Windows 7: Jump List History location?

26 Jun 2009   #1

Jump List History location?

Hello again ,

there is something confusing me about the new 'Jump List', and to explain that i made following screenshots:

Jump List History location?-before.png

As you see on this screenshot, Paint stores a list of recently accessed files in the Jump List and in the Registry under:
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Applets\Paint\Recent File List
But even after deleting the Registry Key above, the History in the Jump List does not go away as in this screenshot:

The same thing applies for : Wordpad, Media Player and IE's Frequent List...

I just want to know where are those "Jump List" History-Lists stored?

It's quite a while ago since you asked, but when searching for a similar problem I happened to stumble across both this question and the answer.

Have a look here: Developing for the Windows 7 Taskbar ? Jump into Jump Lists ? Part 2 - Windows 7 for Developers - The Windows Blog

The answer is in the second part, "Step 1". It uses the standard recent functionality, which consists of a folder full of shortcuts. I found two folders, one general and one for Office:

Does anyone know where the jump lists are stored? It's got to be in the registry somewhere, but I can't find it.

The Jump Lists for all other programs display recent items correctly. It's only IE 8 that isn't remembering/displaying recently browsed sites - History/Frequent. Um, ideas?! THANK YOU!
