Re: Recent Items vs. Recent.

The only thing I can come up with is that I have run JunctionBox in the past and it restores default junctions naming that particular one "Recent"

Thanks everyone for all of your efforts.
Should I not have made it clear, though I thought I had, I do, yes I do, want the list. What I want is to control the amount, (the number of items), stored in memory. In other words not the amount/number showing on the list, but also what is not showing (hence me saying in memory). The amount showing I know is controllable. And as you have shown we can choose '0', to show nothing, if we uncheck the box.
What I had mentioned is that if you delete one, another takes its place, and if you delete that one yet another takes its place, etc. etc. What this tells you is that you see a certain amount (based on your choice) but the actual list is actually bigger--what you don't see. I had assumed that if this wasn't doable somewhere, on the 'frontlines' so to speak, then it would be controllable via the registry

Is it possible, Pintree, to post a screenshot of your jumplist just so that it's clear that we can understand which jumplist(s) you mean?

Okay so I found a way to prevent certain programs and items from creating jumplists but it's a bit complicated.

Based on the information here:

windows 7 - Disable Recent Items in Jump Lists for Certain Programs - Super User

It's possible to identify applications that created a jumplist entry and block them.

You get a list of text files to inspect. Then follow the instructions in the link above.

The only other way I know of at the moment is to pin items to keep and clear the rest using Ccleaner or similar. If some items are not cleared you'd need to edit the Ccleaner winapp2.ini file to include anything that's missed.

I believe that Ccleaner set at Default clears jump list.

It's easy to do with just a couple of ticks. Problem solved.
I run Ccleaner at the Default settings before every shut down. Been doing it for years in that fashion. It's been solving a problem I didn't even know I had.

Indeed but it's still not entirely clear which jumplist or jumplists are problematic!

Since the OP cited privacy, I would say that the OP would be interested in limiting the list of items that flows into any jumplist as items are manually deleted.

Setting NTFS folder level permissions via ICACLS might be able to prevent the list of extra items in the first place. Then the jumplists would be limited to only the items shown. This is not what the OP asked for, but it might be acceptable and requires no ongoing labor.

If the OP is concerned about privacy, then the WebCache folder might be worth researching. It too tracks some files that are opened.

I did say the list which pops up on a given program on the taskbar.
Attached are 2 photos--a before and after. In both images if you count the list you'll see an equal amount of files--13. On the 1st list the last title is, "Comodo.rtf", on the 2nd image the last file is,"My Photoshop CS6Notes.docx

Okay I don't have MS Office on my home based machine but I believe that it's possible to limit the recent file list in Word options.

Something like this: How to Disable or Delete Recent Document List in Microsoft Word or Excel

I think finding the correct settings depends upon the version of MS Office.

I can't check settings until I use my work based machine that has MS Office installed. Hopefully limiting that list also cuts down on the mumber of items in the taskbar list.

@UserNameIssues. Regarding webcachev01.dat and the like. It's not something that a casual user would be able to view without effort but I do clear it on a regular basis along with $UsnJrnl, shellbags and quite a few other locations where I have privacy concerns!

Thanks Callender. I will try what you suggest. Please note though, that Word was just an example. The same goes for not only all Office apps, but also all Adobe apps, your media player, Explorer, your Browser and just about anything that you place on the task bar. Try it yourself and you'll see what I mean.
