I am looking for a way to make a jump list for the windows task bar for application shortcuts. Kinda like the quick launch toolbar but with the jump list look. I tried to make my own 'toolbar' but that does what the quick launch bar did before.
Try this program: Jump List Launcher . It lets you create your own list of shortcuts to programs or whatnot, and is a true jumplist in both appearance and functionality.
I haven't gotten around to trying it yet, but a while ago I found a program that I think does what you want: 7stacks. (It doesn't look like a jump list though; it is glass instead.)
Well, if you want to do this as an application than I would suggest getting a copy of Microsoft Visual C++ and writing a program that implements ICustomDestinationList.
Exposes methods that allow an application to provide a custom Jump List, including destinations and tasks, for display in the taskbar.
