    Pinned icons

    Hi everybody,

    First, please excuse me if this is not the most proper place to post this question.

    IŽd like to tell you about pinned icons; I have some of them on my taskbar. The problem: anytime I click on one of them the pinned icon dissapears, and the pinned icon does not return where it was until I close the application.

    My question is: is there a way to make pinned icons to behave the same way as if they were on the old quicklaunch bar ?

    Thanks in advance.

    Hello CU,

    Yes, you could add Quick Launch to your taskbar if you like.

    As a test, see if unpinning the app, open the app, and pin the app again will have the icon show properly for it again.

Make custom metro box ICONS for pinned stuff?
Does anyone think it'd be a good idea or be cool to give our Pinned stuff their own ICON when they are PINNED? I think so....I don't like seeing some default small icon in a HUGE box. There should be a way to do this.
