Windows 10: No recent document for applications on start menu
No recent document for applications on start menu
I used to have Windows7 for many years and lately I upgraded it to Windows10.
On Windows7 I used to have for the application on start menu a black arrow right and when I hover it, I see the recent files I used (see attachment from Windows7 - red circles for the arrows):
Now at my laptop with Windows10 I don't have these arrows.
Any suggestions how can I make them appear again?
Retired from the grind
It depends on if you have something like Classic Shell installed to not see the tiles. Those arrows mean that there is a sub directory with options linked to that shortcut.
You could pin Office applications to the taskbar then when right clicking you can see recent files and can open them pretty quickly.
These list of recent files are called Jump Lists. Windows 10 still has them, but now you get them by right-clicking on the application on the Start menu (or on an application pinned to the taskbar).
If you can't see a jump list this way, check that 'Show recently opened items in Jump Lists on Start or the taskbar' is turned on in:
Settings > Personalise > Start
NB: Be careful with this setting. The way to clear all Jump Lists is turn this setting off then back on again.
