How to Rearrange Pinned Items On Jump Lists in Windows 10

information   Information
When you right click or press and hold on an app on the taskbar or Start menu, it will open the app's jump list.

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 pinned items. You'll always see the same items in the jump list for an app, regardless of whether you view the jump list on the Start menu, taskbar, or File Explorer.

On the taskbar, jump lists appear for programs that you've pinned to the taskbar and programs that are currently running.

On the Start menu, jump lists appear for programs that support having a jump list.

In Windows 7 and Windows 8, you are able to drag and drop pinned items on jump lists to rearrange them in any order you wanted. Unfortunately in Windows 10, you are no longer able to simply drag and drop pinned items on jump lists to rearrange them.

This tutorial will show you how to rearrange pinned items on jump lists to any order for your account in Windows 10.
