JumpLists in Windows are a very handy feature to quickly open documents, because they contain manually user pinned files as well as auto populated other recently opened files.
But with every update installation of LO the JumpLists are deleted and the users have to rebuild them manually, which is annoying, because this time consuming process has to be repeated with every update installation of LO.
JumpLists for all programs (not only LibreOffice) are stored in this path: "C:\Users\USERNAME\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows\Recent\AutomaticDestinations". For example the JumpList configuration file for LO Writer is "d38a3ea7ec79fbed.automaticDestinations-ms", the file for LO Calc is "83dd64e7fa560bd5.automaticDestinations-ms".
With every update installation of LO those files are deleted and the JumpList is lost.
This is NOT A BUG OF WINDOWS, because when I update other programs, the JumpLists of those prorgams stay the way they are. Instead, this annoying situation is caused by the non-optimal way LO does the update process: complete de-installation and then re-installaion of LO. Because when a program gets de-installed, windows also deletes all the associated config files (which is a good thing, because this ensured the hard drive to stay uncluttered).
In order to not delete all the associated configuration files for the JumpLists, the LO update process must be optimised for the Windows operating system.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Download the LO installer
2. Install/Update LO
3. Have your JumpList entries deleted
User Profile Reset: No
