Can't unpin Apps

Sorry if posting this in the wrong place - do not see a Bug Report forum
When you pin an app to the Taskbar (via right click on any app/context menu), the app is pished to front page, but there does not seem to be an option to unpin the app (other than removing and re-installing). Once Pin'd, the option to Pin is greyed out int he context menu. Needs to be a checked option that you can uncheck.
I am on Win11 (or Win10) platform running current version, and this has been true for years, so applies to many builds.

Working Fine Here

On Windows 10, I right-clicked an app and selected Pin To Taskbar. I got the messagebox telling me it would open an Explorer window and to then drag the link from that window to the taskbar. I click OK, got the window, and dragged and dropped the shortcut to the taskbar which created a pinned shortcut. I then right-clicked on the shortcut and selected Unpin.

On Windows 11, I right-clicked an app and selected Pin To Taskbar. I got the messagebox telling me the app had been added to the Windows Start Menu and I could right click and add it to the taskbar from there. I click OK, click Start, click App Apps, right-click the portable app I added, select More, and select Pin to taskbar which created a pinned shortcut. I then right-clicked on the shortcut and selected Unpin.

Both worked without issue, one on my dev machine, one in a clean Win11 VM. Is there anything else on your PC that could be interfering?

Sometimes, the impossible can become possible, if you're awesome!
