    Jump Lists is a feature that lists app specific tasks or items you can quickly open or get to for every day usage. Jump lists can include recently opened items, frequently opened items, tasks, or websites, in addition to any items that you've pinned.

    Hi, Shawn. Been learning a few things. A solution to my "Pin file to" in File Explorer context menu problem. Not sure to call these jump lists or context menus. You may want to add this to your tutorial here, for it deals with the Office apps Start tiles' jump lists/context menus. Right click on an Office app tile and pin a recently opened file to the jump list/context menu.

    Here's the Word tile list/menu. This works in Publisher, PowerPoint, Excel, and Access.

    Anther handy quick list in Office Outlook.

    Even the Paint tile has a Recent list to pin a file to a jump list. I'd imagine any "creative" app will have the same.

    If you don't want to add here, I can make a tute on the subject, that's if there is not one already.

    @Brink:
    Another couple of tricks I've found:

    If you create a 'Super Hidden' folder and pin it to Quick Access, then re-hide 'Protected System Files and Folders', it will no longer show in the Navigation Pane but, it will still show in File Explorer Taskbar Jump Lists, and be navigable.

    Also, there are certain folders you can pin to Quick Access, such as 'search-ms:', when there, but they too will not show in the Navigation Pane but will also show in Taskbar Jump Lists!

    Thought this info may be useful!
