Hello,

Indeed, the Automatically Pinned to Taskbar for a shortcut is not working on Windows 10.

We will further investigate if there is any programmatically method to automatically pin a shortcut to the Taskbar.

If you have other questions, please let us know.

Best regards,

Is this issue resolved yet?

I am using latest version but automatic pin feature isn't working for windows 10. Any workaround?

Hello,

We have further investigated this and starting with Windows 10 we didn't found any public API which can be used to automatically pin a shortcut to taskbar. It seems this is because Microsoft doesn't allow any programmatically customization of the taskbar. The Windows 10 taskbar can be only manually customized by the user.

Hi Justin,

I am afraid we weren't able to find any solution for this option on Windows 10.

So, this option will not apply/work on Windows 10 machines. Thank you for your understanding.

All the best,
Daniel

Hi Daniel,
Thanks for your kindly reply. I met a problem is that the old version is pinned to taskbar but after updating to new version the pinned link is unavailable.
Do you have some suggestions how to keep the pinned link available on new version? Thanks!!

Best Regards,
Justin

Hello Justin,

Starting with Windows 10, a lot of programmatic ways of pinning an executable to taskbar have stopped working (e.g. PowerShell scripts, VBScripts, C# solutions, etc.).

An example of the above would be this StackOverflow thread.

Unfortunately, as my colleague Daniel mentioned above, we were not quite able to find a solution for this problem on Windows 10.

Thank you for your understanding!
