Outlook 2010 and Windows 7 - Jump Lists

  • Print
  • E-mail

A very very quick tip!

One of the great new features of Windows 7 is the jump list.

When you right click on an icon on the task bar you are presented with it's jumplist

The jumplist as a minimum usually contains a list of recently used documents .

However, depending on the application you're using you will get additional options in the guise of "actions"

The Outlook 2010 jumplist looks like this.

From here I can create new Outlook items such as e-mails and tasks.

This may look quite trivial but it can be a huge time saver as you no long have to actually switch to the application to create a new item.

As more and more applications start to support this we should see some interesting actions!
