Quick Tip: How to “Pin To Taskbar” In Windows 10

I like to keep the desktop on my Windows 10 computer pretty much clear of any icons. Typically, if a program icon shows up on the desktop that I need to use frequently or get to quickly, I will pin it to the taskbar (the bar located at the bottom of the screen); then, once I know the program icon is on the taskbar, I will delete the program icon on the desktop.  I do this so that I can access the program from anywhere on the computer without having to go back to the desktop or go to the Start Menu. So, how do you pin a program icon (or folder, etc…) to the taskbar?

It is actually pretty basic. If you “right mouse click” the icon item, you will see an option to “Pin to taskbar”. Click on that option and the icon item will then be seen on the taskbar. To delete a pinned item on the taskbar, “right mouse click” the icon and click on “unpin from taskbar”. This same process will work on many program items that are on your Windows “Start Menu”, as well.
