this is a video driver issue.

You can try to...
...re-install the same version that you have now
...install a newer version - if available

Hi, I'm searching for a way to keep the taskbar on top of windows without reserving the screen edge.

I have my taskbar on the top screen edge and would like the have maximized windows place their titlebar to the natural edge of the screen, not flush with the taskbar, thus allowing me to hide the title bar under the always-on-top taskbar, giving me more screen space.

I've noticed in other threads that some people are reporting this as a bug they wish to solve; for me it would be a useful feature.

thanks,

Answer:Allowing taskbar on top without reserving screen edge

Here's a look you can try;

Leave the Taskbar setting to Keep on Top (a misnomer but hey!).

Right click on the toolbars at the top click Customize and put the Full Screen button onto the Toolbar.

Left click it.

On my comp, that covers the Task bar until I cursor over it (hidden) BUT eliminates the Title bar, which is essentially what you want.

Hello everyone,

First post here and thanks for allowing me to be a part of the community!

My first question is while attempting to pin a website to the task bar in Edge I followed the directions and selected the "3 dots menu" and then selected "open with IE" option as instructed.

When I click on the webpage icon in the task bar the site indeed comes up but it is in Internet Explorer rather than Edge. Is there any way I can pin the site to the task bar and have it launch in Edge rather than IE? I understand it opens in IE because I opened the website in Edge and then told it to open with IE.

When I tried pinning the tab to the task bar in Edge I got the universal red circle with the line through it so I couldn't pin it unless I opened it in IE.

Ive noticed when I pin a website to the Start Menu that it will open in Edge. Is it not possible to have this happen by using the task bar?

Thanks so much for your help.

Appreciate interacting with you folks very much.

Hi All, I did an upgrade from Win7 HP 64 bit to Win 10 - I triggered it manually from the MS download. At first all was well, but then Edge locked up. I killed the appropriate processes in Task Manager, then rebooted. The PC basicall works, but some of the major bits of the interface do not:
The Edge & Store icons in the Taskbar are blank. Clicking where the Store button should be brings a message that 'This app can't open' and refreshing the PC might help fix it. The Edge button location does nothing.
The Start button or key also do nothing visible, the Search doesn't work either - so I can't get into Settings - Control Panel is accessible, but of course doesn't have the new Settings.
I booted from DVD - got into Repair, but it won't roll back to the previous version (which I did use on another PC to get back to Win7).
A system restore did complete, but hasn't fixed things. Also, trying to Reset the PC failed too. I also tried a new User account (which I found as a possible fix) - I had to do this via CMD - no good either.
So, before I do a clean install, is there anything else I can do?
Thanks in advance!

Answer:Win 10 broken - blank Edge, Store in Taskbar, Start not working at all

As we know reset would be like a clean install. Fact being if ever did want to go back to old OS,since having issues now even trying rollback. Through advanced options it did not work either, rollback to Win 7 ? https://www.tenforums.com/tutorials/4...s-windows.html

This is a long shot, but try system file checker and DISM.

Admin Command prompt copy paste and press enter, let it finish
sfc /scannow

Same open command prompt, copy and paste this, press enter let it finish
Dism /Online /Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth

reboot the pc, make take several reboots 3x's and several tries with these commands to try to fix it, if it can.
When you booted from the DVD it was a Windows 10 iso disc, right ?

I know this is a windows problem, but I have scoured the internet with no solution.  If i unpin the edge and store icon from the taskbar and I reboot or logout (or just kill and restart explore.exe) then they come back.  There are 2 fixes that are supposed to work - removing these from registry key, and from a roaming profile path - but none of that works for me.  Anyone got any other ideas?

Hi, I've been experiencing increasingly serious issues with my E425 since about last month. Some background: owned this laptop for a bit over a year now (I believe), and starting last month I started to notice that when I left my laptop on without a restart for too long (I have a habit of hibernating rather than just shutting down) the laptop would occasionally and suddenly slow down to a near halt. It's hard to explain via text, but basically processing simple tasks (e.g. loading a web page) would not work and the windows task bar would freeze. when i try to load other programs to figure out what happened, there's no response. I've tried waiting for the tasks to process but nearly an hour later it's still not doing anything. I mitigated these issues by simply shutting down my laptop before I went to bed each night and this seems to resolve the issue for the most part. Flash forward to this morning, and when I boot up my laptop for the first time I found the same issue (windows taskbar not responding, browser not loading, can't really load other programs either) and I'm left with the usual nuclear option of holding down the power button until the laptop turns off. I tried booting up 2 more times - still the same issue. I don't even know how to begin diagnosing this... I'm fairly sure it's not a virus since I haven't really been doing anything risque online and I have two antiviruses active on that computer (Microsoft Security Essentials and another one I c...

