Thanks for your quick response.Generally, you can locate the app in the Start menu, right click on it and select 'More' from the popup menu. In that menu, you should then find 'Pin to taskbar'. If the icon is already on the desktop, right clicking on it should also reveal a 'Pin to taskbar' selection.
Right - I already have shortcut on desktop, & cannot right click to taskbar. Where do I find browser frequent list? I tried many searches & can't find it.That just creates an URL shortcut on Desktop. URL's can't be pinned to Taskbar. Under the Browser frequent list though, they can be pinned there.
That's my original problem. I cannot pin Duck Duck Go to my taskbar. If it were an app, that would be easy. Maybe the problem is that I made Google Chrome my default browser when IE kept stopping. My Start menu has no Jump list - am using Win 10. Any other suggestions?If you pin the browser to the Taskbar, you should be able to right-click the browser icon to see the frequent and pinned list. It is also referred to as the Jump List on the Start Menu.
I have Win 10 Home. Found jump list, under File Explorer. However, it does not include DD Go. Is there a way to get it there?I have Windows 10 Professional and the Start Menu (both Classic Shell and the default menu) has Jump List.
Your browser is the application for opening URL's. Pin your browser to the Taskbar. And then pin your URL's within the Jump List of the Browser. Each browser stores it's own Jump List items.
Office documents are the same way. You can't pin Office documents to Taskbar. But you can pin them from the frequent list of the application for which they are associated.
Thanks. It is my default search engine in the omnibox of home page, but I have to go to Google to get it. I used to access it directly from my taskbar.I don't understand, if you like DuckDuckGo as a search engine, why you don't just make it your home page or a second home page and then when you open your browser it will either default to opening it or it will produce a second tab.
I tried it, but got msg "Unable to service request". Suggested several MSDN resources - magazine, etc. I much appreciate your efforts to help.
