Windows 7 Jump List

A  ‘jump list’ refers to a way of quickly jumping (moving to and opening) a document or file that has been recently used.  The only caveat is that the program under which the file lives is showing on the Taskbar.  For example, you wish to jump to a Word document, so you could do it easily provided you have the Word Program icon showing on the Taskbar. Here’s how:

  1. Click on the program’s taskbar icon once, hold that click and slowly drag up.
  2. And there’s your jumplist for that program.  For example if was the Word program icon you did the click and slow drag upwards on, you would see recent Word documents.
  3. Simply click on the file you wish to open and the job is done!
