    I've tried following a few different guides online to add a jumplist to my app but I continually find the following error displays:

    'System.Windows.Forms.Application' does not contain a definition for 'Current'

    heres the lines I'm using at the mo:

    private void Form1_Load(object sender, EventArgs e)
                JumpList jumpList = new JumpList();
                JumpList.SetJumpList(Application.Current, jumpList);
                JumpTask jumpTask = new JumpTask();
                jumpTask.Title = "IE";
                jumpTask.CustomCategory = "Keep Notes";
                jumpTask.ApplicationPath = @"C:\Program Files\Internet Explorer\iexplore.exe";
                String systemFolder = Environment.GetFolderPath(Environment.SpecialFolder.System);
                jumpTask.IconResourcePath = @"C:\Program Files\Internet Explorer\iexplore.exe";
                jumpTask.IconResourceIndex = 0;
                jumpTask.Arguments = "pixel shaders";
    I'm hoping that someone can tell me where I'm going wrong...

    all I want is a standard jumplist which enables me to launch any particular app that I develop the app to launch.

    Thanx in advanced :)


    it turns out that it was affected by my OS not having 'Recent Items' Enabled... anyway yeah, I've got JumpLists working now! :)


    Could anyone tell me how to add a second item to the jumplist?
