Hello,

if you click an icon on the Windows task bar with the right mouse button most programs show the last used files. I think that is a useful function. Sadly, Scrivener 1 never shows any files. The new Scrivener 3 actually does! But only converted projects from Scrivener 1, not projects native to Scrivener 3. Could that be changed so that native files are shown also?

Hello! When you say it doesn't show projects native to Scrivener 3, does that only apply to newly created projects or also to projects that are opened either by using "File" > "Open" or by double-clicking the .scrivx file directly?

In testing this, it looks to me like it's showing all projects that are opened either externally or through the "Open" action, but not projects that were only accessed via the "New Project" option. Does that match what you are seeing?

Bryan, that is the experience I have when just testing this out as it did not yet show my newly created Scrivener 3 project, but it did show one I had created new in Scrivener 3 and the opened by double clicking on it.

Right, both ways function. Up to now I openened Scrivener and only chose last used projects. Now I can just click the project on the task bar. Thanks!

I'm not doing the beta testing on v. 3, but I just want to say that in using v. 1.9.7 under Windows 7, I do find that right-clicking the Scrivener icon on the taskbar does pop up a long list of previous files and projects. Many of them are actually just files I've used in a project at one time or another, now that I look at them, and only a few are .scrivx files. Odd.
