    Win 10 Jump Lists

    I use jump lists extensively. They save me a lot of keystrokes! Earlier, I created File Explorer jump lists for folders I frequently accessed. Some months later I had corrupted Win 10 and to solve the problem was only able to carry out a Reset to re-install Win 10 with the option to retain my personal files. Other than having to re-install my programs, the Reset was very quick and solved my problem(s). Now I cannot create a jump list of my favorite folders in File Explorer (jump lists for other taskbar items were easily re-created.) I assume that the updated Win 10 no longer supports File Explorer jump lists other than those "baked in". Has anyone else experienced this with a fully updated Win 10? Perhaps I've missed something in trying to create File Explorer jump lists.

    How are you trying to do this? All I do is open file explorer, navigate so I can select the folder I want to pin, select a folder and drag it to the task bar.

    Don,

    FWIW, I created my own shortcut to File Explorer that would open directly into Documents. This shortcut does NOT accumulate a Jump List.

    That said, I tried Joe's method and drug down a folder from my Quick Access list to the Task Bar and that shortcut has a list of all the items in my Quick Access list in it's Jump List.

    Further testing shows that the Jump List is not accumulating recent locations only those in the Quick Access List.

    Your testing agrees with my experience on the File Explorer jump list. TA DA!! Add the desired folder to Quick Access! Just navigate to the folder of interest, don't open it but right click it and choose 'Pin to Quick Access'. No more sleepless nights!
