I just completed a clean install of 64 bit Windows 7 Home Premium.

After adding the old style quick launch toolbar and dragging it to the left, the right-click menu on the main area of the taskbar no longer works. I don't get any popup menu at all. How can I restore this popup menu?

For the avoidance of doubt - I know how to access these options through alternate means, I want to restore the right-click popup menu.

Open explorer and go to %AppData%\Microsoft\Windows\Recent\AutomaticDestinations

Delete 1b4dd67f29cb1962.automaticDestinations-ms

You should now be able to pin stuff again.

Go to the control panel - type Taskbar in the search. There you will have access to the taskbar options.

From there, disable the band. Then unlock it. Reenable the band. Move it around.

Thanks, I didn't try this. Strangely, the popup has returned after a reboot (I can't believe I didn't try a reboot). Appreciate your help though :-) – Barry-Jon Oct 31 '09 at 23:15
