Windows 7: Shortcut Problem

Shortcut Problem

My operating system is Windows 7 Home Premium 64 bit. I have a Windows Explorer shortcut on my toolbar and I use it frequently by right clicking on it and selecting one of the frequently used folders that I pinned there. Yesterday all the pinned folders just vanished from the right click menu and now I can't pin new ones. What is happening and how can I fix it?

Hello Hank, and welcome to Seven Forums.

This would be your "Recent" items from the "jump list" of your pinned "Windows Explorer" on the taskbar.

Double check using the tutorial below to make sure that you have recent items turned on. If you do, then you may have cleared them by mistake, and it may take a day to repopulate the jump list as you use the pinned Windows Explorer.

Recent Items - Turn On or Off

Hope this helps for now,
