    Well, I suppose that would make sense to not have a "Pin to Start" or "Pin to Taskbar" context menu option for basically an online file.

    If you "Make available offline" the file, the "Pin to Start" option will be there afterwards though.

    to restore it.

    Usually a restart fixes stuff like that but, not today. Thanks man. I bookmarked this along with other tutorials in fear that I may one day need it.
