Secure Browser Bank Mode Pinned App
« on: March 09, 2023, 09:46:57 AM »
Dear Avast,
with the previous version of Avast Secure Browser Bank Mode it was possible to run any program from pinned app in the system tray (althoug issues were present), with this version (110.0.20215.104 (Official Build) (64-bit)) it is possible to run only Browsers. Other pins simply do nothing.

More you can't unpin Edge from the system tray, it goes away but it comes back with the next run.

Thnak you. Best regards.

If you switch back to "Standard Desktop" you can run the apps pinned to the taskbar.
When your in Bank Mode, there is on access to your taskbar.

Hello Bob, thanks for reply. It's very kind of you.

I read what you wrote but I was meaning the Task Bar inside Bank Mode, to say... I need to use the Calc inside Bank Mode, once it was possibile, now itsn't. Same for Notepad. And so on. I can just use Browsers pinned link.

And I'm not able to remove Edge pinned link from Bank Mode Task Bar either.

See attachment, please
Thank you

Hello Bartleboom,
I can confirm the problem. I had no problem adding notepad.exe but I can't use it.
I've reported the problem to Avast. Let's see if that helps.

Hi Bob, sorry for late. Bad Times. It makes me come back to many years ago, 'Good Times (Bad times)' by Edie Brickell. Nice times.

Pinned issue solved, thank you very much and thank you Avast Team, unfortunately it has not been yet solved flashing bar, crashing or freezing Windows with some pinned applications, maybe I will update the old post:
