Solved File context menu ‘Send to>Mail Recipient’ no longer works

I still cannot drop a shortcut onto the taskbar like I could in Windows 10, and there is no 'Pin to Taskbar' menu option.
In my Windows 11 with ExplorerPatcher, I can

When setting up ExplorerPatcher, I choose the Windows 10 style Taskbar.
- I restarted after making that setting.
- If you have installed EP, these choices are shown when you right-click on the Taskbar & choose Properties.

I also tested this with an internet shortcut because you mentioned Chrome and it worked the same way as my exe shortcut above.

The Context menu, Pin to Taskbar option does not appear when the file is on a removable disk but it does appear if you first copy the file to, say, your Desktop on an internal disk.

If you look in the About section, you'll see an option to Export current settings. That will be handy if you intend to play around with EP.

Thanks again Denis, much appreciated. I only now realize my stupidity :oops: The "shortcut" I tried it with was not a real shortcut but an "Internet shortcut'. That is why it said Pin to Chrome. You can't tell the difference from the look of the icon. With a real shortcut, I have the 'Pin to Taskbar" option and can also drag it. Yay, that is some improvement 😊
