I am running the final, shipped version of Windows 10 and didn't think to test this on my VM running the Tech Preview - quick jump lists do not open for the Putty icon pinned to the task bar. All the pinned/recent connections show up, and you can pin/unpin said connections, but clicking on any of the connections in the list just opens the main putty config window.

@Pauligrinder

I have the same issue. Until build 10130 the whole menu didn't even apear, and since then it just hasn't worked.

Same here... I hope that they are able to fix. I use PuttyTray all the time.

@Berzerker

Yup, broken for me as well. Latest release build.

Same here.

I've attempted to debug this issue but it's tricky as Windows 10 isn't allowing VS2015 to set a JIT debugger for all of Windows (so DebugBreak isn't working).

It doesn't look like PuTTY is getting any command line from the JumpList items. Can someone on Windows 8 please tell me what cmdline is set to when you click on a JumpList item?

This is a known issue in PuTTY upstream, fixed in the current snapshots.

@voltagex

Interesting. I wonder if that should go to Microsoft as a bug report, too
(to where though?)

@kohenkatz I am running Putty snapshot 2015-8-26.54dcfb0 and jumplists still don't work

@kohenkatz

@blindpet You need to open each connection once from the PuTTY window in order to "re-register" it in the jump list.

@blindpet

@kohenkatz thank you!

Thanks @kohenkatz , that fix works for me too, so I've cherry-picked it back (4bf1fe3); will be in the next release.

Shame about the re-registering thing, but I'm guessing people will get it fixed for themselves pretty quickly.

@kohenkatz Thanks for the advice. Works for me as well

I have beta v0.66 installed at windows 10. The jump list is working again but the list is a lot smaller than I had at my previous windows release. Seems that there is a lower maximum of allowed items....
