    Jump Lists Not working for Word 2016 or Excel 2016


    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 arrggggg!

    But they work for IE and notepad and file explorer but not for firefox or photoshop elements.

    I've tried deleting the files from:
    %APPDATA%\Microsoft\Windows\Recent\AutomaticDestinations
    %APPDATA%\Microsoft\Windows\Recent\CustomDestinations
    and rebooting but to no avail

    any ideas anyone????

    I really need jump lists working for Excel & Word.



    :)

    Metadata not showing and cannot be edited in Explorer

    I have exactly the same problem. I can add/update metadata in file explorer in Word 2016 files, but not Excel 2016 files. Excel 97-2003 files I can add/update metadata in file explorer. In Excel 2016 itself, I can add/update metadata, but it doesn't show
    in file explorer.

    Deleted Apps showing using windows 10 search (with or without Cortana)

    I had previously uninstalled Office 2016 to make way for Office 2013, as my trial for Office 2016 expired, however, whenever I search for Word in the start menu, Word 2016 will always pop up, while Word 2013 will not. The same goes for other
    Office products, such as Excel, OneNote and PowerPoint.

    Is there a way to fix this?

    Hmm, jumplists work perfect for me with office 2007. You aren't the only one having this issue

    Plus, did you set the number of items for the jumplists when you right click on taskbar, properties, click on the start menu tab and set the number of items you want showing.

    thanks for the reply but don't forget this is windows 10 - those options are no longer in that place - but yes I've got it set ok as it works in IE & file explorer, it's driving me crazy this fault... I've got a feeling it's a bug... :-(

    Hi there

    what's your Office 2016 version release

    Mine is :

    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 :

    I have the same version.
    If I don't have word pinned to my taskbar then I drop a word doc on the task bar it creates a shortcut to Word on my task bar with a pinned entry for that file - BUT when you click the file is says it doesn't exist then if you right click the file and click open it works just fine - so the problem gets even more strange Jump Lists Not working for Word 2016 or Excel 2016 :)

    but if you right click text.docx and click open it works...

    and the recent list never appears on the right click menu....

    something somewhere is very confused - that includes me at the moment!

    It's on Windows 10 RTM 10240, but I notice now that they removed the option on 10586.

    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.