Answer:E425 Edge: issues with windows taskbar freezing, browser not working, general slowness

Hi, Larryant
 
Have you tried booting the system in Safe Mode? If you haven't, I would recommend trying that to see if we can narrow down the list of possible issues. To boot into Safe Mode, start your computer by turning it on. During the splash screen where it says "Lenovo" tap F8 repeatedly until a menu with a list of options pops up. Select Safe Mode and hit  Enter. See if your machine behaves any better while in safe mode.
 
Let me know the results, and good luck
 
Adam

Question: Microsoft edge

microsoft edge is closing as soon as i start it

Windows 10 felt in many regards like an operating system that was not ready for release back when Microsoft released it. This was the case for the new system browser Microsoft Edge as well, as it lacked a lot of features.

While it was highly optimized, it felt like a browsing shell more than a full browser in many regards. Microsoft worked on improving Edge, and it did so over time by introducing new functionality such as browser extensions.

Still, a first impression is usually one that lasts, and that is probably one reason why the vast majority of users on Windows 10 have switched over to Firefox, Chrome, Opera, Vivaldi or any of the other third-party browsers.

So how does Microsoft get people to give Edge another chance? Ads was the answer apparently, as users have started to see taskbar advertisement on Windows 10 like the one spotted by Brad Chacos below.
These ads appear over the Edge icon in the Windows 10 taskbar, even when Edge is not open. They do appear only when Edge is not the default system browser but that covers the majority of Windows 10 systems.

Since it advertises Microsoft Edge and Microsoft Rewards, it is possible that the campaign is reserved to the United States. The reason for this is simple: Microsoft Rewards are only available in the US right now.

This is not the only ad that promotes Microsoft Edge that users may see however. Microsoft is pushing ads in the Action Center as well stating that Chrome is draining battery fast and that switching ... Read more

Okay so I purchased a Surface 3 yesterday with Microsoft 10 installed and so far Microsoft Edge sucks big tie compared to the Explorer app on my Surface 2. I LOVED the search bar on the bottom that was hidden and all I had to do was swipe up. Also, I cannot swipe from the left to go back to the previous page... I have mine on tablet mode, do I need to go back to Microsoft and ask for one with 8.1 or am I missing something? I refuse to use Microsoft Edge if it sucks like this.

Answer:Microsoft Edge

You can sync reading lists and favorites at the moment. Probably need to be signed in with a MS account to the computer, and probably need the latest updates from MS (The major Update everyone is talking about). Edge is still having stuff slowly added to it. Next is probably going to be [expanded] support for extensions.

hmm; Incompatibility and security issues are why many left IE in the first place. Users of Firefox, Opera and Chrome have no (or few) compatibility issues so why step back into the fire???
 

Answer:Will you opt for Microsoft Edge?

I read about this a while back (when Edge (the name) was first announced). Has something changed since then? I thought the part you quoted is for those terrible businesses that have websites that require IE to work. I think Edge is a lot more cool with web standards than IE (especially older IEs) and Microsoft is basically saying if there is some site that requires IE to work properly, you will still have IE to fall back on to.

I am beginning to think that I gave Microsoft Edge a bad Rep. I switched to Google Chrome and now I am still having problems with logging onto web pages. I think that it may be a Windows 10 problem. I use CCleaner every night before I shut down so I know that it is not a "buildup" of excess files on my computer. At first Chrome was a little faster than Edge and I was satisfied but now the same old thing is happening. I have 8 Gigs of RAM. That should be enough to have a speedy computing experience. I do not know much about other Browsers such as Firefox or any other. Can anyone tell me what is going on? I have not tried IE. I can bring up IE with Cortana or just find it in the apps.

Any advice will be helpful,
