    File Explorer jumplist showing Frequent not Recent

    I've recently reinstalled Windows 8 and the jumplist for File Explorer now only shows Frequent instead of Recent. There's a load of instructions for Windows 7 and 10 but I can't find any help for changing the Windows 8 jumplist to show Recent instead of Frequent?

    The toggle for this should be in the taskbar properties. Right click on the taskbar and go to properties.

    There should be a tab for jumplists and a checkbox for recent items.

    Didn't realize it, but there is also a full tutorial on eightforums here: Recent Items and Frequent Places - Turn On or Off in Windows 8
