computer help

I bought a new laptop a few days ago.   It is one that you can use your fingers to move things around instead of a mouse.   It has  a new feature where I can pin or unpin things from my start page.  It disappeared on me a couple of days ago.  Do anyone know how to get that back?

Does your old computer still work?

If so Google your make, model and problem. There are usual message boards to help people troubleshoot issues.

What system is your computer running on?  Do you know the name of the program you're trying to find again?

yes it still works but there isn't any reason I can't google it from this one.   I just thought this would save me some frustration.  Roma was able to help me pretty quickly with the last problem I had.

Upper right corner if you glide over it a menu should pop up

no it was just something that said pin it or unpin it.  when I did a search for that I was told there was nothing.

I'm sorry.  I don't know my way around windows 8 well enough to be of any help here!

I would try Googling for information on the latest windows 8 updates and see if they had to make changes to the program that let you pin.  Sometimes a program will not work with the new updates for a few days, or require a special patch to fix.

I can't seem to get the taskbar to show up.  Could I deleted it or locked it out somehow?
