Jumplist Launcher: Create Custom Jumplists in Windows 7

Windows 7 comes with a new feature "Taskbar Jumplist" which appears when you right-click on a taskbar button. Its one of the most useful features of Windows 7.

But what if you want to create your own jumplist? Windows 7 doesn't allow that but there is a very small freeware "Jumplist Launcher" which allows you to add upto 60 files/programs inside a jumplist.

  • You can have multiple Jumplist-Launcher-Icons (with different files/programs) on your superbar by copying the folder
  • Files can be dragged into the Jumplist-Launcher from Windows-Explorer
  • Icon and name of the entry can be customized
  • Jumplist-items can be added by dragging single files on Jumplist-Launchers taskbar-icon while holding the shift-key

How to Use:

  • Start Jumplist-Launcher.exe
  • Add Groups by clicking the 'Add Group' button and rename them by clicking on their name in the treeview
  • Add files/programs by either clicking on the '...' button or directly dragging them into the Jumplist-Launcher window
  • You can reorganize the order of groups and files by selecting them in the treeview and pressing the up or down-button
