What are Automatic & Custom Destinations in FARR?
« on: October 12, 2012, 05:21:40 AM »
I dont remember these before:

'Automatic Destinations' & 'Custom Destinations'

Screenshot - 2012-10-12 , 11_08_50.pngWhat are Automatic & Custom Destinations in FARR?

they seem to be all in the roaming\MS\windows\recent folder.

Can anyone tell me what they are?
Thanks
Tom

They store the recent / pinned jump list files which should be automatically re-created when files are pinned or accessed.

Thanks ewemoa.

I dont remember seeing them in FARR before, but this could be because the files I expected to be at the top of the list here are not showing (that's not relevant here beyond making me notice these files).

I changed some folder settings a while back, maybe it's because of that (show system files I guess).
Will change that setting back to 'hide' and see.
hmm, no immediate difference. Maybe they were always in FARR ...

FWIW, I see a "Custom Destinations" in what looks to be an analogous location on one of the pcs here.
