    I didn't see 'Start_JumpListItems' in the screenshots you have: The keys I saw that are the relevant ones were 'JumpListItems_Maximum', which in your screenshot was set at '15,' and 'StartMenuInit', a separate key, which is set at 11.
    Wow, I hadn't noticed that one before, nor had I seen it mentioned in this thread. Thanks for the lead on that setting. Unfortunately, I just tried setting that to 30 (decimal), same as the JumpListItems_Maximum. Still seems to have no effect. Max of 12 recent items appear if nothing is pinned, and 11 items combined if some are pinned (presumably 1 less because of extra space needed to separate and label each of the two lists). I believe that's exactly how it behaved before I changed anything.

    That sucks that nothing changed--now, interestingly enough, when I opened Regedit on my PC, I didn't see 'Start_JumpListItems' in that section of my registry either--just the 'JumpListItems_Maximum'. Now, I'm wondering if I should have messed with 'StartMenuInit.'

    The only additional key I have is the 'JumpListItems_Maximum' set to whatever I choose and it works no matter what.

    Hi Edwin, could you share the contents of the key in question?
    (I think a regedit > export, and copy and paste)

    Curious to see if this is doable on '7 too

    Note that on Windows 7, you just:

    1. Right-click an open part of the Taskbar
    2. Select Properties
    3. Select the Start Menu tab
    4. Click the Customize... button
    5. Set the value for "Number of recent items to display in Jump Litsts" at the bottom of the window.

    The problem in Windows 10 is that is missing. Apparently for most users the JumpListItems_Maximum registry key addresses this.

    For whatever reason, this doesn't work on any of my computers. They are members of the same domain (so maybe there's some group policy in effect, though this part of the registry seems to hold whatever values I set there), but other than that they have little in common.

    Ah, I was wondering if this max key could be added to get crazy long recent/pinned jumplists, guess not.

    Hi Guys. I think I found the magic value! Procmon is your friend!!! I let it run while a created a new textfile to be the most recent item on my Notepad jumplist. In Procmon, filtering for paths containing "JumpListItems" show the following:

    RuntimeBroker.exe RegQueryValue HKCU\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Advanced\JumpListItems_Maximum NAME NOT FOUND

    That certainly looked promising. And indeed, here is my jumplist without the value:

    Attachment 57885

    And here it is with JumpListItems_Maximum created as a DWORD & set to 0x20:

    Attachment 57884

    Have fun!!!

    Keith, I've still not been able to get this to work on a single Windows 10 computer. To be fair, the total number of Win 10 systems I've tried is only 3, and all are part of the same domain. I'm the sysadmin though and now that we've talked about this issue, this has become a core reason users want to stick with Windows 7. Any suggestions what might be overriding the JumpListItems_Maximum key on my systems?

    Hi,

    Very useful thread. Changing JumpListItems_Maximum worked for me.
    I have a related query. I was sure that there used to be a couple of features of jump lists in W10 that have now disappeared, but now I am starting to doubt myself and I'd be grateful if other people could confirm.

    i) I thought that hovering over a jump list entry used to display the full pathname, which was useful when there were multiple entries with similar or the same names.
    ii) I also thought that the context menu for a jump list item used to show the option to Open File Location.

    Have I dreamt this?

    Regards
    Jamie

    fraserj,

    I do still see the full path name when I hover over an item in my Jump Lists (on both Start and the Taskbar). I wonder if the ability to display more than 11 items and seeing the full pathname are mutually exclusive. (I'd choose to display more than 11 items, given the choice).

    On the other hand, like you, I no longer see an option to "Open file location," which I too recall seeing when I first upgraded to Windows 10. At that time, before I realized about the limit of 11 items, I had thought that Jump Lists in Windows 10 had improved on those in Windows 7.

    I also had a new hypothesis about why JumpListItems_Maximum is not working for me. Could it be related to the Start settings (Settings -> Personalization -> Start):

    I have everything set to On except "Show more tiles" and "Use Start full screen". What do others have for these?

    On "Choose which folders appear on Start", I have everything set to On except for Videos and HomeGroup.

    Could any of these settings be forcing the 11 item limit?
