If you are new to Windows 7, Jump Lists are lists of recent items, such as files, folders, or websites, organized by the program that you use to open them. In addition to being able to open recent items using a Jump List, you can also pin your favorite program to Jump Lists, so that you can quickly get to the items that you use every day.
By default, you can view only 10 recent items in Jump Lists. Once you get used to Jump Lists you always try to launch files and folders from Jump Lists only. So, to make the most out of Jump Lists, you need to increase the number of recent items in Jump Lists. To increase/decrease the number of items to display in Jump Lists, follow the steps given below:
1. Right-click on Windows 7 Taskbar and select Properties to open Taskbar and Start Menu Properties.
2. Switch to Start Menu tab, & click on the Customize button.
3. In the Customize Start Menu dialog box, change the number next to Number of recent items to display in Jump Lists to 12 or 15.
4 Click Ok and exit the Taskbar and Start Menu Properties.
5. That’s all.
