Windows 7: List of pinned items

14 Apr 2011   #1

Windows 7 Ultimate x64
List of pinned items

I pinned adobe reader to task bar and then pinned all my PDF documents.(It's called "jump list"...did not know..)

problem is that I can only have 20 links to my documents, when I pin more i can not see them until I remove an existing link(or more, if I added more...) from the pinned and recent menu of Adobe Reader.
Another problem is that I also can not see any recent items when my pinned items list is full(20 items)

I think my screen resolution is the problem, but is there a solution for it?

Senteaf: There is a limit to the number of items that you can pin to the taskbar as they get smaller as you put more on there and then it doubles. I recommend that if you have a lot of .pdf files that you place them in a folder and pin the folder to the taskbar, after all they are all the same type and will open your pdf reader when you open one in the folder.

That's about the best recommendation that I can give. Other than increasing the size of your task bar and wasting real estate on your desktop.

In the Start menu properties, you can vary the number of jumplist entries. I am not sure though whether that only applies to the start menu jumplists but also to the taskbar jumplists.
