Description jbstory 2018-06-04 15:54:04 UTC
Every single time I update LibreOffice, all my jump list items disappear and have to be individually opened and re-pinned.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Have recent and pinned files in a Windows 7, 8 or 10 start menu jump list.
2. Install an updated version of LibreOffice.
3. Check icon in start menu to see that all recent and pinned files are missing.

Actual Results:  
All my jump list items are gone and have to be individually opened and re-pinned.

Expected Results:
Maintained the existing jump lists just like every other Windows program.

Reproducible: Always

User Profile Reset: No

Additional Info:
I'm not sure if this is an actual bug or the lack of a feature, but it's annoying, especially given the frequency of LibreOffice updates. It's been happening ever since I started using LibreOffice, back in the 5s somewhere with Windows 7, on at least 3 different computers. Happens on both Calc and Writer; those are the only components I use.
