Can my favorite file be moved closer to the bottom in the pinned Windows 10 Taskbar icon dialog box?
Everyday I open the same spreadsheet. I pinned this file to the Taskbar for easy access. But the dialog box places my requested file near the top of my screen. Because LibreOffice shows all the recent files I didn't request between my pinned file and LibreOfficeCalc/Unpin message.

Is there any way to move MyFavoriteFile to the bottom? Or can there be an option to not display the recent files with my pinned file?

A recent files list of 20 suits me fine. I don't want to make the recent file count 1 just so I can lower my requested file to the bottom of the screen. I would like to click on the taskbar icon and have my pinned file close. Having to move my mouse from the taskbar icon to the top of my screen every time makes getting to my pinned file harder than it should be.

Current format:

Pinned
MyFavoriteFile.ods

Recent
Recent file #1
Recent file #2
Recent file #3
Recent file #4
etc

LibreOffice Calc
Unpin from (W10) TaskBar

My Preferred Format:

Recent
Recent file #1
Recent file #2
Recent file #3
Recent file #4
etc

Favorite (name changed from Pinned to Favorite to avoid confusion)
MyFavoriteFile.ods

LibreOffice Calc
Unpin from (W10) TaskBar

Thanks for looking. PS. I have no knowledge of how other Office suites handle this.

Edit - Specified "Windows 10" Taskbar. And made my request clearer.

Would you mind to tell which TaskBar you are talking about? LibreOffice runs in several version and a number of operating systems each with various flavors and versions (plenty of choices for TaskBar).

"W10" makes is much clearer - Thanks, but this seems to be a question not related to LibreOffice.

Windows 10 controls the W10 TaskBar. Sorry, I assumed that since LibreOffice Icon acted differently to my other pinned icons then LibreOffice has some say in how it works. Nope.
Now I will forward my question to Microsoft. Thanks for looking.

Hello,

as already mentioned in my comment, this is not a question related to LibreOffice. The taskbar is a function of Windows 10 and thus its configuration is done completely independent of any application and hence independently from LibreOffice (In that sense, other Office suites handle this by no means on their own as well).

Some short research on the internet makes be believe, that the answer to your question in fact is: No, you cannot achieve your preferred ordering of pinned / unpinned items, since Windows 10 taskbar doesn't support any kind of sorting.
