Pinning a program in Windows 10 means you can always have a shortcut to it within easy reach. This is handy in case you have regular programs that you want to open without having to search for them or scroll through the All Apps list.
How to pin a program in the Windows 10
To pin a shortcut to the Start menu, go to Start (Windows orb) and go to All Apps. Scroll to find the program you want to pin, then right-click on it.
You’ll open a menu that includes Pin to Taskbar (the grey line along the bottom of the Desktop) and Pin to Start Menu (making a shortcut to the program appear when you click Start).
Click on whichever of the two you prefer (you can choose to do both) and you’ll then see the shortcut appear. Simply click it to open your program.
