    I found a tutorial on You tube and did just what you suggested...worked like a charm. Thanks. I seem to remember you from the Vista forum. Were you there?
    Hello Fred, and welcome to Ten Forums. :)

    Yep, I'm from www.vistax64.com as well. It's good to see you here.

    Hi Brink, I'm looking @ .chm, trying to get hh.exe (the built-in chm viewer) to remember recent (.chm) docs, with jumplist.... just like notepad does with .txt (but not with .reg grrr)

    It looks like this isn't possible, and that (hopefully) a substitute-app is the best workaround....

    anyone got any ideas if notepad (& others?) can be modded to remember all opened files?

    I can
    pin hh.exe to start menu, but it has no recent, unlike notepad, paint, even control panel...

    Reluctant to rem hh.exe from HostApps @ HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\FileAssociation, doubt it'll have the desired magical effect of making .chm's pinnable..

    Hello Jonny,

    I'm not aware of a way to have jump lists available for items you "Pin to Start".

    Click on a Frequent places folder in File Explorer runs takeownership


    As title says instead of opening the folder a click on a Frequent places folder in File Explorer runs takeownership command.
    Weird. I have no clue on how to get it to default behavior ie opening the folder
    Thanks to the tuto I can clear and even prevent the Frequent places to fill in but I'd rather have it working properly.
    Begging for help. Thanks

    Edit
    Only when click done from File Explorer Frequent places in taskbar
    OK when done from File in File Explorer menu then folder opens
    In case it helps to point to the right registry key.

    Cheers

    Hello @Hemimax,

    Have you already updated to the Windows 10 October 2018 Update version 1809?

    If you have, do they show on your "New Tab" page in Microsoft Edge?

    Hi Brink,
    Sorry I misunderstood, thought it would show recent windows/tabs that had opened in Edge on the taskbar like it does for other apps. But it does not show Top Sites on the Edge taskbar icon.

    You're not mistaken. "Top sites" would be the recent/frequent for Edge.

    My jump list for Edge is currently showing "Top sites", so it may take a bit longer for it to show up in your list depending on how much you use Edge.


    See your top sites in the Jump List: You can now see your top sites in the Jump List on the Windows taskbar or Start menu. Just right-click the Microsoft Edge icon to see a list of your most-visited sites and pin the ones that matter most to you. Right-click on any entry to remove it from the list.
