    Jump Lists No Longer Appear

    After the uninstallation of some software yesterday, I no longer have jump lists in my taskbar icons. I right click on them, and there's no response whatsoever. Right click functionality on the taskbar itself and in all other places appears to be normal. I'm hoping there will be a relatively simple registry key I can edit or something. Anyone have some suggestions?

    You could try this free program (easy to find) - options switch jump lists on and off.

    (a nice feature of it is if you mouse over the taskbar, the scroll wheel controls volume)

    There's also this setting (bottom) (just search Settings for jump)

    Do a System Restore to a time before the software uninstall.

    Ye-es.. but
    a. The uninstalled program will be reinstated, so the problem isn't properly resolved.
    b. A number are experiencing system restore issues. If it works- great, if it doesn't, tricky to resolve.

    On the other hand, if you uninstalled several programs, you might then be able to identify which one the jump list problem is related to. But I'm not sure how that would really help....!

    You'd have to switch on "show recently used apps" as shown inn attached picture above. Your jumplists will return (in windows 10)

    Well none of that worked. I wound up having to reset the PC. Thanks, though, to everyone who took time to respond.

    We did try. Thank you for letting us know. Some things break and can't be fixed. It's trial and error.

    But you should now realise how valuable it would be to have a means to fix things like this- a way to have a second chance- without the need of technical assistance.

    Here's how.

    Here's my write-up on the value of disk imaging.
    (There's a tutorial on Macrium in the Tutorials section, and a couple of videos in the user videos section on this forum)
    Backup and Restore with Macrium Reflect - Windows 10 Backup Restore Tutorials

    Creating disk images lets you restore Windows and all your disks and partitions to a previous working state, quickly and probably without technical help.

    You can recover from:
    - a failed disk drive (restore to a new one)
    - ransomware (which encrypts your disk)
    - user error
    - unrecoverable problems from failed updates to problem programs
    - unbootable PC (hardware faults aside)

    Images also act as a full backup- you can extract files too.

    You can even use images to help you move more easily and quickly to a new PC.
    Can be used with Laplink software to transfer your build automatically to another PC

    Imaging can even help you sleep at night knowing you have a second chance.

    Many here recommend Macrium Reflect (free) as a good robust solution and more reliable than some others. It’s
    - more feature rich
    - more flexible
    - more reliable
    than Windows Backup and Restore system images.

    It's well supported with videos, help and a responsive forum.

    There are other such programs, free/commercial, some with simpler interfaces, but Macrium R is one of the most robust and reliable.

    How long does it take?
    SSD+ USB3 - maybe 15 mins for the first system image, less thereafter
    HDD + USB2 - maybe 40-50 mins
    That’s with little personal data, few programs installed.
    - of course, depends how much you have on C:
    (You can and should image all your partitions and disks)

    Once you've created your first image, keep it updated with e.g. differential imaging- which images just changes from the first image, more quickly, and creates a smaller image file.

    You need a backup medium - say- twice as large as the total amount of data you are imaging to keep a reasonable number of differential images. This will vary dependent on the number of images you keep, so is only a rough practical guide.

    Some comment that system restore isn't always reliable; if it works and solves the problem, great. But sometimes restores won't work or fail. And of course a restore point only covers a limited number of aspects of the system. That’s where disk imaging comes in.
