I'm running the latest version of Windows 10 Pro and I have somewhat of a quirky problem. My taskbar is at the bottom
of the screen but I have it expanded to 2 rows, e.g. twice as "thick" vertically as the default. When I right-click on any pinned icons on the bottom row and move the mouse up vertically to access the jump list of that particular program, the jump list
disappears. It seems to be a focus problem of sorts as if I resize the taskbar back to the default, the issue doesn't happen.
Jump List pinned shortcuts working fine on Notepad, Excel & Word, but pinned jump list shortcuts for File Explorer do not work. I click on them and nothing happens. I've tried removing them and re-pinning, but the only shortcut that works is the file explorer one. Is this a known bug or just on my Windows 10 install?
Where you open your jump list in File Explorer and then click on something like your Videos or Downloads Folder to have the jump list close like normal, but then nothing open? I also noticed that when I right click on the start button, I can't get any of the options on the menu to launch either.
With Win7 I used to be able to copy a recent or pinned file from any MS Office jump list by right clicking and selecting Copy from the context menu.
For Win 10 the menu is still there but when you r/c the file it doesn't appear to be in focus and consequently nothing is saved to the clipboard.This is certainly the case for Excel and Word , I expect it's the same for all Office apps.Can't find anything applicable in the usual places?
1. Recent folders in explorer jump list are not updating. They seem to be random folders from my second HDD and clicking on them says the folder has been moved (which is not true) and it offers to delete the shortcut. Deleting also does nothing, item still remains. Disabling recent folder in settings > personalization > start also has no effect
2. If I tick 'show recently used files in quick access' in folder options it also has no effect. When I open folder options after this it is unticked again.
3. I can't pin anything to quick access, I get 'parameter is incorrect' error.
In versions prior to 10 one could drag and drop items in jump list. In Windows 10 it's different (but certainly not better. Why do they mess with this stuff????)
In Windows 10, if you open File Explorer, you can drag and drop the pinned folders under the Quick Access header on the left. When you right click File Explorer icon pinned to taskbar, the items will be in the same order as established in the Quick Access heading in File Explorer.
My taskbar is filling up pretty quickly and I wanted to know if there is a way (if possible without 3rd party apps) to create custom jump lists for the taskbar in the latest version of Windows 10. Here's a crude Paint job of what I had in mind....
I've been recently having a problem with duplicated items in taskbar and broken Jump Lists. I'm now using Windows 10 but this problem occurred in Windows 8.1 too but then it somehow fixed itself. Some programs that I pin to taskbar have a tendency to duplicate themselves when clicked on. For now, I've noticed this behaviour only in Skype and Spotify but it's still very annoying since duplicate icons take valuable taskbar space and even more - make Jump Lists of those programs broken, meaning that you can still see tasks program developers provided but after you click them nothing happens.
I've tried loads of times pinning, repinning, deleting whole User Pinned folder from %appdata%/Microsoft/Internet Explorer/Quick Launch, clearing Jump List folders manually and automatically with Command Prompt commands as suggested here with no luck. The only thing I did achieve was when I pinned Skype to taskbar in my other user account, then copied the newly created shortcut from Use Pinned folder to my User Pinned folder - this made Skype Jump Lists working but duplicate icon in taskbar remained.
I've recently found a tutorial which may force taskbar to use only one icon per app but I can't check this right now as 7+ Taskbar Tweaker isn't yet officially available for Windows 10 users.
I don't know if this is related but I can't pin any Control Panel item to Quick Access whilst I can pin folders. Interesting side of this is that pinned Control Panel items appear in File Explorer's Jump List but after clicked I get a message that item is unavailable and that it might have been moved, renamed or removed.
I want jump lists on both taskbar and Start button, they are only showing on Start button. I have checked the registry key that controls this attribute and the value is "1" so both should show. The "Show recently opened items... " switch in Settings is set to ON. Something is supressing the jump lists on my Taskbar icons. I do get live thumbnails on the icons but that is all. Right clicking does nothing.
Windows 10 Pro is an upgrade install and did not clean install afterwards. In my opinion not needed. I have run SFC /scannow and got a clean report.
CORRECTION: The Start button is showing the context menu on right click, not the jump list, unless that IS the jump list.
Is the registry key value 1 to show the jump lists?
