    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.

    If it is only being seen in VLC, its very likely a problem with VLC. If other applications are working fine, you may want to contact the VLC developers and see if they are aware of the issue. To save time, you may even go so far as to reference this thread.

    I'm pretty sure it's NOT a problem with VLC because I just noticed that only my user account is affected.

    It happened again. This time Windows Explorer was affected too. I couldn't pin folders to the explorer icon in my taskbar and previously pinned items disappeared.

    I fixed the problem by deleting all files in C:\Users\%username%\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows\Recent\AutomaticDestinations (all *.automaticDestinations-ms files) but as a result lost all explorer history/pinned items.

    VLC (initially VideoLAN Client) is a highly portable multimedia player for various audio and video formats, including MPEG-1, MPEG-2, MPEG-4, DivX, MP3, and OGG, as well as for DVDs, VCDs, and various streaming protocols. It also can be used as a server for unicast or multicast streams in IPv4 or IPv6 on a high-bandwidth network.
