      I’m trying to pin Settings to Taskbar. When I right click the icon in Start, all I get is “Pin to Start”. (no Pin to Taskbar) When I open it and it is on the Taskbar, I right click and only get “Close window”. I have tried a few other tricks, but nothing.

      Any suggestions?

      Thanks

        Do you have the November update installed? If so, look under the “More” option. The Pin to Taskbar setting should be hidden under it.

          I had to Reset my Surface 3 a couple of weeks ago, and all updates are installed. Settings/About is showing version 1511. When I right click Settings, all I get is Pin to Start.

          (BTW: I had done the upgrade from 8.1 to 10 in July, then November update. Since resetting it, although I hadn’t wanted to, the Surface is running much smoother/faster/responsive.)

          Christmas blessings for you and Joanna.

            Hi Hiram,
            I think you are missing an update. When I right-click on the Settings (my S3 was also upgraded to Win 10), I get an option for “more” and under that I have a Pin to Taskbar option. So, something is missing on yours.

              I wish I could say so, Joanna. My updates are current. On my laptop I get More/Pin to Taskbar, but on my S3 I don’t.

              Gos Bless you and Timoteo.

              Feliz Navidad y Próspero Año Nuevo.

                  I had a thought.

                  It could be profile corruption. That can cause weird issues. So, try making a second (local) account on your Surface without touching your main account. See if the problem happens on the new account. If it does, it’s probably profile corruption.

                  You might be able to fix it this way….
