    every time pin a file to the TB it disappears after a while leaving behind
    the prog and the recent - but no file.
    MS Publisher and MS Excel.
    Any one know why?

    What do you mean "the prog and the recent - but no file" ?
    How are you pinning Excel to the Taskbar ?

    Excel pinned by right clicking and then "pin to TB"
    That works fine and stays together with recent files. But when I drag, say,
    my file called ***** to the TB it stays for a while but after a day or so
    that file is no longer pinned. Same thing with MS Publisher.

    I can only pin exe files to the Taskbar. What exactly is your ***** file ?
    If it isn't an application exe file then whatever program that opens it will
    be pinned.
    For example, if I drag a text note to the Tasbar then Notepad will be pinned.
    If I drag a pdf document to the Taskbar then Adobe Reader will be pinned.

    Isn't that how yours works?

    Yes, but the actual document remains pinned, but only for a while. For
    instance, yesterday pinned a file .xls to Excel and it is still there today.
    But it will disappear sometime soon. I'll let you know when.
    Thanks for trying to help.

    A week gone by tomorrow and this time the files have held and are still
    pinned - what have I done different? This is the retail home prem and before
    was the ultimate RC!
    Thanks for all your input.

    It's because you're watching it. Turn your back and it will fail!
