Windows 10 Build 10041: «jump Lists» return to menu «start»
Do you remember the «jump Lists» (Jump List)? They debuted in Windows 7, and then was moved to the Windows 8 and Windows 8.1, where they are only available on the taskbar. For those who don’t know, «jump Lists» provides quick access to frequently used files and folders, and some features of programs by clicking the right mouse button on the shortcuts in the taskbar.
In Windows 7 «jump Lists» are integrated into the various areas of the operating system. Even in the «start» menu by clicking on the arrow next to the program name, the system displays the list of recently opened files, or used parameters. In Windows 8.x function is active only for desktop programs pinned to the taskbar.
Many of them lack this useful ability, but colleagues from WinBeta found that in Windows 10 Build 10041, there is a new, yet primitive version of «jump Lists». It is enabled through the registry.
As before, the feature is compatible with all applications that support «jump Lists», so that developers do not have to rewrite code to implement the function. In addition, new «jump Lists» also work with modern applications such as Music and Videos. Feature is not enabled by default because this is not the final version, which now works very unstable.
To activate the «jump Lists» in Windows 10 Build 10041, open the registry editor, navigate to HKEY_CURRENT_USERSoftwareMicrosoftwindowscurrentversionexploreradvanced, create a new DWORD (32-bit), name it «EnableXamlJumpView», set its value to 1 and the hexadecimal number system. Then restart the computer.
