Hello,
I´ve been looking around a bit but not found anything on this so I´m creating a post.

The company I work at just forced 11 on to my laptop. Most things seem to work fine but I am missing a short cut that was available in 10 and I havent found a way to use 11 in the same way.
In 10 each app has its own recently used list when you right click it in the start menu. You can also pin items of your choice in each apps right click list. Example: I have placed a short cut to Excel on the start menu. When I right click that icon a recently used list appears below the "standard" options. In that list I can pin the files that I want to access frequently to always appear in the list.
Does anyone know if this feature has been remove and if not how to activate it.

/Regards

I´m rephrasing my question as I´m, the second I posted, realized that the menu I was asking for is available on the app icon on the taskbar so half of the question is awnsered.

BUT

I still can´t find that functionality in the start menu as in 10, which means that in order to reach the pinned items, the app needs to be running or pinned to the taskbar.
