    How to Change Maximum Number of Items in Jump Lists in Windows 10


    Jump Lists are lists of 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. You'll always see the same items in the Jump List for a program, regardless of whether you view the list on the Start menu, taskbar, or File Explorer.

    By default, Windows 10 will display up to a maximum of eleven items in an app's jump list.

    This tutorial will show you how to change the maximum number of items that can display in jump lists for your account or all users in Windows 10.


    EXAMPLE: Maximum Number of Items in Jump Lists

    I tested with a maximum of 30 jump list items, and get a scroll bar to be able to see them all.

    Here's How:

    1 Press the Win + R keys to open Run, type regedit into Run, and click/tap on OK to open Registry Editor.

    2 If prompted by UAC, click/tap on Yes.

    3 Browse to the key you want to use below in Registry Editor. (see screenshot below)

    (Current user only)
    HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Advanced

    OR

    (Apply to All users - must be signed in as administrator)
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Advanced

    4 In the right pane of the Advanced key, double click/tap on the JumpListItems_Maximum DWORD to modify it. (see screenshot above)

    If you don't have the JumpListItems_Maximum DWORD (not there by default), then right click or press and hold on an empty area in the right pane of the Advanced key, click/tap on New and DWORD (32-bit) Value, type JumpListItems_Maximum for the name, and press Enter.


    5 Select (dot) Decimal, and type a number (11 or higher) for the maximum items you want in your jump lists, and click/tap on OK. (see screenshot below)

    6 Close Registry Editor.

    7 Restart explorer, or sign out and sign in to apply.


    That's it,
    Shawn

    Hi Shawn - this worked well for me on my previous computer, but not on my new (Surface Book) with Office 365/2016. I have tried entering 30 as both hexadecimal and decimal - neither works. Any ideas? A short jumplist is a major problem IMO. Can't imagine why MS hasn't sorted it long ago! Jon

    Hello Jon, :)

    It may soometimes take a bit for each jump list to populate to show 30 items. You might see if restarting the computer may work better to apply it.

    What build of Windows 10 do you have installed?

    There are more items in the jumplist, since if you remove one or two from the list, others move up. I have rebooted a couple of times since changing from hexadecimal to decimal and no impact. All lists still limited to 11 items.

    If you're talking to your mates in Microsoft, please tell them that it would also be MUCH better if we could move the items in the jumplist (which used to be possible) and to make jumplist size a right click option. You might also let them know that I find it remarkable that they are able to make critical aspects of their programs worse in new versions (like eg, icon spacing on the QAT, and inability to edit macro icons)!

    Will do, but I would recommend for you to also send feedback on that as well.

    For now, I'll monitor to see how the method in this tutorial works in the latest Insider build 14379.

    This worked great for me - thank you!

    I had previously rolled back from Win10 given this annoyance and a couple other minor items, but it is working great now!!

    Hello lukasz, and welcome to Ten Forums. :)

    I'm afraid that I'm not sure for RDP sessions.
