  • Hi,

    So it is mostly a by design feature for SolidWorks, I suggest you contact the SolidWorks support to report this issue.

  • Hi,

    Have you enable jumplist in your system?

    Right click Taskbar > Properties > Start Menu tab > Check Store and display recently opened items in the Start menu and the taskbar > Apply > OK.

    What you see in a Jump List depends entirely on the program, for example, the Jump List for IE shows frequently viewed websites and WMP lists commonly played tunes.

  • Hi Yolanda

    Thanks for your reply.

    Yes, I have enabled my jump lists, and they are showing for all other programs on my PC.

    Before anyone suggests that I install "Jump list Launcher" or other special software, I'd like to say, that I do not consider that as an option.

    I can tell from what I read that those apps are far from flawless.

    I would really just prefer to tweak the proprietary Windows apps.

  • Hi,

    Do you mean that the jumplist shows for all other programs except the SolidWorks? Since I have no resource to manually install the product in my machine to have a test, but I'd like to confirm whether this issue happens in other machines? Do other users have a jumplist for SolidWorks?  As mentioned in my previous reply,  Jump List shows different content depending entirely on each program , so maybe it's by desigh for SolidWorks.

    Regards

  • Hi again Yolanda

    Yes, the jump lists are showing for all other programs. Not for SolidWorks.

    I can see that my colleagues who are also working with SolidWorks on Windows 7, do not have SolidWorks jump lists either.
