Works as advertised, however I did find that you don't really need to reboot - restarting explorer.exe will do.

Hi,

I ran the batch file three days ago, I've shutdown, restarted or logged-off/on several times since - and the Jump lists are NOT getting repopulated, yet the MRU lists in Word, PDF xChange, Irfan View etc, are intact.

What I would like is this :
to have the Jump Lists populate as documents are opened, and have them cleared when I shutdown, restart or log-off, except for the items I explicitly pin to the Jump List, which would persist until I explicitly remove them.

Is this possible.
thanks pjd

Hello pjd,

You could use the tutorial below to set Windows to clear recent items on exit.

Clear Recent Items and Documents on Exit of Windows 7


Double check to see if you have a Recent Items folder at the location below.

%APPDATA%\Microsoft\Windows

If not, and you have a Recent folder instead, then do what's in the blue note box at the top of the tutorial below to see if it helps.

In addition, double check using the same tutorial below to make sure that you have recent items turned on.

Thank you for responding . I thought a little bit and drew a conclusion that it would be better to create a separate thread as my problem is only partly related to the problem you‘re talking about in your tutorial. Also, this shall catch more attention from other people who may provide a working solution. Here‘s the link.

Win10 rollback broke my jump lists, this post fixed it!

Hey thanks a lot for this solution, it worked for me!

I had done a rollback from Windows 10 to Windows 7 Pro and that had somehow broken the application-specific jump lists. Am glad I stumbled upon this post!
