    Jump lists do not show on taskbar but do on Start button

    I want jump lists on both taskbar and Start button, they are only showing on Start button. I have checked the registry key that controls this attribute and the value is "1" so both should show. The "Show recently opened items... " switch in Settings is set to ON. Something is supressing the jump lists on my Taskbar icons. I do get live thumbnails on the icons but that is all. Right clicking does nothing.

    Windows 10 Pro is an upgrade install and did not clean install afterwards. In my opinion not needed. I have run SFC /scannow and got a clean report.

    CORRECTION: The Start button is showing the context menu on right click, not the jump list, unless that IS the jump list.

    Is the registry key value 1 to show the jump lists?

    I gave up trying to troubleshoot the problem and used the Contact Support app on the Start Menu. I was through to a Support tech in two minutes and he fixed the problem with tools I never saw the likes of before. The best guess is that I had corruption somewhere. The system files were sound but something was preventing communication between the apps in the taskbar and whatever driver controls them. Anyway, all is good now.
