Cannot Pin A Explorer Window To Taskbar In Windows 7

Question

I have installed Roxio Creator 2012 Pro in Windows 7 32-bit (Spanish Version), and everytime when I tried to pin a explorer window to taskbar (like My Videos or Recycle Bin) it apears a 3D button with the legend "Roxio muestras en 3D", when I clicked on, it redirects me to "Roxio muestras en 3D" folder in "My pictures" so I cannot pin any explorer windows to taskbar for direct access.

 

This problem only occurs when roxio creator 2012 is installed.

I see your problem, Adriraul. I'm running Windows 7 Ultimate-32 bit.

 

Without Creator 2010 installed, if I open My Computer and drag the Video Library icon down towards the taskbar, Windows first offers to create a link on the desktop, and then when I get down onto the taskbar it says it will pin the link to Windows Explorer.

It then pins the Videos link to that Windows Explorer icon you can see on the taskbar next to the Firefox.

Now, with Creator 2012 installed, as soon as I drag the icon to the taskbar, it wants to pin it into 'Triple Scoop Music' instead of Windows Explorer.

No matter where on the taskbar I try to pin the Videos icon, it wants to go to 'Triple Scoop Music', and if I let it do that, it creates a Triple Scoop Music link on my toolbar where there wasn't one before, with 'Videos' pinned inside it.

With Creator 2012 installed I can't pin any Windows Explorer folder to my task bar. They all end up in Triple Scoop Music instead. In Adriraul's case they end up in his Roxio 3D Samples folder.

 

This shouldn't happen, and it looks to be a fault caused by Creator 2012. I tried it with Creator 2010, but the error doesn't happen there.

We are talking about Windows Explorer folders Jim, not Internet Explorer icons.

 

Can you pin a folder from a hard drive to your task bar? We can't.

Brendon if I did this correct? It works for me with C2012 Pro on W7 x64 Ultimate.

I can take a folder that I have on my desktop,drag it to the taskbar and get the "pin to Windows Explorer" dialog to come up.

If I do so then when I right click the Windows Explorer icon I see it pinned there.

 

I've been trying to do some research about alternate "pinning" locations but haven't found much yet.

In our case [me and the Original Poster] the "pin to Windows Explorer" has been changed by Creator 2012 into "pin to [some Roxio folder]"

 

Any further ideas, anyone?

What happens if you unpin Triple Scoop Music from the task bar and then try pinning another folder?

Does it just recreate TSM again?

I tried it again, using both a Shortcut as well as a Folder from my Desktop.

 

They work as advertised on my System:

Just thinking out loud if it helps at all.

 

When you drag a file to the taskbar it should pin it to the default application that opens it,for example a music file will pin to Windows Media Player (or whatever your default program is set to).An xls file will pin to Excel.

Following that thought a folder should pin to Windows Explorer since Explorer is the app for looking at folders.

So the question becomes where is the place that this is being decided?And why did it change?

Is it a registry entry?

Is it a Windows setting?

Does it display this behavior with any folder,no matter the contents?

 

So far I haven't been able to find any answers

Brendon, look at your C2010 install pic, you see at the bottom of the pinned folder Windows Explorer? In your C2012 pinned folder Triple Scoop Music is pinned.

 

Unpin Triple Scoop Music, does the folder in the task bar disappear?

 

post-97-0-09426100-1338214269_thumb.jpg

 

If the folder disappears right click the start button, click open windows explorer. It opens and Libraries is highlighted, right click Libraries, Restore default libraries, a libraries folder appears on the task bar. If you close the Explorer window the libraries folder vanishes from the task bar. You need to pin it before closing the Explorer window.

 

Now try it and tell me how it works?

That's basically what I was asking back in post 10.

 

If Windows Explorer is no longer pinned to the task bar you can easily repin it by going to Start,Accesories.right clicking Windows Explorer and hitting Pin to Taskbar.

 

Just for grins I just now unpinned Exploer from the taskbar and guess what happened.When I dragged a folder there it wanted to pin it to Triple Scoop Music.

I pin Explorer back and things go back to normal.

Good thoughts Terry! Obviously you have not let the smoke from your wildfires, cloud your thinking :lol:

 

The smoke was really bad Friday Jim.

The fire is about 150 miles south so it takes a while to get here depending on the wind.

The last few days were pretty windy so the smoke came in and blew right out again.

 

It was bad enough Friday to keep all the doors and windows closed so the smell wasn't too bad in the house.

 

God do I hate fire season..I just hope we don't get one around here.
