Jump lists not working in Start Menu?

A small annoyance that I've noticed.

When pinning apps such as Word or Notepad to the Start Menu, they don't seem to have any jump lists in their right-click menu even though I have enabled this option in Settings. They do show jump lists in the "All apps" section of the Start menu or when they appear on the task bar.

Is anyone else having this issue?

Everyone is. That is normal behaviour, the icons on Win11's Start do not have jump lists. Start has been redesigned from scratch for Win11 and that feature was not included. The All apps list and the Taskbar the only places you'll see a jump list.

Thanks for verifying. I don't understand this "design" though. If it's able to show jump lists in the all apps section of the Start Menu, why not in other sections? It always has been a handy feature.

Guess we'll never know
