Go ahead, Jump from List to List in Microsoft® Windows® 7!
Get quicker access to documents and tasks with the Jump List feature.
Until the release of Windows Vista, the Start Menu was the lone launch pad for documents and applications on a computer. Then Vista came along with the Search Box and changed the whole face of document and application accessibility.
Notable improvisations came along with the Search Box, but it had its own drawbacks. For instance, it was incapable of enabling access to documents and tasks which were specific to an application.
Jump Lists in Windows 7 takes you to files, folders, websites, and applications you visit every day at the click of a tab. Each application or program has its own Jump Lists which are application-centric.
Easy and quick access to documents and tasks sums up the new Jump List feature in Windows 7. Simply veiled as the colloquial jump-start in your PC, it also runs like a parallel Start Menu, or menus, for several smaller applications on a computer.
It appears like a pop-up menu on an application’s taskbar tab.
Although, the functionality remains the same, Jump Lists on the Taskbar appears different from Jump Lists on the Start Menu.
In a nutshell, the Jump List is healthy mix of features, in itself, which includes application shortcuts, accessibility to application-centric tasks, option to close a single or several windows, and once an application starts running on your system, you can retrieve recent documents or destinations with ease.
