    The custom toolbar solution is also interesting but I'm not accustomed to look in the right corner to start my programs. I'll set one up and try it out over the next few days.

    Here it is on the left, at least as close to the left corner as I can get it!

    The advantage in using a custom Toolbar is that it is native to Windows.

    Moving it to the left is just a drag operation
    unlock the Taskbar
    grab the left side of the toolbar (a move arrow appears) and drag it as far left as possible
    -> it's a bit tricky since the drag often stops midway - just grab it again and drag it further left
    grab the right side of the toolbar and drag it as far left as possible to collapse the toolbar contents.

    You can put as many shortcuts s you wish in the toolbar for easy access.

    There's also a nice utility called Bins that helps manage items on the Taskbar - it's not free, but it's not expensive either

    I haven't tested it on Win10 though.

    Why not use Classic Shell? You can add any folder anywhere as a cascading menu.

    I've just tried jumplist extender, it's the one I'm looking for but it doesn't list the recent used files for e.g. Excel.
    Does anyone one it is still maintained?
