When pinning a website to taskbar in Edge why is it coming up in IE?

Question: When pinning a website to taskbar in Edge why is it coming up in IE?

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.

best,

rick

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/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Hi:
I'm trying to pin a Gmail shortcut and a few forums shortcuts to the taskbar, but I'm not having any luck doing this.
I'm able to pin programs to the taskbar without a problem though so I'm wondering if somebody can tell me how this can be done in Win 7 Ultimate.

Answer:Pinning website shortcuts to the taskbar

It would show up if you right click the Internet Explorer icon

EDIT: The way to do this would simply be to save them as a favorite on the favorites bar and then drag them over the IE icon and drop them there

How do I pin a shortcut to a website to the task bar?

Answer:pinning shortcut to website on taskbar

Hello tjs,

Welcome to Seven Forums. ]

Unfortunately, you cannot pin a shortcut to the taskbar. What you can do is pin your web browser whatever it is to the taskbar and then pin the shortcut to the browsers jump list. The other alternative is to create a new toolbar from a folder that contains the shortcut. Info here if needed: Quick Launch - Enable or Disable

Hope this helps.

I installed Word 2013 onto a new computer some time ago. Windows 7 Home Premium SP1. Pinning has never worked. I can drag, I can right click and select pin, I can do whatever I want, but nothing appears and it just stays blank. Neither do recently opened items show up on a right click of the icon. Pinning/recent items works on everything else (e.g. Adobe, Explorer), including Outlook. I tried reinstalling but it still wouldn't work. I couldn't find much to go on so I gave up and have done without pinning. Recently I turned on "store and display recently opened items in the start menu and the taskbar" and suddenly I was given another clue as to what the issue is - Excel still shows nothing BUT in Word's recent items I'm getting *Adobe* files (see screenshot, file names removed for privacy): http://i.imgur.com/3wOOU60.png) I can pin adobe files to word's icon. I googled again and I still don't see anything about this but I'm just wondering if anyone has come across this and can help. Thanks in advance!

Question: Pinning to taskbar

Not a huge issue more of just something i was curious about, why cant the "computer" desktop icon be pinned to the taskbar? I know that it is possible to pin the windows explorer but i want it to have the computer icon or at least the c drive icon.

Answer:Pinning to taskbar

I haven't found the reason why it's not possible to pin the Computer icon to the superbar. Maybe it's because it belongs in the explorer - who knows. You can pin it, though, if you really want to. There are some guides already posted around here somewhere. You basically create a shortcut, then point that shortcut to where the My Computer icon points to, then pin it to the superbar.

Hi guys, I'm having a serious problem here. I wanted to add a folder to my windows explorer pinned folders so that I can right click on the windows explorer icon on the taskbar and have my popular folders right there. When I first setup windows 7, I did this by right clicking on the folders I wanted and clicking "Pin to Taskbar." Now, when I right click on folders, there is no such option. Even libraries only have the option to "Pin To Start Menu" which is strange because I had already pinned a library to the windows explorer icon on the task bar, which means that must have been an option before because I don't know how else I would do it. Can someone please explain to me how I can add more folders to the windows explorer icon? This is very frustrating

Answer:Pinning To Taskbar??

Drag folder to the explorer icon on taskbar and it will be pined there.

Question: Pinning To Taskbar

Hi All

I am new to windows 8 but have been finding my way around, One problem I am finding is that some websites I visit to "Pin To Taskbar" seem to only show a blank icon! No name but text but when you change the text it doesn't change on the icon? strange one particular site is the Nationwide bank page cannot seem to get an icon with a name on it?

Anybody got any ideas as to why this happens on only a few sites?

cheers!

Answer:Pinning To Taskbar

Hello Gatewaya, and welcome to Eight Forums.

It depends on what favicon is used by the site for what icon the URL shortcut will have on the middle of it's page icon. I have a icon for Nationwide bank for me, so you might see if deleting your temporary internet files and history and reloading the site may help.

If you like, you could also pin the site in the jump list of the browser's icon on the taskbar.

