MS Word Jump List doesn't work from task bar in Windows 10

I have several apps on my task bar and the jump lists for all of them work fine when I mouse over and right click.  Except for my MS Word app.  Nothing happens.

Same problem when I am at home screen, the MS Word app is only one not displaying jump list. In fact, when i try and retrieve it the home screen clears.

Have you tried to repair office ?
or a lot of people are posting that this has helped them:

Jump List...that is corrupted in AutomaticDestinations-hidden system folder is the likely solution.. To resolve and fix the issue, follow these steps:

1.Open Windows Explorer .
2.Type or copy and paste the following into the address bar:
%AppData%\Microsoft\Windows\Recent\AutomaticDestinations
3.Identify files that are comparatively larger in size than the rest of the file, such as files that have file size of 1 MB or more.
Delete the abnormal file.

Tip: If you do not want to retain the Jump Lists’ recent items history on all applications, just delete all the automaticDestinations-ms files in the folder.


4.The recent items functionality on Jump Lists will be restored. The recent items on the Jump Lists will be re-added as the program is been used. However, do note that the solution does not restore the previously pinned items. So user will have to pin new items again.
