For example I have TightVNC Viewer pinned to taskbar, it does not allow a jumplist (pinning multiple items or storing recent items). However I have a couple of shortcuts to vncviewer.exe that take arguments. Is there a way to get these in a jumplist for the vncviewer taskbar icon anyway?

Found jumplist launcher already, but it's not exactly what I'm after + it's buggy (cannot add arguments to the exe)

no that's for pinning anything to taskbar - I have n problem pinngn vncviewer.exe to the taskbar, I want to add shortcuts to the jumplist (edited question for clarity) –  stijn Jan 15 '11 at 16:06
    
Is it buggy or just lacking a feature you want? Sounds like the latter. –  Daniel Beck Jan 15 '11 at 16:09
    
no it's buggy: I add a parameter, the gui supports it, and it doesn't work as expected (ie doesn't work at all and gives an error). That's what I call a bug. And I've been programming long enough to know what a bug is. See my comment here: en.www.ali.dj/jumplist-launcher/#comment-129415043 –  stijn Jan 15 '11 at 16:33

Nevermind that this is way late, but Jumplist Extender sounds like it does what you were looking for.

so JumplistLauncher does what I want, but it doesn't allow me to enter arguments for vncviewer. However I found msdn's Jump List Sample on which I assume JumplistLauncher is based. I modified the code and made an app that reads a simple settings file in which I specify tasks (== exe path, arguments, title and icon) for the jumplist. This is basically everything JumplistLauncher does, but without the gui, and it does work with arguments.

See Jumplist Launcher Lets You Create Custom Jump Lists in Windows 7 :

If you want to go a step further and create a custom jump list then you’ll have to use a third-party tool called the Jumplist Launcher. You can add up to 60 programs, files or folders to the program interface and pin it to the taskbar using this tool.

It can create this kind of jumplists :

Here is an alternate method to pin just about anything, not sure if an argument could be incorporated or not.

it's not what I'm after: I want to set any item in the jumplist, so after something is pinned already.. –  stijn Jan 16 '11 at 16:23
