How to Fix Apps keep pinning themselves on startup to the task bar, how do I stop this? on Windows 10?

  1. if you go to taskbar type in startup App you Switch on/off of what Program you want to run when windows boots up

    If it is still there when you close the program then somewhere along you have selected to pin it to the taskbar for easy access whenever you want it.  If the icon is still there when you close the program, right click it and Unpin.

    In search Bar type in *Local Group Policy Editor*

    *Under User configuration* Look for Administrative Hit Arrow down then Look for *Start Menu and Taskbar* Click it.. After that look for *Do not allow pinning programs to the taskbar double click box will pop up hit Disabled then Apply Reboot then see if that helps
