Pinning Items to the Taskbar in Windows 8.1: Overview
The Taskbar is the thin toolbar that appears at the bottom of the Desktop within Windows 8.1. In Windows 8.1, the “Start” button appears at the far left end of the Taskbar. After that is the area where program shortcuts that you have been pinned to your Taskbar will appear.
You can add shortcuts to the Taskbar in Windows 8.1 so that you can have single-click access to the programs that you use most frequently. This process is referred to as “pinning” programs to the Taskbar. To pin a program to the Taskbar, find the app tile for the app that you want to pin to the Taskbar either within the Start screen or within the “Apps” screen that you can access by clicking the downward-pointing arrow in the lower-left corner of the Start screen. Once you have located the app tile, right-click it and then click the “Pin to taskbar” command within the options bar that appears at the bottom of the screen.
To remove, or “un-pin,” app shortcuts from the Taskbar, right-click the unwanted app tile icon within the Taskbar and then select the “Unpin this program from taskbar” command within the pop up menu that appears.
