Hah, you're still doing THAT!?
Yes, this method was popular a few years ago, but it has since been perfected and mostly automated.
The new hype is to pick a framework, any framework, load that into your project, and get all the other components for free!
I'll explain it to you so you can keep up with the times.
Create a new folder, open up a command prompt, and install gulp using npm (npm install gulp).
Here's the resulting node_modules folder:
Size: 5.98 MB
Size on disk: 8.85 MB
Contains: 2823 files, 706 folders
The total amount of packages installed is 267
And you were thinking of downloading 267 packages manually? Amateur!

So I made this nifty little MRU list and made it so MRU files are shown on the taskbar menu when you right click on the app's taskbar entry. This is not as easy as one would think.
At any rate, there's supposed to be an win32 method you can call called "SHAddToRecentDocs" that's supposed to let explorer/winshell know when you've opened a file or saved a file in your app and it should go in the MRU.
Despite my calling this, my taskbar MRU list managed by windows is not the same as the MRU list in my app (which is more complete)
this confounds me.
The Microsoft function does not work as advertised. Who coulda known?
When I was growin' up, I was the smartest kid I knew. Maybe that was just because I didn't know that many kids. All I know is now I feel the opposite.
