Windows 7: Changing number of jumplist entries?

31 Mar 2010   #1

Windows 7 Pro, x64
Changing number of jumplist entries?

I want the Windows Explorer taskbar icon to be able to hold more jumplist entries than it does. Currently it is divided into three categories. "Pinned", "Frequent" and "Recent". Problem is that the total of all these is a fixed amount. Something like 14 pinned, 3 Frequent and 3 Recent. That number may not be exactly right but it's somewhere around there. If you add above that in one category, it subtracts it from the others. This should have been set up to be able to go as high as you have screen, the way Windows XP Start menu did.

Is there a way to add more entries than currently allowed?
