    Disable Jump List per program?


    Is it possible to disable start menu jump lists per program?

    For example, I prefer to see a jump list of recent Excel files for ease of access to actively used spreadsheets. However, I prefer not to see jump lists of recent 7z files or media I've opened in PotPlayer.

    All I've found is an "all or none" approach to jump list activity. Thanks.

    :)

    cannot turn off jump list

    Hi Rohit,

    To address this concern, we suggest that you follow these steps on how to turn off the Jump Lists on Windows 10:

    • Go to Start menu, search Settings, then press
      Enter.
    • Click Personalization.
    • Select Start.
    • Turn off the Show recently opened items in Jump Lists on Start or taskbar.

    Let us know how it goes.

    Regards.

    What is the point of Jump Lists?


    Thanks for the reply, link and confirmation of their purpose.

    It seems then that the sole purpose of Jump Lists are to do the things that I absolutely never want to happen. It just seems so insecure to have lists of all recent activity. Hence the reason why I have always disabled Jump Lists across all programs. Thank you MS for the functionality, but I shall continue to decline and avoid lol

    Thread solved
