    Need help.... all of a sudden unable to pin to start

    I am running Windows 8 and have an hp pavilion laptop. We've had it a couple of weeks and al has been ok until tonight. I accidentially unpinned Facebook from start and now it will not repin and I also cannot pin other things when I open it in the browser... same as always... it does not bring up the black bar on the bottom with the icons saying "pin to start" etc. What am I doing wrong? Can anyone please help me?!

    64-bit Windows 10

    Hello Heidiadriansen, and welcome to Eight Forums.

    If this is in IE10 Metro, then double check using the tutorial below to see if it may be able to help.

    If all else fails, as a workaround, you could use OPTION ONE or OPTION THREE in the tutorial below to create a website shortcut that you will be able to "Pin to Start".
