Taskbar tasks list is missing

Frequent Contributor

When right click on the program on taskbar, the tasks list is not shown. I reinstalled Microsoft Edge Dev but the browsing data is not clear, the issue still persist. 


Before a certain update that I forgot, it used to be there but after the update I accidentally unpin and repin the tasks is gone. 


EDIT: I checked others post seem some of them had same issue as me.

Thanks @Limyx826 for reporting this. I can confirm I see the same as you.


I'm filing a bug as I type. Thanks again. 






I will, call it a Jumplist, if that's ok.  I am showing my own, also, w/ Dev. Will be different, of course, w/ different items. The difference between yours & mine is clear.  But, please, note, do have to have it Turned On for (more) items to show on the Jumplist. I trust this may help.

Well it is turned on and that's the issue. 


Well that's the problemWell that's the problem



you're right, it has nothing to do with that Windows settings.

however it should be fixed in the future Dev updates since it's already fixed in Canary, meaning that it will eventually come to the Dev and Beta too but with a delay :)

Btw @DarrenMH filled a bug report for it.

This issue still occurs in Dev channel (version


Hi Franklin,

I cannot repro what you mention. Dev Build & the jumplist is there & was in prior Builds, as well.

Hi, try updating your Edge dev. if it's bothering you too much just switch to Canary for now. it doesn't have the problem. i hope this problem is not another side effect of A/B testing..
I think is already the latest Edge dev...



I have even tried to reinstall Edge Dev Insider and the task list remains not shown. I think the tasks are not registered for an unknown reason. I have attached screenshots showing the differences.






Yes that's why I suggested to use Canary version instead while waiting for a fix for Dev. it's more stable and doesn't have that problem. Dev has always had more problems than Canary as far as i remember, and i've been using Edge insider since launch. Dev also has a small problem with extension menus. It feels like the more bugs they fix, the more broken Dev gets.
like they fix a bug in one place but create more bugs in other places. though it's all beta now and normal.

@HotCakeX I think the same issue exists in Canary too.


Version (Official build) canary (64-bit)



@Limyx826 @DarrenMH Are you still experiencing the same issue?



No as you can see I've got all the task lists in the taskbar

For your information,

Well I had no idea what kind of bug is this, some had it some didn'tWell I had no idea what kind of bug is this, some had it some didn't

Try unpin it and repin it

I wonder whether Windows 10 update is a cause now. After reinstalling Firefox, all tasks are lost.





The Firefox issue, I am able to get the tasks in jump list back by going to about:config then setting browser.taskbar.lists.enabled to false then true. I am not aware of a similar flag in Chrome or Edge Insider.

Mind to take a full screen screenshot? this white area doesn't say where it is taken from exactly.



Press Start, then enter "Edge Dev":
