IE Explorer Quick Launch Icon- No "Frequent" list when right clicked?

Hi all,

All of a sudden I have this problem where I right click on the Internet Explorer Icon on the taskbar and there isn't a Frequent list anymore. I used to have a list but now I must have accidentally done something.

Please help,

Thanks

Hello FonzeGator, and welcome to Seven Forums.

If this in in Quick Launch, then you will not have a Jump List for it. You will only have a Jump List if it's pinned to the taskbar instead. I don't think you meant Quick Launch though.

You can use the tutorial below to reset and clear all Jump Lists. It may take a day or two before it shows back up.

Hope this helps,

Hi guys,

I realised this problem only occurs on Internet Explorer 9. I have Google Chrome pinned to my taskbar and when I right click there's a Most Visited list, same with Libraries and Media Player. I tried reinstalling IE9 still no luck.

Any solution?

ok i found the solution. it did this because i changed the options on IE to disable autocomplete on the address bar for autocomplete history . simply check the option and it will appear after 2 or 3 minutes

I'm happy to hear it worked for you, but I'm not sure why it would.

I tested this by turning off IE AutoComplete. "Frequent" items were still there in IE Jump List until I deleted the IE AutoComplete history of course. However, after opening more tabs in IE, the "Frequent" items started to repopulate in the IE Jump List as expected. Only when I turned off recent items did "Frequent" and "Recent" items in all Jump Lists stop displaying permanently.

Odd.

"Quick Launch" icon for the desktop?
Old Vista habits die hard. I always placed a "Desktop" icon in the quick launch toolbar so that I could instantly close all windows and show the desktop. In 7, I have found that right clicking the taskbar will offer a "Show the desktop" choice which does the same thing. But, is there a way to...

Explorer "list view" wastes space in 7 vs Vista
See attached image. In Vista, with a list view, my 1050px tall display can list 52 items vertically. In 7 it is reduced to 44, because of apparently a larger font and larger gaps in between items. All my settings are default in both cases. This is nearly a 20% decrease in usable space. ...
