Executive Summary

Windows 7 offers a new way of controlling the desktop, managing the windows, and launching applications. The Windows 7 Taskbar is a new application-launching and window-switching mechanism that consolidates the functionalities from previous Windows OS Desktop mechanisms such as Quick Launch, Recent Documents, Notification area icons, desktop shortcuts, and running application windows. The presenters will take a deep dive into the Windows 7 Taskbar Jump Lists. One can think of a Jump List as own mini Start Menu for the application, giving some control over its appearance and functionality. The presenters will explore the COM interface and APIs used to customize Jump Lists.
