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.
When you right-click on the Jumplist Launcher icon present on the taskbar, you’ll see all your favorite programs there.
