Type: System.Windows.Shell.JumpPath

The JumpPath to add to the Jump List.

The contents of the Recent category are managed by the Windows shell. To display recently used items in the Jump List, set the ShowRecentCategory property to true.

You can call the AddToRecentCategory(JumpPath) method to request that the Windows shell add the specified jump path to the Recent items list. If your application is not registered to handle the file type of the item, it will not appear in the Recent list and calls to AddToRecentCategory(JumpPath) will fail silently.
