Make your Taskbar smarter with Jump List in Windows® 7
Access documents, pictures, songs or websites that you turn to each day in a smarter way with Jump List.
This is a new feature that was not available in the earlier version of Microsoft operating systems.
Jump List takes you to documents, pictures, songs or websites that you have gone through in a single day. It can be opened by right-clicking a program icon on the windows 7 taskbar.
Microsoft claims that the Jump List for IE 8 will show frequently viewed websites, while the Jump List for Windows Media Player 12 lists commonly played tunes.
You can pin anything you want to on a Jump List for a specific program. Microsoft says that some Jump Lists will allow you to quickly access commands like making new email messages.
The tool gives every application a room for categorized destinations and tasks that are specific to that application.
There are two applications of the Jump List in the current Windows 7 -Â one as part of the traditional Start Menu, and another as a popup menu from the application’s taskbar button.
Jump List allows you to add Items to the custom Jump List category. The feature appears on the Start menu and also on the Taskbar after you right-click on an icon.
The feature has been designed in such a way that it can provide you with quick access to the documents and tasks associated with your applications.
