The contents of the Recent category are managed by the Windows shell. To display frequently used items in the Jump List, set the ShowRecentCategory property to true.
The Recent and Frequent categories often contain many of the same jump items. As a result, applications typically display either the Recent or the Frequent category in the Jump List, but not both.
You can call the AddToRecentCategory method to request that the Windows shell add items to the Recent items list. If your application is not registered to handle the file name type of the item, it will not appear in the Recent list and calls to AddToRecentCategory will fail silently.
