Hey All,

 

I've setup WVD and am using Remote App rather than the full desktop experience.  All is working very well with the exception of one annoying issue:

 

Recent files aka Windows 10 Jump Lists, don't populate when using remote apps.  I have file explorer and individual apps published and when say opening a pdf, or non Office document, they won't show up in the recent files list in other apps (like Outlook for example).

 

I've moved the user to full desktop experience and it works fine, move them back to remote app and the old ones from his full desktop session exist, but no new documents/shortcuts appear in %appdata%/microsoft/windows/recent

 

I feel like this is probably a bug with how the api auto generates shorcuts in the recent folder.

 

MS can you confirm this is a shortfall for WVD Remote Apps?  Any chance there is a fix in the works?

Any chance you/someone else at Microsoft could confirm that jump lists/recent files don't work properly with Remote Apps on WVD?
