Shortcuts, Pinning and Jump Lists - how do they work?

Q: Shortcuts, Pinning and Jump Lists - how do they work?

I have Win and I have created a vbscript file to launch Windows Media Centre - the script tweaks the registry settings for WMC window size and position so it always opens in the same position and size on my second montor before shelling to WMC which also includes command line swtches to open in they Pinning and how work? Jump do Shortcuts, Lists - the TV Guide The trouble is that I have created a shortcut to the vbscript file and put it into the start menu Shortcuts, Pinning and Jump Lists - how do they work? - but when I Shortcuts, Pinning and Jump Lists - how do they work? right click on it it doesn't give me the option to pin it to the task bar If however I edit target for the original WMC shortcut to point to the vbscript then I can pin it Interestingly when I do it this way the Jump List on the pinned shortcut on the taskbar still retains the WMC Jump List which is great although the Jump List doesn't appear to work on the Start Menu shortcut So the question is - is there any detailed information that someone can point me at to help me understand how the shortcuts pinning and jump lists work Specific questions are - How does Win tell the difference between the short cut I created for the vbscript file and the quot standard quot shortcut for WMC - Why does the pin-to option not appear on the vbscript shortcut - Can I programmatically or manually add shortcuts to the quot pinned quot area on the task bar - What controls the Jump List and can it be customised

Preferred Solution: Shortcuts, Pinning and Jump Lists - how do they work?

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/directdownload.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

I have some sensitive material on my computer which I would not like others to see. So, I'd like to know how to exclude some folders and files from lists like recent items, jump lists, etc. Is it possible?

A:How to exclude files and folders from "Recent" lists and jump lists

Welcome to Seven Forums Stawan. It's possible to turn off the recent items in the jumplists of specific programs. But it's a laborious process. I will describe it, but you'll have to do the legwork.

The Jump lists for each program are stored in

C:\Users\(User name)\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows\Recent\AutomaticDestinations

as automaticDestination-ms files with random names.


To figure out which file belongs to which program , you'll have to do some detective work.

For instance, you could open a video with your media player program.

Change the AutomaticDestinations folder into Detail view and Sort by Date Modified.

Only one or two of the files should be showing as modified in the past minute. One may be a list of recently viewed folders, the other should be your program.

Delete one of the files then try to open your program's jump list. If it is gone, you have the right file.

Once you have identified the right file, restore it from recycle bin and set the file properties to Read-only. This will disable the jump list for that file. You'll need to do this for all the programs you want to exclude from jump lists.

As you can see, this would be a long and lengthy process, you'd be better off creating a password protected user. Good luck. A Guy

Hi, so I am familiar with the intrecacies of the Windows Explorer Jump List, I think.

I know that you need to pin folders from 'Recent'.

Problem is, nothing shows up in 'Recent' for me unless I have actually manipulated a file within that folder.

And so, trying to pin 'Computer' on the Jump List seems impossible, as it never shows in 'Recent' because (as far as I can tell) there are no files within 'Computer'.

On my last install, somehow I got it working, but I just formatted and can't get it back.

What could it possibly be?
Thank you much.

What I mean is that they are a few pixels narrower than they should be. As a result any icons that normally appear on the sides are now gone. In some cases half the icon will be visible. This is happening on every jump list for every program I've tried. Someone please tell me there's a fix because it's really really annoying.

A:[SOLVED] Jump Lists?

OK So I solved it;

Basically in the Start Menu Options, there's a checkbox for "store recently open files..." or similar. Now I assumed this was the same as in the past 2 editions of Windows and unchecked it thinking I'd be getting rid of the "Recent Items" on the right pane of the start menu. As it turns out, that's simply the option for recent items everywhere, and the "Recent Items" start menu item is in the Customize Start Menu list, and can be disabled seperately!

Sorted! :D

Hi wyldstallyns258, Welcome to SF,

Unfortunately Chrome won't support Aero Peek Preview in Chrome. It would just show one Tab even you have multiple tabs are open. According to Google Chrome they might have a release soon. If you have Chrome 4.0.266 it would show the preview for one Tab.

And basically I don't want to have a recent jump list pointing to a file that isn't available

Hi JordanJP,

Maybe I'm not understanding correctly, but why would you click on an item in your MPC jumplist that you know isn't available because the drive is disconnected?

You can always just right-click on individual items in a jumplist and select "Remove from this list".

