You're most welcome Willy.

No, John (z3r010) owns the site. I just help and contribute as much as I'm able to. I'm usually living on the computer, but every once in a while something outside the ship's window catches my eye though.

Hello Mohamad,

It looks like you may have cleared your recent items that would also clear you jump lists. If so, then as you open items in Windows Explorer, they should eventually (usually within 24 hours) start showing up as "Recent" items in the jump lists. When they do, you should be able to pin them again.

For now, double check to make sure that you have Recent Items turned on and set to display however many items you want to display in the jump lists.

Recent Items - Turn On or Off

Jump Lists - Change Number of Recent Items to Display

Hope this helps for now,
Shawn

Dear Brink,
Thanks for the feedback

I cleared all jump lists, rebuild those for WE and than restore all except those for WE from recycle bin.
That works for me

Regards,
Mohamad

Hi Brink, hope you're well

I wanted to add 'pin to jumplist' context control to the fixlist, but I'm stuck.

My situation is that, whever I'd like to be able to pin a location (explorer jump list), it's the current. It's not common. It's... not listed as recent.

I see the data being created when I monitor my user process of pinning some random folders I recently visited... but Murphy's Law usually dictates that my intended target location isn't an option...

Any workaround? I'd be willing to forsake recent, if, for example, I could call a quick batch that would (ideally) clear (only explorer's) recent history, so that EVERY location I then visit is an option to pin...

Or a shell resource hack?! (Pin current)?

Just a thought... If not it's more favorites for me
