As you can see, the little black arrow is there but no matter how many times I click it I can't see the recently used files. The same thing affects the taskbar menu (or whatever you call it), only these two options are available although I have watched many videos with VLC. This is happening only with VLC Media Player and IIRC only with the few latest releases of VLC (I'm now using the latest one, v.1.1.1). Is this a bug in VLC or is this affecting only my system? And if it is only my system, any thoughts about how to fix it (although it's not really a big problem)? I'm running Windows 7 Ultimate.