Hello-

Today we are having an issue pinning a Shortcut (SpeedTest) we created to the Taskbar. We established

a legitimate icon for the shortcut as well. The trouble is, when we drag the shortcut to the Taskabar we get a

word balloon that reads 'Pin to Opera'. I have searched, read tutorials here, checked 'gpedit.msc' options, etc.

to no avail. Please note attachment. Also, when right clicking the Shortcut, there's no option to 'Pin to

I don't recall ever having this issue before. Could someone please help me out here?

Man. I hate having to relearn how to do everything. I want to pin the snipping tool to my taskbar like I had on my old computer.

I know about the tutorial explaining what to do using the toolbar method, but I don't like the separator between the Recycle Bin and the rest of the icons. There is another recommended method of pinning the Recycle Bin by creating a shortcut and using shell:recyclebinfolder, but this stopped working. In fact, all my folder shortcuts I created and pinned to the taskbar by using explorer.exe in the target stopped working.

Is there any other working methods out there so that I can put the Recycle Bin icon anywhere I want on the taskbar without seeing the separator?

Thanks.

Enable the Quick Launch toolbar, and put all of your pinned items there, instead of pinning them to the taskbar.

Hi,

I'm currently having a problem where pinning any kind of shortcut to the taskbar via its context menu doesn't do anything. That is, a pin doesn't appear on the taskbar, and in the location '%AppData%\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Quick Launch\User Pinned\TaskBar' no shortcut file is created.

I recently upgraded to Windows 10 Professional from Windows 7 Professional. That may be the cause.
Another potential factor is that previously, I have followed this guide (using both methods described) in order to further customize my system. The reason I mention that is because in researching I read the answer posted here. Unfortunately, I have not been able to fix the problem by undoing the first method of that guide; also there is no way to undo the second method of that guide, and I have been unsuccessful in fixing the problem by following the solution that answer describes (I couldn't find the 'Inkfile' folder). By the way, is it wrong that the 'link' key I deleted in following the process to undo the first method hasn't reappeared after restarting?

I'm not sure what to try next.
I would really appreciate some help... sorry to be foolish enough to try and customize my system a bit, if that is what caused this issue.
For now, I guess I'll have to use shortcut toolbars on my taskbar. Or is there a registry location where I can at least go in and, say, add a key with a shortcut address and icon address to add a pin with those properties?

Thanks in advance,
Felewin

I installed Windows 7 recently and am finally making it look and behave the way I like except for one thing I would appreciate help with.

You see, I'm on dial-up... Don't laugh it's still the only thing available where I live.

When I had Windows Vista and before that I always had shortcut icon in my taskbar I could click on to connect or to check the state of my connection. Now I have to click on the Network Sharing Center in the right hand corner, and it takes me 3 more clicks before I'm finally connected. I have to go through the same routine to check if I'm still connected or what speed I connected at. Also, I don't always manage to connect on the first try so I have to go through that routine many times. I did manage to create a shortcut by opening Adapter Settings and creating one from there but the problem is Windows 7 wont let me pin that shortcut to the taskbar. I don't know what is worse... Having to go through the 3 or 4 cliks to connect, or having to stare at that huge dial-up shortcut all the time on my otherwise pristine desk top? Oh, and thanks for the little file that allowed me to remove the Libraries Icon from my desktop. Was really happy to find that little gem.

Any suggestion with my current problem would be greatly appreciated.

Something weird has happened to my taskbar. I have a few programs pinned there and everything was okay. Then today I unpinned Firefox from there because I wanted to change the icon I was using. After deciding I didn't like it I tried to go back to the one I was using but when I pinned it back to the task bar this problem occurred:

As you can see when I click on the silver Firefox icon, it opens up a new firefox icon (default icon) in a separate place, taking up unnecessary space. I can't figure out how to make it go back to the way it was where everything stayed within the silver icon.

Answer:Strange problem with pinning an icon to taskbar

It is indeed the browser being opened but the problem is it used to open up within the silver icon (the default firefox icon you see to the right has basically taken its place). It's a bit of an annoyance because it takes up the little space I have on my taskbar before things start getting combined and messy.

Sorry if what I'm explaining is confusing, it would probably be easier to show with a video or something.

Microsoft Edge Released for iOS and Coming Soon to Android

Microsoft Edge was released today for iOS and coming soon for Android. Both of these releases are coming preview mode with only the iOS version available today via the Apple TestFlight program. The Android version is still in beta and will be coming soon.

