When right clicking an icon on the taskbar Windows displays a small menu. This always contains a button to pin/unpin the application on the taskbar.
I frequently use this menu to open new windows of applications and often accidentally hit the pin/unpin button. Since I do not frequently change the applications which are pinned to my taskbar I do not really need these buttons to be there all the time.
Is there a way to hide these buttons so that I can no longer hit them by accident?
