Just checked and it happens on mine too. I'm not sure this is what I
would call a bug... maybe just an oversight? Or yeah... a bug. :)
Also... the "Tools" icon disappears from the non-pinned page that was already up
when bringing up a pinned page.
I personally find Windows 7's taskbar pinned items feature (both programs and
IE9's pinned shortcuts) useless and cumbersome. Preferring a totally clean
taskbar unless something active is open, I disable the "recent programs" list on
the Start Menu and pin selected programs there. For bookmarks to sites in
IE9, I use Favorites.
But I do understand that people would want to use an advertised advantage of
IE9 like being able to pin shortcuts to sites that are accessed often. I
bet Microsoft addresses this oversight with their first IE9 update.
Yeah... make sure that you didn't uncheck the Command Bar when you were
"cleaning house". Right-click where your Home icon was and if a list pops
up, put a check next to Command Bar.
Also you can get to your home page by pressing the alt key and the home key at the same time (alt + home)
The alt key is by your space bar, the Home key is usually to the right of your main set of keys... near the PgUp PgDn and End keys...
......now the word Home is starting to look really really weird... even sounds weird... yay, it's one of those days.
What version of Internet Explorer? In my version, i can right-click one of the existing buttons (not favorites) and select 'customize' to add/remove buttons..
