Toshiba Satellite C655, Windows 7 Professional, MS Office 2010
Just upgraded (not voluntarily) to Windows 7 Professional from Windows 7 Home Basic and previously, I could click on the arrow on the right of the Word icon pinned to the start menu and see the last 10 or so Word docs that were opened.
Have researched and tried everything it was possible to try, and am still unable to enable a jump list for Word, or for the Documents or Recent Items on the right side of the Start menu. You would think the jump list for the latter two would be enabled as a default, but give another idiotcy star to the folks at M'soft.
The Word jump list is critical for me, I use it numerous times a day. Now I have to go and find where the document is stored (and remember where it was stored!) to open it.
Just so you know, there is no arrow next to the Word program on the Start menu. Most of the instructions say to use that, but if you don't have it, you can't use it.
I would be beyond appreciative and grateful for your help. Thank you. Sydney
