Jumplist Launcher Lets You Create Custom Jump Lists in Windows 7

Ads by Google

The new jump list feature in Windows 7 is awesome, isn’t it? It lets you jump directly to the files, folders web page you visit frequently just by right clicking on the pinned program icon on taskbar.

If you want to go a step further and create a custom jump list then you’ll have to use a third-party tool called the Jumplist Launcher. You can add up to 60 programs, files or folders to the program interface and pin it to the taskbar using this tool.

To use this program download the zip file on your computer and extract the JumplistLauncher.exe file. Double click on the executable file to start it. It can also be used as a portable tool and stored on a thumb drive.

Now you have to add the shortcuts, files and folders inside its interface. There are two options to do so. First is adding files (and shortcuts too) and folders with the help of “Add File” and “Add Folder” buttons available.  You can also add it by  giving name, file location, parameters, selecting icon and clicking on “save changes”. But this method is boring and time taking.

The second method to add items is through drag and drop, and this is less time consuming.

When you complete adding all your favorite programs and files, click “Create Jumplist” button. Now right-click on Jumplist launcher.exe file and select “Pin This Program To Taskbar” from the context menu.

    I cannot get this program to work. I created the lists and just like in the screenshot in this page, there is no “create jumplist” button like they describe in the text, only an “update” jumplist and when I click on it nothing happens, and when I pin the program to the task bar it doesn’t give me the items in the jumplist.

    I have had no luck with this whatsoever, editing requires administrator priviledges and is quite cumbersome, and just like Joe said it simply doesn’t provide any of the items I’ve spend ages entering. It’s a very good idea but simply doesn’t work!

    Ah, it doesn’t work if you try to put it in “Program Files” etc, leave it in your user folder and it works fine :)
