A jump list indicates those documents you have recently opened. When you right-click on a pinned item on the taskbar, it will appear. This means that when selected, Windows will remember which documents have been opened, so they can be viewed. In the screenshot below, I've shown an example of a skip list in Windows 10.


Frequently used items always find a place in the Windows 10 Jump Lists. In fact, they are useful as they provide quick access to frequently accessed items. But jump lists often end up being cluttered with objects. These items include junk items and useful items. This is why it is very important to clean your jump lists from time to time to give your system a neat look. But Windows 10 doesn't provide a default approach to clearing all your jump lists at once. Of course, you can delete the items one by one. But who has enough time to review each article? This article aims to provide a means of clearing the entire Windows 10 jump list with very few steps.
