Windows Jump List

Posted on Updated on

I don’t know if you are aware of Windows Jump-Lists. It’s a feature the makes it possible to right-click on a taskbar icon and/or right-click on the App in the Start menu, to quickly and easily find and open both a pined and one of maximum ten recently worked on files.

The list is “split” in two. The top shows all Pinned documents and the bottom halve shows the last ten documents you’ve used.

It is an extremely useful feature (actually goes way back to Windows 7).

It is an automatic feature but sometime is gets corrupted, and the easy way to get it back is to turn the feature off and return it on.

If you can’t see/use this feature all you’ll need to do is to turn it on, here is how:

  1. Go to “Settings” and select and click on “Personalisation” or right-click on your desktop and select “Personalise”.
  2. Then change your focus to “Start” (in the left panel)
  3. The right panel changes to “Start” choices of all the ON/OFF switches that you can change, the one you want is last one in the list.
