    Great! Alas it didn't fix my quick access recent file links having no icons... just blank. Don't know when that started and can't find anything on it. Minor problem.

    Recent Files for Programs in Start Menu

    I want to share this with you incase there were others finding a similar issue.

    I was struggling for ages with this and followed steps here.

    Then I just "right clicked" on the program in the "Most Used" at the top of "Start", and there they are, the "Recent" files appear.

    Obviously this works for all programs in the start menu.
    Right click the icon for the program and the recent files should appear.
