I haven't checked out that link yet, but meanwhile I found this: Changing Jumplist behavior for Windows Explorer/Windows Media Player
The answer the guy gives in the first response does work. He makes it sound like Recent will eventually revert to Frequent. However, later on in that thread, it seems that not only will Recent be permanent, it actually becomes impossible to revert to frequent.
(So be on guard anyone who tries it).
I've used his suggestion and it's worked. Whether it will revert to frequent only time will tell.
And now to check out the link...
This forums has been great so far, thanks for the help.
(Hey waddayou know it's the same link A Guy was talking about. What a coincidence!)
