Windows 7: Stuff missing in my Task-Bar button/app popups

Stuff missing in my Task-Bar button/app popups

I used to be able to right-click buttons in the Task Bar and get a popup that listed the last documents/links/etc. that I had opened with that app along with other shortcuts for the app. A while back (beyond my earliest restore point), that changed. I still get the popups but no more listings of the last resources used and other things that are missing in those popups. Has anyone experienced this bizarre behavior? I have no clue what caused it or, more importantly, how to undo it. Thanks!

If you're missing the list of Frequent sites, right-click the taskbar and choose Properties, then click the Start Menu tab. Make sure “Store and display recently opened items in the Start menu and the taskbar” is checked. (Found this via my good friend Mr Google!)

Thanks for the reply. That is not what I'm looking for. The popups to which I refer are the ones you get when you right-click any one of the buttons/shortcuts on the Task Bar.
