Hello. I would like to know if this is issue is happening to me only, a bug, or an intended behavior: whenever I update LibreOffice and there's a change in the second number, e.g., from 6.0 to 6.1 (but not from 6.0.1 to 6.0.2), I loose the list of recently opened and pinned files in both the Windows taskbar (the list one sees when right clicks the LO Writer icon in taskbar, for example) and start menu (provided by StartIsBack+, that just fetches infos on recent files from Windows itself, maybe the registry, I don't know exactly). This happens because LO 6.1 seems to be treated -- or installed -- as a different program, with different folders, etc.

Is this intentional?

If it is intentional, is there any benefit from this? Because it's the "infinith" time I loose my curated list of pinned files and have to make it again from zero. Sure it's "just" an annoyance, but it's a frequent -- and old! -- annoyance, so it's a bit beyond that already.

This is not a bug, and this is not an intended behavior: this is a missing feature in integration with Windows shell: tdf#76131.
