    Increase Number of Items in Jump Lists


    As title says I'm wanting to know if there's a way to increase the amount of items can be stuffed into a taskbar jumplist.

    My reason is, I've used the jumplist feature in Windows 7 for Steam to give quicker access to some of the options you can only access by right-clicking the tray icon (i.e., set friends status to online/away/offline, open settings, server browser, screenshots, etc.) using these settings:

    In Windows 7 all of these options were displayed in the jump list with the last launched game at the top, in Windows 8/8.1 it seemed that they lowered the number of jumplist items by 1, as I no longer had the most recent game at the top, in Windows 10 Tech Preview, it was the same as Windows 8 until a recent build which redecorated all of the jumplists.

    Now I'm left with these options:

    Yeah, its a shame, they seem to have removed the feature for customizing the number of items in the jump list. In 7 and 8 you could do it from the taskbar settings or directly in the registry. The same registry mod didn't work for me in 10:



    Manually in Registry Editor

    1. Open the Start Menu, then type regedit in the search line and press enter.

    2. In regedit, navigate to: (See screenshot below)
    HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Advanced
    3. In the right pane of Advanced, right click on Start_JumpListItems and click on Modify. (See screenshot above)

    4. Select (dot) Decimal. (See screenshot below)
    5. Enter how many (0 to 60) recent items you want displayed in Jump Lists, then click on OK. (See screensho above)
    NOTE: The default number to display is 10.

    6. Close Regedit.

    On my computers, both Win10 Home and Win10 Pro have a default value of 25 in the registry, but in fact, the taskbar only shows a maximum of 10.

    Yep, the registry entry is useless in Windows 10. It's also pretty sloppy that Microsoft didn't clean up useless registry keys from older versions of Windows.

    Hi

    I canmake a small update here.

    I haveinstalled a fresh version of Windows 10 Enterprise. This version, do not havethe Registry key that’s called "Start_JumpListItems". It’s a version that’s downloaded from MSservers and its still the same version that they host today.

    Thismeans, they have cleaned up the old Register Keys (I assume you have upgradedfrom Windows 8 or old preview version of Windows 10 and that’s the reason youstill see it whenever it do nothing).

    I havebeen in touch with MS tech support and they are just focusing ont that I missthe "Start Menu" tab under "Taskbar and Start Menu Properties"but obviously MS decided to skip this menu in the last seconds, and alsochanging/remove the registry key that handles this settings.

    I can seeseveral guides out there how you change this "Number of recent items todisplay on Jump list" for Windows 10 but I simply assume these are madebased on the preview version for Windows 10 and not the sharp.

    It’s sobad for me, who normally work with +20 excel sheets as pinned. So bad that Iwill go back to Windows 8.1 because of that.

    Sorry that I couldnt help to solve the problem.

    With Win10 they have also linked the jump lists for the Explorer icon in the taskbar with the Quick Access display in Explorer. I disabled the showing of recent files and folders in Quick Access in Explorer, and I lost them from the task bar Explorer icon jump list as well.

    It's pretty unfortunate when they take away good options in newer versions of Windows. I hope they bring this back in near future updates.

    It would literally take a Microsoft programmer less than 30 minutes to reimplement the code and package an update. That's the most frustrating part.
