UWP-JumplistSee Jump list customization sample: https://github.com/Microsoft/Windows-universal-samples/tree/master/Samples/JumpList

The sample shows the following techniques:

  • Disable the jump list.
  • Create a jump list based on Recent or Frequent items.
  • Adding tasks to the jump list.
  • Creating groups of items in a jump list.
  • Perform an action when a jump list item is activated by the user.
