In previous versions of Windows finding a way to easily access recently used folders, files and websites could be quite annoying. In this entry of our computer repairs How To(s), we look at the new *Jump List* feature in Windows 7 – allowing you to quickly access your recently used items.
Using Jump lists
Right click on a programme icon on the Taskbar to access Jump Lists, just as in this example of Internet Explorer. Notice that if you want you can pin these items to the Taskbar if you wish.
Once you have the jump list open simply click the first letter of an item to jump between them.
This is an example of the Jump List feature in the Start Menu making it easy to access recently opened items as well.
Every now and then you might want to clear out the jump list history, to do this Right-click on Start and choose Properties.
Under the Start Menu tab uncheck one or both boxes under Privacy to clear the Taskbar or Start menu item history or both.
This is a new feature in Windows 7 and it makes navigating items a lot faster.
