AutomaticDestinations and CustomDestinations folders

Hello

Do you know how these 2 folders are created in AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows\Recent ?
This is where the jumplists, etc... are stored.

After installing Windows 10, the Recent directory is empty
I use Privacy Protector from Windowd 10 Manager and an option created these 2 folders, but this option is no longer present

And even if I have jumplist, these 2 folders are not created
Maybe a modified registry key ?

Thanks

You can do these in your windows 10: Click on start button and type regedit and press Enter to open Registry editor, Do Click to view Address Bar is turned on, paste this into Address Bar at top and do enter.

Recent already exist in Default account and a copy is made from Default when a new user account logs in.
What is the other folder name? I'm lost.

There are only these 2 folders (AutomaticDestinations and CustomDestinations folders) in the Recent directory
Do you have the same on your Windows ?

The answer could be here:

I have checked the wim image and Recent folder exist but it is empty.

In the properties, I have the files and folders, but the directory is empty

Is it because I disabled this option with NTLite?

I tried to "pinned" an .exe to the taskbar, folders do not appear

Like I said, using Privacy Protector, and deleting the "Jumplist", Recent, etc ... the folders appear
I do not know what is changed, I have a Regshot before/after, but I do not see which registry key could modify this

If you can watch

Thanks

I tested by activating the option and it's the same

I noticed that if I delete the Recent items directory, and recreate it, the 2 folders are created in this directory
I don't see how to delete and recreate this "Recent" directory automatically (as Privacy Protector does)

If 'windows explorer' isn't pinned, then pin it in the taskbar.
Open 'windows explorer' then pin a folder, not a program.


In the attached file log I can't know if the created reg keys are removed when privacy protector removes the folder.

Try a batch file, add the commands to delete the Recent dir content.

Already tried, and always the same

On the other hand in CMD, these files appear
They don't appear in the explorer

I'll try for folder pinned in the taskbar

Thanks
