Windows 7: Jumps list does only show local files

Jumps list does only show local files

Hi there,

I was curious if the jump list of Win 7 is only showing local files. On my PC it is not showing any recent files from network shares. Only local files.
I wanted to check with you if there is any setting or policy which might restrict network files from appearing under "Recent" in the Jump List. And if there was any, can you please tell me where I can find it? I would like to check the status on my PC too.


BTW: The jump list is the context menu which appears when you right click a pinned program like Excel, Word, etc

Hold on, I found the policy:
User Configuration\Administrative Templates\Start Menu and Taskbar\Do not display or track items in Jump Lists from remote locations

Thread solved!