I'm trying to add my own program (AkelPad) to the list of Default programs.I created and applied the reg-file, but the program still is not in the list.
Code: Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESOFTWAREAkelPadCapabilities]"ApplicationDescription"="AkelPad - Text Editor" "ApplicationIcon"="C:Program FilesAkelPadAkelPad.exe,0""ApplicationName"="AkelPad" [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESOFTWAREAkelPadCapabilitiesFileAssociations]".txt"="AkelPadText.txt"".ini"
How to add my own program that doesn't appear in Default programs list?
I updated my tablet from win 8.1 to win 10. I pinned the store app to my taskbar and is was there for a while, but then disappeared. When you point the mouse to where the icon should be, the app is there and will open, but you see no icon. This also happens for the netflix icon and the shazam icon. All other icons are okay. I honestly am not sure if this started before the upgrade, I think it did, but not positive. I have tried to unpin and repin them, but the same thing happens.
I just upgraded from Windows 8.1 to Windows 10 yesterday and overall I've been happy with it. However, I note one strange behavior: the File Explorer icon seems to disappear sometimes from the Taskbar. I created a Desktop shortcut for File Explorer, but when I right click on it there is no option to pin it to the Taskbar. What's going on here?
Since I upgraded to windows 10 and a new cheap ram 4 gb I have had this problem where the explorer.exe process refreshes.
It is the same thing that happens with android smartphones when you have open to many programs and when you try to go to home everything disappears and appears again because it is refreshing the home process.
Or used to happen with window 7 or 8 where everything disappears and you had to open explorer from task manger to continue to use the computer again if you remember.
Now this happens when i am using chrome because that is all I do on the computer and chrome is known for eating ram and the ram is constantly over 60% .
This happens too frequently it is not one of those things that happened once in a while like it would with windows xp 7 or 8.
These are my theories but I still don't know what cause this.
Do i need to add more ram or is this a bug from windows 10 ?
I've read many posts about hidden icons or icons showing wrong images etc, but my problem seem to be different from others.
When I log on after a reboot, I only see the search icon and the Task View icon in the task bar even though I have several other programs pinned.
If I open a pinned program I see it in the task bar and have the option to unpin the r-click menu, but if I close it, the icon disappears again.
If I open a program that is not pinned, and I r-click and pin the program, the task bar seems to 'refresh' and suddenly I see all my pinned programs in the task bar - and they all work when clicking on them.
How I can make the task bar show the pinned programs without having to pin a new program after every reboot?
I've been running Windows 10 since last August, after upgrading from Win 8.1 on my Asus laptop.
I use the taskbar (launchbar?) to start my favourite programs, such as Excel, and some 8-10 files are stacked on the icon so I can right-click the icon and select/open my desired file.
That was until approximately 10 days ago, when clicking on a file name only opened Excel, and I have to do a file/open within Excel to get the file I want open. Other programs that are also on the bar e.g. my PDF program, still opens the file name I click on.
Taskbar won't autohide. I discovered a program icon in the system tray, that I can exit, and the taskbar will autohide. I uninstalled the program, but the icon keeps reappearing in the system tray, and the taskbar again won't hide. I ran CCleaner, and PC DeCrapifier, but the program in not listed, so I can't remove it. Upon computer restart, the Icon returns to the system tray, and the taskbar won't hide. The program Icon is not listed in the settings for the notifications.
Any way to increase the amount of items can be stuffed into a taskbar jumplist. My reason is, I've used the jumplist feature in Windows 7 for Steam to give quicker access to some of the options you can only access by right-clicking the tray icon (i.e., set friends status to online/away/offline, open settings, server browser, screenshots, etc.) using these settings:
In Windows 7 all of these options were displayed in the jump list with the last launched game at the top, in Windows 8/8.1 it seemed that they lowered the number of jumplist items by 1, as I no longer had the most recent game at the top, in Windows 10 Tech Preview, it was the same as Windows 8 until a recent build which redecorated all of the jumplists.
So jump lists via my taskbar and windows 10, I'm not having much joy. I've just got a new desktop (Jan 2016) with windows 10 pre-loaded and I installed office 2010 - jump lists didn't work - so I thought I'll uninstall and install office 2016 64bit - jump lists still don't work....
But they work for IE and notepad and file explorer but not for firefox or photoshop elements. I've tried deleting the files from:
