    Start an app, then while it is open right click the icon on the taskbar, then pin it

    Possibly but I dont know what did I change previously. It has been like this when I upgraded from Win 10 to 11.

    Previously I was using Startisback on Win10 and it is still installed but not working.

    It's strange because you don't have the "pin to taskbar" option at all

    How is strange if he said (good that he still said, because some don't say too) that this is the so-called "castrated" version.
    Strange that it works at all. If there is anything strange at all, it is strange.
     
    Stop hovering to collapse... Click to collapse... Hover to expand... Click to expand...

    Even if there were certain changes made in Windows 10, during the upgrade process, everything should be back to stock.

    Got it sorted. Needed to edit the Group Policy Editor "Do not allow pinning programs to the Taskbar" Obviously it was done by me but totally forgot about it.

    Thanks
