Windows 7: Context Menu of Jumplist Items Missing "Open file location"?

Context Menu of Jumplist Items Missing "Open file location"?

Is there anyway to add the "Open file location" to the context menus of files that appear in jumplists?

For example, my media player is pinned to the task bar. Right clicking on it brings up the jumplist with a list of recent TV episodes I've watched. It would be nice to have the ability to right click on the last episode I've watched and "Open file location" to select the next episode.

I used to do that from the "Recent Items" menu, until I moved my media files to an external drive. Now "Recent Items" doesn't keep track of files opened from external drives!!

Can you help me, please?
