Get Quick Access to Recently Used Items
Windows 7, Microsoft latest operating system, allows you to access Jump Lists feature from your keyboard. Jump Lists - which appear on the Start menu as well as on the taskbar when a user right-clicks on an icon - are like little application-specific Start menus. They can also be found on the icons of applications specifically pinned to the taskbar or the Start menu.
Just like you can use Win+1, Win+2, etc to cycle between open windows on the taskbar, there is a built-in Windows 7 shortcut key that opens up the Jump Lists for the first 9 taskbar icons. This means that for the icon in the taskbar, you can use shortcut key Win+Alt+1 to open the Jump Lists.

It is an excellent way to access recently used items more easily and more quickly and one of the best features in Windows 7. Use Windows+ Alt+ (1-9) to quickly launch the Jump Lists of a program. You can use this shortcut along with other taskbar shortcuts such as Windows + T to enhance your productivity easily.
The feature can by default contain the application’s shortcut, the ability to toggle pinning, the ability to close one or all windows, access to specific tasks related with the application, and once you start using the application, a list of recent documents or destinations depending on the application.
