Pin Microsoft To-Do Lists to the Start Menu
When you add more than one task list to the Microsoft To-Do app, you will have to go to the application to view every single list. This can be a tedious task, also you can miss out on important timelines if you forget to open the application. Hence, pinning your important tasks to the Start Menu can be extremely useful.
Pinning your Microsoft To-Do lists on the Start Menu will let you view all your important tasks at the very beginning. Since all the pending tasks appear right in front every time you open your Start screen or Start menu on your PC you never miss out on important stuff that demands timely action.
Here is how you can pin your To-Do lists to the Start Menu of Windows 10.
1] Open the Microsoft To-Do app.
- Microsoft To-Do app requires you to sign-in with a Microsoft account. However, if you are already using a Microsoft account to sign-in to Windows 10, the app automatically uses your Microsoft account upon installing it on Windows 10.
- If you do not have the Microsoft To-Do app you can download it from the Windows Store. This is a free app, just make sure that you are running the latest version of the application as well as Windows 10.
2] To start pinning your task lists to the Start Menu, right-click on the task list and select the ‘Pin to Start’ option.
3] When you get the confirmation dialog, click ‘Yes’. This action is going to add your selected to-do lists to the Start Menu.
That is, it! Open the Start menu and you will see your Task list appearing as a new tile.
Click & drag the Microsoft To-Do list to the desire position
1] Now open the ‘Start Menu’.
2] If you want to see the pinned To-Do list tile at the top or any other specific position on the Start Menu, simply click-hold and move the tile.
3] Customize the tile by right-clicking on it, select the ‘Resize’ sub-menu, and choose your desired size from the options.
With Live To-Do tiles on your Start Menu, a single tap can launch the list and you can immediately jump to the selected list. This saves time and ensures you never miss the very important To-Do things. Also, when you are done with the tasks on one list and you do not need them on the Start Menu, simply unpin it. To do so, you can right-click on the tile and select ‘Unpin’ from the option.
If the pinned To-Do tile does not show lists?
