I'm running Windows 7 Ultimate x64 version. I also notice that the Max.Jumplist Items is greyed out with a default setting of 1 and it doesn't allow me to change it. So not sure what I'm doing wrong here. Any suggestions?


That's odd. I'm running it on W7 Ultimate x64 as well, and it works fine for me. Have you tried a uninstall/reinstall?

Windows 7

5. Known Issues
- Changing the maxmimum number of Jumplist-entries changes the number of recently used files all across Windows 7
This can't be fixed at the moment because both numbers are represented by only one number in the registry
- The maximum number of Jumplist-items can't be read from the registry on some computers
- Jumplists can't be created on some computers both problems need further investigation

The last point in the readme.txt file is of note. No idea why it won't work on mine. Guess I will have to wait for a new release.

PJ, right click the taskbar and click properties. On the Start Menu tab, do you have "Store recently opened items in the Start menu and the taskbar" checked?

You cannot create a jumplist with categories if it isn't checked.

Honestly, I'd prefer to leave mine unchecked. I don't want to see my recently opened documents. But if I don't check it, I can't have categories with the jumplist launcher. :/

I'm wondering if there's a way to "Enable" the recently opened items, but prevent them from showing up.

EDIT: Just noticed, the latest version turns this on for you when you try to create a jumplist. So if you download the latest version you should have no issues.

OMG Hedge! Love this thing!! I was hating on the W7 start menu for not having classic style available anymore, but this has settled everything.

Question: I don't understand, or misunderstand, how to make separate/multiple jump lists in the start menu. I have one set up nicely for my various apps, but I would like to make another jump list for other things unrelated. Could you, or someone else explain clearly how to setup multiple instances of jump lists.

Thank you, and Merry Christmas!

You mean two icons on the taskbar? Just create another folder with another instance of the program and pin that one. They'll be independent of each other.

Is there a way to change the icon that displays in the task bar once the application is pinned?

Thanks for the response! I read that tip before, but it didn't seem to work. Now of course it works lol.

Thanks again..and thanks to the dev! I love my jumplists!
