"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

I tested this and it works fine for me, that is, dragging an Excel file to the Excel icon pinned to the taskbar and the right-clicking to see that the file is now pinned to the list.

Using the Excel icon, try to Unpin this program from the taskbar and then re-pin it to the taskbar. Then see if you're able to successfully pin your file to the Excel icon in the taskbar afterward.

If you drag the file over the Excel icon, do you see the Pin to Microsoft Excel 2010 message when hover over the Excel icon?

Here is a fix from the MS forums that might work for you:

It could be Excel's jump list problem

1.Open Windows Explorer.
2.Type or copy and paste the following into the address bar:

3.Identify files that are comparatively larger in size than the rest of the file, such as files that have file size of 1 MB or more.
Delete the abnormal file.

Tip: If you does not want to retain the Jump Lists’ recent items history on all applications, just delete all the automaticDestinations-ms files in the folder.

4.The recent items functionality on Jump Lists will be restored. The recent items on the Jump Lists will be re-added as the program is been used. However, do note that the solution does not restore the previously pinned items. So user will have to pin new items again.
