Many thanks. I had two files greater than 1Mb and after deletion normal
jump lists returned both on the task bar and on the Pinned start menu.

Your memory is not quite perfect - but close. The final part of that thread
was from you on April 6, 2011, subject:
Found it; was: Missing 'recent item' from start menu shortcut

I have something similar to this which I've only just noticed.
Maybe it's the same thing.
Let me describe my phenomenon.
On my Pinned to Start Menu there's Notepad, Firefox, Media Centre and
Freecell all with a little arrow; and hovering over them gives an
expansion list of things.
But Internet Explorer (64-bit) has no arrow and doesn't produce any list.
Hhhmmm! Same problem?
Let's await someone else's comments.
There was a thread on this a while ago, but I lost the posts...
I remember they're called Jump Lists, googled that and came up with this
(again... this time I'm saving the info) which worked for me.
