When you add multiple to-do lists to the Microsoft To-Do app, you need to access the app to view each list. It can be a tedious task, you can also miss important deadlines if you forget to open the app. Therefore, pinning your important tasks to the Start menu can be extremely useful.
Pinning your Microsoft task lists to the Start menu will allow you to see all your important tasks right from the start. Since all pending tasks appear right in front of every time you open your Start screen or Start menu on your PC, you never miss important things that need quick action.
Here’s how you can pin your task lists to the Windows 10 Start menu.
1]Open the Microsoft To-Do app.

- If you don’t have the Microsoft To-Do app, you can download it from the Windows Store. This is a free app, just make sure you are using the latest version of the app as well as Windows 10.
