I've been using Start8 from early versions and i noticed a bug that has not yet been fixed.
This is how to reproduce the bug (you're supposed to have at least 1 recently used item in the jump list):
- right click on taskbar
- click on properties
- click on jump list tab
- uncheck both privacy settings and click on apply
- check again both privacy settings and click on apply
- click on start button: all items are still there (when they're supposed to have been cleared!)
- let start menu disappear and click again on start button, now all items are finally gone
So basicly you need to make start menu appear twice after clearing recents, to see recents disappear from start menu.
Hope it will be fixed in next releases.
Thanks in advance!
