Windows 7: Question About Jumplist Categories

Question About Jumplist Categories

I like using jumplist categories, but I hate the fact that I have to enable "recently opened items" to use them. I was wondering if there is a way to get jumplist categories without enabling recent items.

I'll show some screenshots of what I mean.

In the above screenshot, I have recent items enabled. If I disable recent items, the jumplist is wiped clean. While I am using a 3rd party program, the principle is the same across all applications. If any program has a category in its' jumplist, you won't be able to see it once you disable recent items.

The only way to even view a jumplist with recent items disabled, is to make a tasklist.

While I can use the jumplist feature by using tasklists, I want categories! Is there any possible way to tweak Windows 7 to not rely on recent items for category support?

You con try this way ( I dont like jumplist).
BTW, to post a screenshot, use snipping tools to get shot, attach the shot using the paper clip (top right on the reply box).

Unfortunately I've already tried this. While it won't show recent items on your taskbar jumplists, it also disables categories.

(And thanks for the tip on attachments, edited main post.)
