[New-bugs-announce] [issue43236] Windows Taskbar Jump List fails to open Recent files

New submission from veganaiZe <veganaiZe-bot at yahoo.com>:

OS: Windows 8.1 (x86-64)
Python: 3.8.7

When I right-click on IDLE's rectangle/icon in the Windows taskbar it displays a "jump list" which contains recent/pinned filenames.

A program will typically open a file when it's selected from the list.

IDLE doesn't open the file, nor does it switch to the corresponding editor window if the file is already open.  It seems to ignore the selection entirely.

If IDLE is going to display a "Recent" list, within the jump list, then it would be nice if it actually opened the file(s).
