How do I get win7 to offer me recently opened solutions on the jumplist that appears when I click it on the startmenu. I currently have a single source file showing on that list, and no idea why windows thinks that is it special.
You need a registry hack to do this.
Save the below as a .reg file and import it to the registry.
Note that this will only add solutions to the MRU list when they’re opened, not capture the existing recent projects list in visual studio.
