  1. Context menu of Recent item of pinned taskbar missing


    So this happened to me quite recently, the context menu of recent items from pinned taskbar items is blank now. I did not install anything new recently too, I have tried disabling context menu that are not from Windows using CCleaner's tool and also shexview but still can't get it to work. I really want to pin items and remove recent items. Can someone advise me on what to do next?

  2. Limit on quick access items in november update of file explorer Win10

    Did a right click on File Explorer pinned to my Taskbar.

    Did a second click on a "Recent" item to pin it to the QA "Pinned"

    The result is that nothing happened - Pinned remains at 12 items.

    Same outcome when I attempt to drag.

    What is going on?

    Then I open the File Explorer and compare the items -

    I see an item missing from the RT click menu.

    Attempt to pin a "Recent" item - to make it available on the RT click menu - no luck.

    I now have 22 pinned items + two unpinned (24 total) on the open QA menu.

    The RT click menu remains at 12 pinned + but now there are 12 unpinned.

    Now - why the difference in the number of pinned in the same program of the identical items?

    The QA became momentarily unresponsive when I attempted to drag items onto it.

    Thanks for taking the time to reply.

  3. Pin to taskbar - Windows 10 Ent. x64 (Ver. 1511 - OS Build 10586)

    Hi,

    If you're using the "InvokeVerb" method to Pin items to Taskbar, note that it no longer works in Windows 10. The "Pin to taskbar" verb doesn't even list when the context menu entries are enumerated using script.

    There is a workaround, using a third-party tool. Check out:

    Context menu of Recent item of pinned taskbar missing

    Can you post the whole screenshot. Recent Items can clear over the set number allowed in Files and Folders in the Control Panel. If you want a better menu, use either Start8 or Classic Shell. Also toss CCleaner and use Bit Bleach if you wish to delete anything that could be private.

  5. oh, I meant the context menu when I right click the items under recent, so as you can see that grey box on the right is me right-clicking the item. It used to show options like "pin", "remove from recent", "properties", "open file location", etc. somewhere along those options.

    Sorry I wasn't clear earlier

    Again, see my first post. We need the screenshot of the whole screen with what you are trying to state. It makes things a whole lot easier to help you.

    Hello RustyHippo, and welcome to Ten Forums. *Smile

    I believe he's referring to the "Pin" and "Unpin" icons not showing on the right side of the items in the jump list.

    Does it still work if you click on the area where the icon should be?

    You could try running a SFC /SCANNOW command to see if it may help if a corrupted system file is at fault.

  8. Context menu of Recent item of pinned taskbar missing

    I don't really see the point of putting a whole screenshot when there's nothing more to see since the context menu is empty. But here it is:

    Context menu of Recent item of pinned taskbar missing [​IMG]


    the pin and unpin icon is still there when I hover my cursor over it, but when I right click the items, the context menu is empty. It used to show options like "open file location", "properties", "remove from recent", etc

    sfc did detect corrupted files, fixed them and rebooted. scanned again, still corrupted files, trying out using dism to restore now, will update later
