After using W7 for several months and loving it overall, I finally decided I really didn't like the Libraries feature and disabled it using the program provided here https://www.howtogeek.com/howto/21462/how-to-enable-or-disable-the-libraries-feature-in-windows-7/ .
(I liked the "old fashioned" way of viewing files and folders and I found the Libraries feature really confused me as to what files were located where because I have a very logical-for-me structure of folders and subfolders.)
Anyway... When I rebooted after the registry hack, all of my "pinned" documents were no longer pinned to the taskbar. But it was easily fixed, for most of the programs I use (Adobe), I simply opened the file within the program and was able to repin the documents I wanted.
HOWEVER, Windows programs are uncooperative. I used the same procedure (open the program, open the document/file), but when I close the file it does not appear on the Recently Used part of the Jump List. Programs affected are the latest editions of Notepad, Excel, Word. Oddly, 2003 Publisher worked fine.
SO, long story short, how do you pin documents/files to the jump list if they don't show up in the Recently Used list?
Many THANKS for any elucidation!!!!