As Microsoft has not been able to create a sizeable dent in the mobile market, it makes sense to bridge the gap between Windows 10 and the two biggest mobile operating systems; Apple iOS and Google Android. This is most visible with their Continue on PC feature that is available in Insider Preview builds and the upcoming Fall Creators Update.

With this feature, Edge users on iOS and Android will be able to transfer what they are reading or working on to their PC. If they are reading a new article or working on a doc on their mobile phone, they can click a button and transfer it automatically to their PC so they can continue working on it at their computer.

I bought my 950 as this service/facility was and still is advertised, myself and many other users cant use the function because it does not work,
I want my devices to sync, Bookmarks and reading list, it cant be that difficult? Also sms on laptop would be nice seeing as it worked for a few weeks,
how about giving us a manual sync button so we can force activate the sync feature for Edge browser.

I"ve asked this before (to no avail) and still have a problem with some website images that show up as a gray box with maybe a little of the image showing up at the top. So, Why are some web images are turning out gray when I open up a website?What is interesting, is my wifes computer does the same thing. I've googled and asked on Yahoo answers but not a single person seems to know what I am talking about. Here is what I am talking about in inserted picture below. What's interesting is my pictures from my camera are all good and I have hundreds on my hard drive. In fact, most pictures come through as they should - clear. Anyone have an idea what I may do to change this? I am running Windows XP and IE 8 on my desktop computer.

Answer:website images coming out gray

Is this just a problem with some pictures on the internet only? Are the same pictures that turn up grey on your computer the same ones that turn up grey on your wifes, or is it completley random?

Have you tried using a different browser to see if it makes any difference, although it sounds as though it could be an ISP problem if it's happening on a seperate computer also. Who is your ISP?

let me preface with an advanced thank you for help.

I'm pretty certain I picked up a nasty virus a few days ago. My browser suddenly attempted to open a .pdf and then my taskbar & descktop shortcuts were gone. I've run every malware & spyware under the sun including spybot, adaware (which shows Vundo but will not remove it) AVG, 7 the Kelly tool for bringing back the taskbar and nothing has helped. I've tried to clean up the registry after running HiJackThis and researching each entry but I have not succeeded in getting anything to work. At this point the task bar & shortcuts are appearing and disappearing ever 30 seconds or so but will not remain.

I do not have an original copy of xp, I do have my reinstallation CD but I have lost the registration key. I'm using windows xp as my os. Any help is greatly appreciated!!

I have a website, I am trying to get to work in edge. I made a website, and it is hosted on my internal server via apache running on Mandriva Linux 2010.1, on virtual box, on Windows 10 (which is the physical machine's OS).

I tested this website in Internet Explorer, by going to the main page, opening it in Internet Explorer, and then clicking the hyperlink to go there. It works from there. I tested in firefox and chrome, and it works there too. But it won't work from edge.

I found out the reason: edge is coded to make the page redirect from http to https, and I don't want it to run over https, and it is not set up to run over https. What trick either in my webserver or in edge's configuration can I use to get around this? Or if that's not possible could you tell me how to get the same content working over https, without having to deal with certificates or anything, and no warnings about certificate errors? https is not really needed for this website, because it's just a list of hyperlinks to other pages.

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.

Hello All,

On the left Edge, on the right Firefox (which is still a memory hog ).
Any one else having the same issues?
The only thing that changed was I had to reinstall HP's AMD W8 drivers under compatibility mode; furthermore installing the latest WU updates did not resolve this issue.

Running Windows Network Diagnostics

 
 
Connection is fine, can get anything else I want.  Firewall is not on as I'm running Eset.  Diagnostics is as useless as ever and says it can't determine the problem as usual.
 
HOWEVER, if I use the Microsoft Edge browser, no problem - straight to Coles.

My problem is I find MS Edge does not always react the same to sites that appear to have website certificate error problems.

The following two url's are basically for the same site, due to a change in the name of the government department at some or other stage.

