Customise Jumplist Entries In Windows 7's Taskbar

We love how productive Windows 7's jumplists can make us, but some applications don't have as many options as we'd like in the jumplist. Free program Jumplist Extender lets you add nearly any action to a program's jumplist with ease.Some applications only have a few options in their right-click menu, while others won't let you do anything but pin it to the taskbar or close all its windows. Jumplist extender lets you create new items for your favourite programs very simply. Just add your item to the jumplist, and tell it what to do when you click it: you can make it invoke a keystroke in the window, run a command from the command line, or even run an AutoHotkey command. Sending keystrokes to the window alone means you can invoke nearly any menu item from a given program—say, showing the History window in Google Chrome — right from the taskbar. It's incredibly simple to use, and seriously boosts the taskbar's usefulness — and you can tailor it exactly to how you use that program.

Jumplist Extender is a free download for Windows 7.
