Right click on Notepad in the taskbar

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I have Notepad pinned to my taskbar and when I used to right click on it it would show a list of the 10 or so recent txt files I had opened. It suddenly stopped doing that today, even though I didn't change any settings. I do still have "store and display recently opened items in the start menu and taskbar" selected in my taskbar settings. Does anyone know why this is happening?

Perhaps the "recent" documents haven't been worked on for awhile, so then they wouldn't be classified as "recent"

I worked on a few of them about an hour ago. Prior to today, they would stay in the "recent" list even if they hadn't been opened for days.

My notepad recent docs (and others) are empty as well, most likely culprit - windows update.