Daily State of Dams

Daily State of Dams


Both sites offer a facility where one can display data accessed from a database in a map form. One can display the latest data for the most recent date in the data base which always works. But on the one site (the official new site), DWS Landing Page), choosing a previous date to the latest on will just display a place holder instead of the map,



yet on the older site, it will display a website certificate error message, which then allows one to proceed anyway and then get the map.



Can anyone offer an explanation why this is please? Iin other words why does MS edge not routinely display the error message instead of a place holder?

Further, using another browser such as Chrome will offer one an option to display the image in a separate window which then allows one to see the image. This facility is not available in MS Edge consistently. Any reason why not?

Ideas or time for a re-install?

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.

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.

The Icon to Microsoft Edge seems to have changed to a white "e" on a blue background. I'm sure it just used to be a blue "e" on a transparent background.

How would I go about changing it back?

Many thanks.

Hi,

I've enabled the auto-hide taskbar in Windows 7, but when the taskbar is hidden, the very top of the taskbar is still visible, leaving an edge.


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
...install an older version - if available

It would help us to help you if you would fill in your system specs.

Answer:Edge Icon on Desktop and Taskbar

Edge icon has as far as I know always been white stylised letter E on blue background (left in screenshot below), Internet Explorer icon ( right in screenshot) blue on transparent background.


When pinned to Taskbar Edge icon is blue on transparent background by default:



Edge shortcut on desktop is again white on blue background:


Have you maybe changed the icon manually?

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

I am currently taking my real estate course online and it is important that I am able to open the .pdf files they have available to students to support their ongoing learning. Every time I click on a .pdf file on this site, it cannot open it and prompts me to send an error report. I have downloaded the latest version of Adobe, however that did not seem to remedy the problem. I called OREA to tell them about the problem I'm having, however they were not having the same problem on their end so it seems that it is my individual computer.Please help if you can

Answer:Opening .pdf file on OREA website keeps coming up Internet Explorer Error

Just recently Edge has been giving me an error message stating "There is a problem with this site's security certificate" when I try to log onto my work site remotely. I know the site well, have spoken to their IT department and have been assured the certificate is up to date. I have verified my computer has the correct date and time. I have tried accessing the site with MS IE with the same results. There is an option to ignore the warning and proceed anyway, but nothing happens when I click it. Fire Fox allows me to get to the website and log in, but then it seems Citrix will not allow me to access the content. I had previously been able to access the site and its content with Edge. I am not aware that anything has changed on my computer and the IT department for the site I am trying to access notes that they are not having any problem with remote access when they personally log on, and have not received any other calls about problems. They note multiple users are currently logged on. They insist the problem is in my computer. Any ideas on how to fix this?

I am currently running W10 Pro version 1511 on a Dell machine with Intel Core i7 920 @2.67GHz and 8.00 GB RAM. 64 bit system. I use both Fire Fox and MS Edge as browsers both of which are up to date.

I ran the recent update for Windows 10 and since then when I click on Edge and do a search it comes up with a list of websites ok. However when I click on one of the links to open it I get "Hmm, we can't reach this page. Try this: make sure you have right address or refresh page." All links were working fine before I ran the update. I have exactly the same problem with my daughter's laptop. All searches work fine on anything not using Windows 10. Any ideas??

When using any version of IE Explorer, when viewing a webpage and want to create a desktop shortcut to that webpage I would simply right click just about anywhere on the webpage and select Create Desktop Shortcut from the drop-down Menu and Presto a new icon shortcut would appear on the desktop.

However, when using MS- Edge, when I Right Click on any webpage all I get is a small drop down-down menu with no selection to create a Desktop Shortcut. Please don't tell me that MS has removed this feature in Edge and I am just missing something or there is a flaw in my system. I have tried every which way to create a Desktop Shortcut of something I am viewing when using Edge to no avail.

Answer:Creating Desktop Shortcut To Website When Using MS Edge

I'm with you on this one!
So far the only way I have found is to add the page to a reading list by clicking the Star at top right, selecting Reading List and then Add.
It's not ideal but it's better than nothing.

Another roundabout way is:
While viewing your wepage in Edge,

Click the three dots at top right
Choose Open with Internet Explorer

Now you can create your shortcut as you were used to. The shortcut will open in Edge if that's your default browser.

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,
Steve

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.
