Use Jump Lists to quickly locate your regularly-used files

This tip is brilliant for quick access to files you are working on regularly.

  1. Right-click a program icon in the Taskbar or Start Menu.
    – A list of recently opened files displays.
  2. Click the file you wish to open.
  3. Click the grey pin icon next to a recently opened file to “pin” the file into the list regardless of how many other files are opened.


  • NOTE: Pinning Folders in the Windows Explorer jump list is a useful way to create shortcuts to Search topics and Folders you access often.

I demonstrate using Jump Lists in this brief Video Tip.
