For many Windows 7 users, Jump Lists feature may be just another Windows 7’s feature. But if you know how to use it efficiently it will help you boot productivity dramatically. For instance, you can pin your favorite file and folders to a related Jump List to open a file or folder effortlessly right from the Taskbar.
But you can’t easily add files, folders and program to a single Jump List by default. You need to use third-party tools to make it happen. Here is one such tool that aids you in creating custom Jump Lists. And you can also use this tool in Vista and XP as the program doesn’t actually use Windows 7’s Jump List Feature.
Jumplists is a tiny program for Windows 7, Vista and also XP to access files, folders and programs quickly. The program lets you create new Jump List so that you can pin as many files & folders you want to the Jump List.
But then there is a difference between this Jump Lists utility and Windows 7’s native Jump List feature. You open Jump Lists created by this tool by left click and Windows 7’s native Jump List feature by right-click.
How to use it:
Download, extract and run the tool to start creating new Jump Lists. First add a Jump List, and then add your favorite files, folders & programs to the list. Switch to Create Shortcuts, select your Jump List and then specify an icon to the new Jump List.
Finally, create a shortcut to the Jump List and then pin it the Taskbar (In Vista & XP, add shortcut to the Quick Launch). You are done with your new Jump List. Don’t forget to use the lift click to access these Jump Lists!
