    Jump Lists Not working for Word 2016 or Excel 2016


    so jump lists via my taskbar and windows 10, I'm not having much joy :-(

    I've just got a new desktop (Jan 2016) with windows 10 pre-loaded and I installed office 2010 - jump lists didn't work - so I thought I'll uninstall and install office 2016 64bit - jump lists still don't work arrggggg!

    But they work for IE and notepad and file explorer but not for firefox or photoshop elements.

    I've tried deleting the files from:
    %APPDATA%\Microsoft\Windows\Recent\AutomaticDestinations
    %APPDATA%\Microsoft\Windows\Recent\CustomDestinations
    and rebooting but to no avail

    any ideas anyone????

    I really need jump lists working for Excel & Word.

    Hmm, jumplists work perfect for me with office 2007. You aren't the only one having this issue

    Plus, did you set the number of items for the jumplists when you right click on taskbar, properties, click on the start menu tab and set the number of items you want showing.

    Hi there

    what's your Office 2016 version release

    Mine is :

    Not quite sure what you want to do -- drop downs etc in EXCEL seem OK and the "Recent documents" in EXCEL gives you a decent number of your recently accessed files.

    For example :

    I have the same version.
    If I don't have word pinned to my taskbar then I drop a word doc on the task bar it creates a shortcut to Word on my task bar with a pinned entry for that file - BUT when you click the file is says it doesn't exist then if you right click the file and click open it works just fine - so the problem gets even more strange

    but if you right click text.docx and click open it works...

    and the recent list never appears on the right click menu....

    something somewhere is very confused - that includes me at the moment!

    It's on Windows 10 RTM 10240, but I notice now that they removed the option on 10586.

    Jumplists are working on my PC. Wonder why this issue is occurring for you. Hope a resolution is found

    To get a file into a Word or Excel taskbar jump list:
    Create a shortcut to the workbook or document you want in the jump list, rename it as you wish, then copy (Ctl+drag) it onto the Excel or Word icon on the taskbar. It will then be pinned there; i.e. when you right click the icon, you'll see the file. Click it to open it.
