Description Lew 2012-08-26 21:05:28 UTC
Problem description: W7 task bar icons for Writer and Calc do not show their own recent or pinned files.

Steps to reproduce:
1. pin LO Writer and Calc to the taskbar.
2. open some .odt and .ods files from W7 explorer/directories
3. right click on the taskbar icons

Current behavior:

Right-clicking the task bar icons only shows the program name and "unpin from taskbar".

I've relied on OO Writer and Calc to show their own recent files from their own jumplists by right clicking their task bar icons. I also like having the files pinned permanently in that location.  OO/AOO do this, so I suspect that it has to do with settings or installation of LO.

Expected behavior:

I'd like to see files that I've pinned appear first, and then a number of recently files.  I'd like the Writer .odt and other files that Writer opens by default (.txt, .doc) appear.  I'd like the Calc .ods and other files that Calc opens by default (.xls, .cvs) appear.

A Windows issue, therefore adapted “Platform” field.”

same behaviour on 4003.

Version is the oldest version that we see the issue, not the latest we've tested. We just use comments to say we've tested on a newer release and it's still a problem. 

Changing version back.

Enhancement - per QA guidlines, marking as Resolved - Fixed. 

This behavior on Windows 7 is correct for LibreOffice's cross platform core.

Enhancing with Windows specific code to instrument use of Microsoft Taskbar Jump Lists, including problematic calls needed to record into the Windows registry, is clearly an Enhancement that a DEV would have to take on.  It possibly could be integrated into the Windows Explorer Shell integration modules to facilitate inclusion/omission on install.
