Hello. I have a question to ask you.

How do you customize the Jump Lists in Windows 7 to either add 'task' functions that are not shown you want or subtract "task' functions that are shown you do not want?

Please provide me the 'complete' instructions necessary to manually customize the Windows 7's Jump Lists.

Please reply.

Thank you!

Hopefully someone else within the EE community knows of a relatively easy way, but I haven't heard of one before.  I have seen online articles pertaining to home-grown C++ programs that can do this type of thing, but that's about it.  The following is a good example:

@ anyone:

Hello. Would any expert like to answer this question above as well? I got a good response, just looking for a less program oriented version like a program or simple system registry modification or script that can be easily user modified.

Please reply.

Thank you!

Only to add that this really seems to be a matter of programming, as opposed to relatively simple registry or group policy modifications.

@ Run5k:

Hello again. Thank you for your comment.

Yes, you are correct. It is a matter of programming.

I am going to close this thread now. I am awarding you somepoints to this question/thread since your response is a way or means I can see in order to accomplish this. It will work as I have performed part of this with success through testing.

However, I did some Googling and I did not see this before. I found one: http://www.sevenforums.com/tutorials/14067-jumplist-launcher-create-custom-jump-lists.html  .

It is a third party program (Jumplist Launcher) that is quite automated and easy to use. Windows Seven Forums does a great job how to download, install, and use it.

So, honestly, I am going to award you the full points since I cannot take them with me. I am taking the Accepted Solution since my solution is easier and quicker to accomplish than all the time consuming programming. I am being fair. Your solution is still an answer and will be awarded.

Again, thank you!
