This tutorial will show you how to reset and remove all of your currently pinned apps (programs) on the taskbar in Windows 8
, Windows RT
, Windows 8.1
, and Windows RT 8.1
This can be helpful if you are unable to "Unpin this program from taskbar", or just wish to quickly clear all pinned apps from the taskbar.
This only includes
resetting and removing all of your pinned apps
on the taskbar. These will be desktop apps and not Store apps
since Store apps cannot be pinned to the taskbar.
The Windows 8.1 Update
to be released on April 8th 2014
via Windows Update
, adds the ability to pin modern apps to the taskbar. This tutorial will now clear pinned modern apps as well.
This does not include taskbar toolbars
or Jump Lists
