Windows 7: No Jumplists

No Jumplists

I'm supposed to have a 'jump list' if I right-click a programme in the quick-launch area.

All I have is Programme name and Unpin.

How do I set this system up?

You may try a trick ... right click on taskbar and click on properties . In the upcoming window select the Start menu tab , and in the privacy are check both the boxes . If you dont have the second box checked as in the screenshot , you will not be able to get jumplists

Recent Programs - Turn On or Off

Recent Items - Turn On or Off

Thank you for the tip. Tried it - doesn't work.

I took the Vista Start Menu off and rebooted, but still nothing on right click except Progname and Unpin. I looked at various files with Explorer, but still nothing.

CCleaner's Clear Jumplist History has been unticked for some time.

I think the next thing will to be the ShellView routine in one of your links.

But come to think of it, I've never had jumplists so this has probably been broken since the beginning!

Hello Cheemag,

This may be due to the IsShortcut registry key being removed by mistake, usually if the improper XP method is used to removed the shortcut arrow overlay icon instead of the Vista/Windows 7 method.

Download and merge the lnk (LNK) option in the tutorial below. It will restore the IsShortcut key and all related associations and settings to hopefully fix this for you afterwards.

Default File Type Associations - Restore

Hope this helps,
Shawn

Thanks Shawn, but it didn't work although the lnk option was added. After a reboot there's still only the option to launch or unpin after visiting various files in Explorer and loading files into UltraEdit.

I've had the same issue but it's only been for IE8 jumplists. Never figured out why even though I tried many different things. I just now figured out why I have no IE8 jumplists but I do have them for everything else that's pinned. I just now looked at Search Status gadget and noticed that the indexed total had increased by 1000 in the time it took me to read this thread. I opened up Search Indexer options and noticed that Internet History had been added back in to be indexed. Sure enough, the IE8 jumplists are showing back up. I can uncheck IE 8 History in Indexer options and jumplists are gone. My mystery is solved. I find it amazing that I looked at the Indexer Status gadget total count prior to reading your post, minimized the browser after reading it and during that time IE8 History was some how added back in to make IE8 jumplists work

Hang on a minute here: I have disabled the indexing system for reasons which I now forget. Could this be the problem?

Did that, didn't change anything. Largest file was 13,408 KB. Deleted them all, used Explorer and UltraEdit a bit, but no Jumplists.

I understand that a right click on a pinned item you've used before should give you a menu of files opened recently by that programme, with the ability to open one again with a single click?

Cheemag,

Did you enable the search index to see if it works afterwards? It may take a bit after opening recent items for them to show you though.

I have no Jumplists whatsoever
Yeah, again the same problem. Last installation it sort of fixed itself but now it doesn't. I went to automatic/custom destinations and deleted everything but nothing changed, I don't even have jumplists in explorer. Is there no way to manually add an item to a jumplist?

JumpLists
Hey, Regarding JumpLists for Windows Explorer (or any others that are relavant), do you not think the Pinned Catagory should appear under the Frequent Catagory. I'm all for the JumpLists, but if I pin something shouldn't that mean I want quick access to it. So why put clutter between me and what...
