A new feature in Windows 7 lets you make Windows jump to your command.
The Taskbar has long been the hot spot for interacting with programs and documents in Windows.With Windows 7, it has undergone a significant change from previous versions. Now, when you hold the cursor over an icon you will see a preview of the open application, or can click to start it. If there are multiple instances of the app running, then each gets it own preview, ideal if you have many spreadsheets or images open in one program. Jump Lists come into play when you right-click on one of the icons. There are some smart videos on YouTube that show the features in action better than screenshots can.
Jump Lists are not just restricted to programs and documents, if you keep making changes using Control Panel, you will find the most recently accessed functions available from the Jump List, Windows Media Player provides access to recently played tracks and playlists.
Finally, some interesting peeks of features that didn't quite make it in to Windows 7 are starting to appear. This would have been cool, the bat-signal approach to Taskbar
highlights - perhaps in Windows 8 on our 3D screens!
