Explorer Taskbar Icon not showing multiple Pinned Links

Hi Guys.

About 2 weeks ago the Explorer icon on the Taskbar where you can pin up to 12 shortcuts started randomly disappearing causing me to drag 'n drop them again. After about the 5th or 6th time of them disappearing and replacing them I am now only able to pin 4. I've installed no additional software during the period in which this error started appearing except a Windows Update released on June 10th, which I might add, the random disappearance of those Pinned icons had been happening. It wasn't until the 16th that it would no longer allow me to pin more than 4.

Does anyone here know where in the registry this setting is created so I can fix it to use 12 again instead of 4? I've searched the registry for Explorer Pinned, Taskbar Pinned, Taskbar Frequent, etc., all to no avail.

Here is a screenshot of what I'm speaking:



Before the 16th I could put 12 Pinned shortcuts and then they just stopped.

Thank you in advance.
Cole
