But I forgot one – there’s a jump list on the taskbar icon too, which you can access by right-clicking.
The files listed here are the same as the ones in the Start menu jump list, so if you pin something here, it’ll show up in both places.
The image above also highlights another nice feature of the taskbar, which is that you can pin programs to it. (In case the Start menu and desktop icons weren’t enough options for you.)
In this screenshot, the Internet Explorer icon is an example of what a pinned program looks like when it’s not open. Jump lists are available for pinned programs all the time; for regular programs you can only access the jump list when you already have at least one instance of the program running.
You can also start a new instance of the program from the jump list (I find this especially handy for Windows Explorer), or close all the program windows. In the image above, I only have one drawing open, but if I had more than one, the last option would say “Close all windows.”
