Edit: Adding Files to the Windows MRU/Recent Document List - Rick Strahl's Web Log[^]


And there it is.

When you right click on an app on your taskbar you get a most recently used file list for the app.

Historically, I thought each app's MRU was proprietary to the app - like how it was stored in the registry was individual to the app.

So how the hell does windows 10 do this?

Basically i want it to happen with my app, and i want to understand it before i go and just dump an MRU in the registry.

maybe my google fu is just off tonight, but after hunting everywhere, including ForensicWiki it seems that i wasn't wrong to assume each app's MRU is proprietary - they appear to be.

The only other possibility that occurred to me was that windows was monitoring all app starts and openfiledialog calls to build its own MRU for each application. However, that doesn't make sense for a number of reasons.

I'm stumped.

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.
