Windows 7: Windows 7 Taskbar icons no longer showing pinned / recent documents

Windows 7 Taskbar icons no longer showing pinned / recent documents

So I upgraded to Windows 10 and reverted back to Windows 7. And now my pinned / recent documents aren't showing on the taskbar icons.

For example, I have Excel on the taskbar icons. Before the upgrade, I was able to view recently opened documents and even pinned them to the icons which I can view by simple right clicking the icons on the taskbar.

How do I get this back?

Example: PS doesn't show my pinned or recent items. Excel does.... Word doesn't.

I have what appears to be the same problem.

After reverting to Windows 7, I can no longer pin items to the Notepad, MS Streets & Trips, or OpenOffice Calc buttons on my task bar.

Nope. I finally upgraded to Windows 10 and declared victory.
