    Recent docs keep coming back (Word, Excel icons on taskbar items)


    Apparently a registry tweak is needed to have Windows 10 remove unwanted list of docs (when right-clicking on Word/Excel icons on taskbar).

    Just haven't found the tweak yet and afaik, the guy at Microsoft forums who posted such as response is gone to timbuktoo.*sarc

    Is it possible to pin recent doc to Word icon on taskbar?


    It's possible with WordPad so, I don't see why it wouldn't work with Word.

    Under Win 7 you can pin recent docs to Word pinned on taskbar and freely remove others from the list.
    Don't see these options anymore.

    Is it possible to pin recent doc to Word icon on taskbar?


    When the Word icon (or any other app) is on the taskabar , you should be able to drag and drop the document to the associated icon (Word in your case).
