How do I pin programs to my taskbar in Windows 10?

Posted by: Helpdesk

You can pin often used apps or programs to both the Start menu and the taskbar.

1. Click the ‘Start button’, then select ‘All apps‘ OR Click the ‘Start button’ and start typing to search for your app OR right-click on a currently opened app.

2. Right-click on the app you want to pin.

3. Select’ Pin to Start’ OR ‘Pin to taskbar’.

Make the Start menu yours by pinning apps and programs and moving and regrouping those pinned tiles (see ‘Group your Apps’ below).

If you need more space, resize the Start menu to make it bigger by resting your cursor on the edge of the start menu until it looks like , then drag to the right.

TIP: Once you pin a new app to the start menu, resize it. Right-click the app tile, select Resize and then choose the tile size you want. Each app has its own range of size settings you can select from.
