    Can't add document to Excel jump list


    I am no longer able to add a new pinned Excel document to the Excel jump list on the Taskbar. I can remove existing items from the jump list, but when I try to pin a new item to it my request is ignored. I can manage my MS Word jump list without any problems.
    I've tried using the "Reset_and_Clear_Recent_Items.bat" script (refrred to elsewhere on this forum)
    to fix this, but it failed because it couldn't find the relevant folders in \AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows\Recent
    Any ideas?

    :)

    Jump Lists Not working for Word 2016 or Excel 2016


    To get a file into a Word or Excel taskbar jump list:
    Create a shortcut to the workbook or document you want in the jump list, rename it as you wish, then copy (Ctl+drag) it onto the Excel or Word icon on the taskbar. It will then be pinned there; i.e. when you right click the icon, you'll see the file. Click it to open it.

    Not quite sure what you want to do -- drop downs etc in EXCEL seem OK and the "Recent documents" in EXCEL gives you a decent number of your recently accessed files.

    For example :

  4. Can't add document to Excel jump list

    Where is my Excel Jump List on Windows 10?

    I used to use the jump list for Excel from the start menu to open recently used Excel files. Now it has gone and I cant find out how to get it back. I am sure it is there somewhere. Does anyone know how I can restore the jump list of recently used Excel
    files?
