I'm using Windows 7 and haven't been able to pin Evernote to my taskbar in a while (I think since the upgrade to version 4). I've researched the problem through the forums and have tried all suggestions--both making sure I haven't pinned a shortcut (I haven't--opened from the program file and tried to pin from that icon) and uninstalling and reinstalling. Nothing's helped.

When Evernote is open, I get the blank paper sheet default Windows icon instead of the Evernote logo and the right-click menu has Evernote shortcuts (new note, find note, clip screenshot, etc.) and no option to pin to taskbar.

Anyone have ideas? I love Evernote and I love my taskbar. :(

I think that you should submit a support request on this one -- I can't remember seeing anything like it, at least recently. See the link in my signature.

I worked with someone in tech support and we tried a few things. Here's what ultimately fixed the problem:

I found some previous cases of other users having the same issue with the pin to taskbar, and the solution that worked for them was to uninstall Evernote using a tool called revo uninstaller that should remove all broken traces of Evernote from your machine. You can download the free version of the tool here:

http://www.revouninstaller.com/

Once that is installed, use that to uninstall Evernote. After that, try installing the latest version and let me know if the issue remains.

Easy!

 

Just go to where you installed Evernote (probably C:\Program Files (x86)\Evernote\Evernote).

 

Find the Evernote.exe application file, right-click on it, and Pin To Taskbar.  Done!

I did not try the uninstaller option. I did try going to the folder, rick clicking on the evernote.exe and it still shows up in my taskbar without the icon.

 Thank you for this Erich.  I had this trouble on two upgrades and the solution that you posted worked for mine.
