Pinned Items Folder Location

The pinned items are located at

C:\Users\[yourusername]\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Quick Launch\User Pinned

In there are 3 folders:

  • ImplicitAppShortcuts
  • StartMenu
  • TaskBar

You should create a backup of all of them.

IMPORTANT: To actually locate the folder above, you need to be able to see hidden system files and folders. If you are unsure if you can do that, read our tutorial how to see hidden files/folders

To quickly access the pinned items folder you may use the variable %USERPROFILE%