My reason is, I've used the jumplist feature in Windows 7 for Steam to give quicker access to some of the options you can only access by right-clicking the tray icon (i.e., set friends status to online/away/offline, open settings, server browser, screenshots, etc.) using these settings:


In Windows 7 all of these options were displayed in the jump list with the last launched game at the top, in Windows 8/8.1 it seemed that they lowered the number of jumplist items by 1, as I no longer had the most recent game at the top, in Windows 10 Tech Preview, it was the same as Windows 8 until a recent build which redecorated all of the jumplists.

Now I'm left with these options:
Thanks!

A:Increase Number of Items in Jump Lists

Yeah, its a shame, they seem to have removed the feature for customizing the number of items in the jump list. In 7 and 8 you could do it from the taskbar settings or directly in the registry. The same registry mod didn't work for me in 10:

Manually in Registry Editor
1. Open the Start Menu, then type regedit in the search line and press enter.

2. In regedit, navigate to: (See screenshot below)HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Advanced3. In the right pane of Advanced, right click on Start_JumpListItems and click on Modify. (See screenshot above)

4. Select (dot) Decimal. (See screenshot below)5. Enter how many (0 to 60) recent items you want displayed in Jump Lists, then click on OK. (See screensho above)
NOTE: The default number to display is 10.

6. Close Regedit.

I'm at my wits end. Since I've upgraded to 8.1 this keeps happening regularly (the rate it happens seems to be increasing, actually). Everything is fine, my Jump Lists and Pinned Items are as I set them. But once in a while (now within a week or two) the Windows Explorer Jump List disappears. There is nothing, other than the folder I visit most frequently. Everything else, gone. They don't even appear in the Files -- 'Frequent Places' list. There is no trace that any folder was ever pinned or even visited (other than that one)
I've turned off the Auto-Maintanance, it helped only for a bit (now it doesn't help at all). I've checked whether or not my cleaners were doing that (I turned off cleaning Jump Lists and they don't run automatically). I've tried changing the settings (Disabling and Enabling it). I have no idea what else to do.

A:Jump Lists not working on Start Menu

Hello Dave, and welcome to Seven Forums.

It looks like your recent items has been disabled. You could use an option in the tutorial below to enable and turn back on recent items. Afterwards, your Jump Lists should start repopulating with recent/frequent items again as you open and close them.

Hope this helps for now,

A:Cannot enable jump lists in start menu

Hi Sydney,
 
Sorry to hear about your frustration there, but I think I can help a little here.
For the Jump List to be enabled:
 
On Windows 7 desktop, move your mouse cursor to Windows Start Menu, then right-click mouse and choose Properties.
From there, under the Start Menu tab, in Privacy section, make sure both small square boxes are checked for store and display recent opened programs and files, then click OK to complete task.
To test it out, you can simply try to open a file or program then close it, then go to start menu again, and you should see your recent item that you just used for you to select it again with an arrow icon right next to its program, if applicable.
Note that this ONLY enable future tasks when you open files/programs, it will store these info to your start menu for you to choose later at your convenience. But if for some reason you can't have that working still, then I'm suspecting your computer might have been infected with viruses and/or got Windows file system corrupted for some reason.
Hope this helps. Good day !

I use jump lists all the time, as I cannot remember file names or locations.
I use Office Pro 2007 with Windows 7 on a laptop.
A week or so ago my jump lists in MS Word, Excel and Powerpoint stopped working. The lists were there, but contained old files, no new ones.
I deleted %AppData%\Microsoft\Windows\Recent\AutomaticDestinations and \CustomDestinations but the lists remained.
I then went to the programmes, Options, Advanced, set the lists to 0. They disappeared. I reset to 20. The won't reappear when I open and close files, so now I have no lists at all.
I have tried to find registry folders suggested by other threads, but they are not there.
I have rebooted, and even repaired Office using the original discs, all to no avail.
I guess there's a corrupt file somewhere...?

Hi all!

I've just recently began to use the jump lists more and more. In general they work fine but I use VectorWorks and I imported a .pdf into the application. Now the jump list only displays that imported .pdf but not the .vwx files native to that application. I'm pretty sure the jump list worked correctly before the import, but since I've come to rely on them just recently, I can't be a 100% on this.

How could I fix this and make the jump lists display the correct types of files? Just opening a native files with VW doesn't work as they do not become "recent files". I'm at loss here.

Thanks for reading this.

Edit to clarify the "Recent Documents vs. Jump List"
I mean recent documents - the "jump list" in the taskbar for word 07 has the task of showing you your recent documents as well as pinned documents - but neither work now

There is a known bug where when you get more than X items in start menu it goes blank. there is a thread here with the cure. It looks something like this. If you search that thread also has the fix. I believe the fix involves moving the start items to somewhere else and then back. heck the thread to be sure

If I try to use the Ctrl-Click action on web pages that allow you to select multiple items in a list box, a new ie session opens (to my home page) instead of allowing me to make multiple selections. This happens with ALL web pages that have multiple select boxes. It only happens on my desktop (XP with i.e 7), and not on other computers in my house with ie7.

