Windows 10 is always improving its capability over time, making it to the best operating system made by Microsoft. Talking about performances, Windows 10 is way lighter than predecessor Windows 7 while maintaining advanced features. Jump Lists is one of default feature on Windows that already implemented on at least three recent OS. Jump Lists is a history, recent activities, frequent actions, pinned files, or tasks that shows when you right-click on the app icon on the Taskbar. But, does it necessary to disable Jump Lists?

Head to Start Menu, then click Settings which symbolized by a gears icon or you can type “Settings” on the search bar instead and open the program.
Now, select Personalization.
On the left sidebar, select Start. Then, turn off the Jump Lists option as seen below.
Please keep in mind, this setting will not be applied on pinned items. Other items such as history, recent tasks, and activity will disappear and left the pinned items alone. Removing pinned items can be done manually by clicking Unpin button on the item.
