Jumplists Turned Off?

Hey Guys,

I've got an odd thing happening.. it seems the Jumplists feature has been turned off and I can't for the life of me figure out how to turn them back on.

When I right click an icon in the taskbar all I get for options are the following..

{Program Name}
Unpin from taskbar

Any suggestions?

Hello Mitchell,

Double check to make sure that you have Recent Programs and Recent Items turned on. Afterwards, it may take a bit of opening recent items from these icons for them to show up though.

Hope this helps,