Any ideas please? (It's maddening!!)

A:Control-Click doesn't work with multiple select lists-it opens a new ie page instead

One thing you may want to check is the control panel/accessibility options and make sure nothing is checked in there. Sometimes the accessibility settings for the keyboard will play havoc with what you think should be happening with keys.

Recently, and without my knowing/consent, my brother decided it would be a good idea to clear my hard drive of some excess programs, etc. that I wasn't using. Since then, whenever I try to load Mozilla Firefox, from both my desktop shortcut and my Windows Start menu shortcut, nothing happens. I have found that if I CTRL + ALT + DEL, end the firefox.exe process, and begin a new firefox.exe process, it works relatively fine.

I think part of the reason Firefox is not working is because he told me that he went to the Delete Programs function from the Control Panel, and deleted my local network connections. I've tried to establish a new one, but it doesn't seem the same as before.

Any help in the Mozilla or Network Connection area is greatly appreciated.

I am fond of windows shortcuts and I ve put together a number of them CTRL-ALT- to streamline my work What happens sometimes is that they stop working - why is that I have folders shortcut ed for example intermittently why? shortcuts work - and if I close all folders then any shortcut will work once If a folder that has a shortcut is open then no other shortcuts work intermittently - why? folder shortcut will work until that folder is closed Some shortcuts work always - never a problem Others work sometimes not other times I have my shortcuts folder in my start programs folder I read once where they had to be in one of two places and one of those was the programs folder I did find that if Reflection Unix terminal screen app was running and a portion of the screen was highlighted with the mouse as if you were going to copy it to clipboard that it would stop some shortcuts from running It s a mystery to me and I ve wondered about it for so long I thought I would finally ask the forum if they had any clues Needsleep nbsp

A:shortcuts work intermittently - why?

Partially solving my own thread here - I have a control-alt-U shortcut and it has never worked. It always brings up a window that is already in use. It's supposed to bring up a certain Information Explorer folder. I changed it to control-alt-1, and now it works like it was intended. Looks the same from a properties standpoint. I'm baffled. Never use control-alt-U ??

Hi and thanks for all of the help in advance.

I was attempting to open a file and was required to choose what program opened that particular file. I accidentally picked Adobe reader as the default program and now all my shortcut icons look like Adobe icons and whenever I try to open a shortcut it opens Adobe instead of the normal program.

Ok, so I had recently uninstalled Mozilla Firefox. After I did, when ever I save a shortcut of a webpage to the desktop, it wont open without asking me either to browse the internet to find a program to open it, or choose one from a list. So, I choose IE to open it, check the appropriate box to always use that program, and it still doesn't work. Even the shortcut looks white and not like it used to. Any ideas?

Uhh, i've checked with the hijackteam about this problem and the guy there redirected me here. he suspects that its not a malware related problem.

When i double click on a shortcut on my desktop (e.g. itunes) nothing comes up. however, when i right click then click run, the program runs normally. this problem also occurs in the start menu. i have to right click and press open instead of double clicking the icon directly. can anybody advise???

also, when i add the quick launch bar to my windows bar, it will disappear everytime i reboot. i find this quite irritating.

can anybody help with this problem? i suspect its because i accidentally deleted some scripts while deleting flyakiteosx from my computer. thankyou! any help would be greatly appreciated :D

I've done something that seems to have 'turned off the desktop' - because when I try to call up a prog from a desktop shortcut I get this message;

The file does not have a programme associated with it for performing this action. Create an association in the Folder Options Control Panel.

Can someone tell me how to get things working properly.

IE doesn't work properly ever since I tried Firefox. When I took Firefox off - two or three addons seem to have stayed on the PC (but I cant find them).

Second problem is that my web editor won't call up IE to view changes.

Hope someone can help.

A:Help Me Please?(XP) shortcuts and .exe files do not work.

Hi, and welcome to TSF's HijackThis Log Help forum.

Before proceeding, please print this page or copy it to Notepad to help you carry out the instructions. If you have questions about any instruction, please ask before performing it.

If you can't download one of the below programs by simply clicking its link, please try right-clicking that link instead. Then click Save Link As. or Save Target As.. and save the file to your computer.

Now, the fix..

Go to My Computer > Tools > Folder Options > View tab and make sure that Show hidden files and folders is enabled. Also make sure that the System Files and Folders are showing / visible. Uncheck the Hide protected operating system files option.

