Hi,
either you have deactivated the feature:
right on taskbar -> properties -> Tab "Start Menu" and the two privacy options should be checked
or you might perhaps run into an issue that a corrupted file in your app data folder has been created.
Please see details here BUT read through the comments - the detailed file names are different per computer - so move all files to another folder, open Excel, open a file, close Excel and then move the items back without overwriting (hence ignoring) the newly created files:

I think that is the Windows 7 (or 8) Jump list you are seeing -- it shows recently opened documents.  You can pin docs to this list so they show up permanently by clicking the little pushpin icon to the right of the name.  If you want to have an icon on the taskbar to just open one workbook, try this method which I used to create an Access database taskbar item (it should work just as well for an Excel workbook):

1.      Create a folder for the new toolbar – I made one called Taskbar Items under the default folder for my user name.
2.      Right-drag the database (workbook) to the new folder, and select Create Shortcut Here from the context menu when dropping it.
3.      Edit the shortcut name as desired.
4.      Right-click the taskbar and select New toolbar…
5.      Select the Taskbar Items toolbar:
6.      The new toolbar appears on the right side of the taskbar, with the toolbar name displayed:
7.      Unlock the Taskbar if it is locked.
8.      Right-click the toolbar name and uncheck the Show Text and Show Title items.
9.      Now you will see a small Access icon representing the database (Excel item representing the workbook), that you can click to open the database (workbook), just as in Windows XP.

For a fuller explanation (with screen shots), see my Access Archon article:
