Also, if you use a PC that has more people (family, colleagues, etc.) but you limit yourself to opening files that do not raise suspicions or know how to cover your back, you can ignore the Jumplist without any problems. But when your privacy is threatened, and some files that you have hidden from the eyes of others through some hidden whips of hard drive (Or CDs/external drives), But they frequently open, Jumplist leave footprints in your application (or applications ...) used for opening them ... well, this could be extremely irritating, and so on Jumplist black ball.
