    Hello there, The pinned icons are stored in two locations: In the File System, stored shortcut files under %APPDATA%\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Quick Launch\User Pinned\TaskBar. In the Registry, stored configuration under HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Taskband. We could delete the shortcut directly, but it will keep an invalid icon on the taskbar. If you need delete all pained icons, you may use group policy setting “Remove pinned programs from the Taskbar” under “User Configuration\Policies\Administrative Templates\Start Menu and Taskbar”.
