    Where do you find the list of items pinned to the start menu?


    So the curious cat in my head started chasing this around and been having no success in cornering the mouse.

    Specifically, where does does windows 10 store information about what is pinned to the start menu.

    Attached screenshot shows: I am interested in the stuff in the red box, and most interested in the lower right hand corner the item in blue. I want to know if this is something I pinned, and then it was broken because I deleted the item, or moved the item, or windows update removed the item. Or is this something windows update stuck that that was broken on being stuck there.

    The cat wants to know.

    :)

    how to keep W7 start menu pinned items when upgrading to W10

    Hi,
    Sorry for the late reply.

    Answer for your question, “Windows 7 ability to pin recent opened items in jump lists is the fastest way to access your most used stuff, is this feature discontinued in W10?” “YES”

    You have an option to pin the recent opened items in the jump lists. Windows 10 allows you to display the recent items starting from number 0 to 60. You can choose any number as per your preference and then you will be able to see that number of recent
    items on your Jump Lists. To quickly open any program, you can also use Quick Access on Windows 10.

    It shows you the list of lately and repeatedly opened, mostly visited, tasks or pinned items of any pinned program or currently active program on the Taskbar. When you make a right click on any pinned item on the Taskbar or on any running program, you can
    see a list of certain items. Those items are different for files, folders, and websites. The pinned and recent items are visible in case of folders. You are also provided with the facility to pin the recent items. And the Jump Lists of file show you the recently
    used file along with an option to pin them to the taskbar. But the websites have different sections like most visited, recently closed, and tasks.


    Note: The number of Jump Lists on windows 10 is 10 by default.

    If you are facing issue with jump list/ or you want to have more than 10 jump list to be view on windows 10 after upgrading, I suggest you to follow the steps below to change the settings.
    How to Show Jump Lists on Start and Taskbar in Windows 10

    8. If you prefer not to see the Jump Lists, toggle it to off in the Start of Personalization category of Settings app.

    9. Execute a right click on a program on Taskbar and you can no more see the Jump Lists items.
