OneNote 2013 jumplist missing

OneNote 2013 should have a jumplist/task list like this when you right-click on its pinned icon in Windows 7 or later:

If it did not appear, make sure you have the correct (official) OneNote icon pinned. After that, open Run… dialog box (press Windows + R key combination), type the following and press Enter key:

onenote /initjumplist

It works in Command Prompt too, only you have to prefix “start ” (without quotation marks and with the trailing space character) to it.

Something in common!

How about a riddle for a change?

What do you think the following items have in common:

  1. Lord Voldemort
    Lord Voldemort is the main villain in the famous series of J.K. Rowling’s novels, Harry Potter
  2. Bradley Tank
    Standard lightly armored tank/IFV/APC of the United States.
  3. Master Boot Record
    A logical part of Hard Disk
  4. Norton Ghost
    A full-system backup/restore solution by Symantec corp.

Answer: Microsoft Word thinks they are all human names!

Microsoft Office 2003 or 2007 allows you to mark your documents with Smart Tags: Purple dotted underlines like hyperlinks which instead of opening a web page, pop up a menu with various options. Microsoft Word 2003 or 2007 can recognize certain types of data in your document and mark them with Smart Tag, including human names, addresses and measurement units.
