    Some application stop updating recent document list


    Windows 10 64-bit Pro, 1903


    I've enabled the feature to show the recent document list for the application. I found that some application will stop updating the list after a while. How can I fix it?


    Thanks

    :)

    No recent document for applications on start menu


    These list of recent files are called Jump Lists. Windows 10 still has them, but now you get them by right-clicking on the application on the Start menu (or on an application pinned to the taskbar).

    If you can't see a jump list this way, check that 'Show recently opened items in Jump Lists on Start or the taskbar' is turned on in:
    Settings > Personalise > Start

    NB: Be careful with this setting. The way to clear all Jump Lists is turn this setting off then back on again.

    rECENT DOCUMENTS

    Hi LizFG

    Windows 10 stores recent document lists in many places, it depends on the different application as to where that list is stored

    What application are you trying to find recent documents for?

    Also, in the meantime, open Windows File Explorer, on the left, click 'Quick Access' do you see the document(s) you are looking for listed there?

    How to find a list of Recent Documents in Windows 10

    Hi,

    Recent document option has been removed on Windows 10. Instead, on Windows 10 you have an option recent files. To access it, follow the steps:

    • Press Windows Key + E.
    • Under File Explorer, select Quick access.
    • Now, you will find a section Recent files which will display all the recently viewed files/documents.

    Hope it helps.
