Windows 7: Problem With the Jump List - Fails to Work!

Same as above

I have the same issue. None of the repairs above worked.

My problem exists in all of the office programs, though each is different.
Example: Excel will show 4 pinned items & no more, while Word will only show 2 & no more.

It has been quite some time since the last post & yet no fix for this issue. I fear that this might go on for some time longer. =(

In technicomp's reference the custom part is not deleted. Have you cleared all items using this tutorial ? Or, try using this program Jumplist-Backup-Restore if you just want to delete the Word and Excel jump lists.

heltes;

Not sure if you were talking to me or not, but since there has been no action on this thread for months now, i will make that assumption. =)

Yes i have cleared out all of the saved info, i have cleared out just the excel info, & still the same problem. When i clear out the saved info, it then only lets me pin one item & no more.

Obviously it is a problem with microsoft, & i am not going to install a 3rd party program just to be able to use the function, or i should say a similar function because the programs i have seen are not really jumplists. I am not that worried about the function, it is just odd that it broke in this manner.

Hi! bryan666, and heltes, welcome to 7F

Go to:
>Rt. click on Taskbar >click on properties at the bottom.
>Check off both boxes in the Privacy area.
>Then go up and click on customize.
>Make your customization picks in the scroll down area.
>Then at the bottom you can set how many programs and files to display.

There are visuals here:The Complete Guide to the Windows 7 Start Menu | Windows 7 Tutorials

Still have problems?
You can try clearing the settings then OK apply OK go back in and reset the way you like then do the OK apply OK again.

Or do the default to reset, and OK apply OK to get out.

You could try:
SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker
Run in an elevated prompt.

If that checks out okay, then the only other thing I could suggest would be to do a:
Repair Install

ThanXX again, but i have done that all as well & still nothing.

I might just try a straight uninstall & re-install of the office suite & see if that fixes it.

I have openoffice, but never had a jump list problem.

I have noticed that every time I upgrade, it clears from the start menu then comes back and rebuilds its Jlist, so that might work!