To get rid of any lingering installation files, you should empty your Temp folders. (You should do this periodically anyway, as even benign software tends to leave a lot of junk there.) Download and install CleanUp! (alternate link), then run it and click the CleanUp! button. When it asks whether you want to log off, click Yes.

Reboot your system into Safe Mode by repeatedly tapping the F8 key until the menu appears, then selecting Safe Mode.

Click Start > (Settings >) Control Panel > Add/Remove Programs. If the following program exists -- and it might not -- uninstall it:

begin2search

Open Hijack This and click Scan. If they still exist -- and some might not -- check all of the following entries (make sure you do not miss any):

R1 - HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer,SearchURL = http://www.begin2search.com/googlesidesearch.html
R0 - HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main,Start Page =

Please close all other windows, including browsers, then click Fix checked.

If they still exist, delete the following files indicated in [b]RED.

C:\WINDOWS\System32\msvm.exe
You'll have to do a search for these two:
syslog32.exe
w32uptime.exe

Run CleanUp! and click the CleanUp! button. When it asks whether you want to log off, click Yes.

Reboot your system into normal mode.

Run an online scan at Trend Micro or RAV Antivirus. Please select the ?autoclean? option when using Trend Micro. If you don't have high-speed Internet access, plan on this taking a while. If the virus scan finds files it can't clean, please note their names/locations.

So in your next post, we need to see a fresh HijackThis log and a list of any files the online scan couldn't clean. How is the computer working now?

Please note: after you save your HijackThis log to a Notepad file, please turn Word Wrap off before you paste it in here. That should get rid of all those extra blank lines that make your log hard to read.

I was installing Explorer 7 and it did not finish, but presented a note saying that the process was incomplete. What I read in Microsoft page is that possibly it was because my antivirus blocked the writing of some keys in the registry. The icons representing executables and shorcuts became blank, and I cannot execute any program. I downloaded several tools like registry cleaners but they are not recognized as executables. Also downloaded a ZIP file that, when unzipped, tried to edit the registry with some lines that were supposed to allow the recognitions of several extensions, but it did not work either. So I do not know what to do. Strangely enough, the old explorer works and that is how I am communicating with you.

Thank you for any help you can give me.

Just installed Windows 10 - totally successful BUT: no shortcuts/links work in start menu, desktop or taskbar except for links to modern UI apps. Even weirder - shortcuts work if palced in saem directory as the target file/exe but not if then moved elsewhere, like desktop. And even weirder - right clicking a short cut and selecting open or run as administrator don't work, but selecting 'run with graphics card' does work...

I've tried every conceivable setting and nothing works. going crazy. This is installed on a Dell laptop.

Please help....

Help please - I have lots of shortcuts to files for example a shortcut to quot C Documents and Settings User Desktop Stuff map jpg quot and the shortcuts work fine but if I log onto another user say User an administrator who has permissions on all of User s files and try to use the shortcut it can t find the target and if I right click and go to properties it says Target quot C Documents and Settings User Desktop Stuff map jpg quot which is just completely wrong it should say work >:- one user! only on ( Shortcuts User in the path not User The quot Stuff quot folder doesn t even exist in User Shortcuts only work on one user! >:- ( s desktop If I log back on User the shortcut works fine as normal It s as if it s only storing the shortcut as quot Homepath Desktop Stuff map jpg quot or something like that it doesn t say that just a theory on why it s breaking in this way when it should to me be storing an absolute path quot Start folder quot is blank under the shortcut properties This is just an example it s not just one shortcut it s all of them tens of thousands so I am definitely not going to recreate them I want them to work on all users not just on User because all Users have access to User s desktop and so these shortcuts need to function Please help it seems like such a simple problem I just don t know how to resolve it or why it s occurring nbsp

Some one please help me, I had a trojan in my windows 2000 machine and I was able to get rid of it but now all of my program shortcuts are not working or disabled. in order for me to run my programs I have to either go strait to the .exe of that program or choose the .exe from the "run" option in my start menu. Can someone please tell me how to fix these shortcuts back or am I screwed. Damn trojan.
thanks

I created a keyboard shortcut for my calculator, Control+Alt+C. It only works if the shortcut is also on the desktop. As soon as I delete the desktop shortcut, the keyboard shortcut stops working. I've tried creating other shortcuts and have the same problem. Thanks for any help.

A:Keyboard shortcuts don't work

You have answered your own question:
No shortcut file - no shortcut combination assigned to that file.

Alternatively, you can use AutoHotkey to create custom key shortcuts and even key remapping.
