Jump list with recent apps and categories is added to the Microsoft Store.

This week, Microsoft released a massive new Dev version with a variety of modifications and enhancements, including website recommendations on the Start menu, multiple Task Manager tweaks, new Suggested Actions, and many more. The most recent build, as is typically the case in the Dev Channel, includes additional app changes, and the Microsoft Store is the next platform to get new capabilities.

A new jump list-supporting Microsoft Store version (22210.1401.X) is available for download by Windows Insiders. Jump lists are contextual menus that show up on the screen when you right-click an icon on the taskbar, in case you are not familiar with the feature. Jump lists give users access to recent files, pinned items, and popular programme actions. Now, these features are available through the Microsoft Store.

The most recent version of the Microsoft Store allows you to right-click the icon to enter a certain category (Apps, Gaming, Movies, Library), and to launch recently added apps. It’s by no means a revolutionary advancement, but it’s still a good inclusion that makes the Microsoft Store a little more practical.

Support for jump lists joins other improvements. Microsoft recently unveiled for its marketplace. Microsoft implemented a better and more streamlined search UX as well as the capability to find software goodies that are packaged with your PC earlier this month.
