Windows 7: Problem with the taskbar

Problem with the taskbar

I accidentally unpinned Windows Explorer form the taskbar. However, from the start menu I pinned it back and it no longer shows stuff like recent in the jumplist.
It just has "Windows Explorer" and "Unpin this programme from taskbar"
How can I fix this?
Thanks.

Drag a file or a folder to the taskbar. That should fix that.

Do you have recent items enabled? "Taskbar and Start Menu Properties" > Start Menu > Privacy. Or is that information be deleted like CCleaner would do?

ok unpin the existing explore from taskbar.
Then open libraries. Now pin that to taskbar.

Hope this helps.

You can also go to the windows folder and drag the explorer.exe to the taskbar

I do have it enabled, and I also have CCleaner; but CCleaner didn't remove recent it was when I unpined it :/

That didn't work; it still doesn't show recent files, just the two options.
