  • I just tried this and it does not work - it seems like a bug or a hold over from the Win7-era context menu.  Can you please submit a bug  report on this?

  • The same thing happens to me, it only allows you to pin applications installed through an installer but not just any .exe files, I used to do that by dragging a shortcut to the start menu or with right click and ''pin to start menu' but that doesn't work anymore
