Where are the recent items in my Windows 7 jump list?
Posted on October 1, 2009
I just started adding support for the Windows 7 taskbar jumplist to my WPF application, using the excellent .NET wrappers in the Windows API Code Pack.
After creating the jump list, file selection via the Windows common file dialogs should automatically cause entries to appear in the Recent section of the jump list.
But no. What’s going on?
It turns out that everything is working as expected. However, you need to have the “recent items” checkbox enabled for the taskbar.
Once clicked, the Recent items appear on the jump list.
