    Unable to copy file from Excel jump list


    Hi, With Win7 I used to be able to copy a recent or pinned file from any MS Office jump list by right clicking and selecting Copy from the context menu
    For Win 10 the menu is still there but when you r/c the file it doesn't appear to be in focus and consequently nothing is saved to the clipboard
    This is certainly the case for Excel and Word , I expect it's the same for all Office apps
    Can't find anything applicable in the usual places, any ideas?

    :)

  2. Where is my Excel Jump List on Windows 10?

    I used to use the jump list for Excel from the start menu to open recently used Excel files. Now it has gone and I cant find out how to get it back. I am sure it is there somewhere. Does anyone know how I can restore the jump list of recently used Excel
    files?

  3. On upgrade to Windows 10 1607, jump list arrows no longer appear on start menu items

    Jump lists are turned on in settings, but they only appear in items on the taskbar. Jump list arrows do not appear next to "most used" apps in the Start menu. This is a major annoyance, because I like to launch my Excel and Word files from the start menu,
    and now the jump lists are only usable in the taskbar, which means I have to pin a bunch of stuff to the taskbar to have jump lists.

    Is there a simple way to get jump lists active again on the Start menu?

  4. Unable to copy file from Excel jump list

    I have the same issue, but the items are available to copy. However, when I try to paste, the context menu for paste is not enabled, and other methods for pasting do not work either. So I agree that the items are probably not even on the clipboard.

    BTW, this is not limited to Excel or even Office. Images I edit with Paint don't work either.

    I was hoping that KB3081424 would fix this issue but no dice (it did however fix the start menu pin/unpin issues tho)
    I have posted this issue via the Win feedback tool
    Any one got any ideas?

    Hi, I seem to have all of the issues- no jump lists available at all on either the task bar or the start menu- which is a real pain- any ideas how I can get this sorted?
