Man, you guys are quick
@Bman: Yeah, existing jumplists are replaceable -- not sure about editable
, though, but yes I definitely agree that it would be helpful. I'll look into that soon.
Anyways, I did some great work on Jumplist Extender (J7E) today, and it's coming together really nicely! I hope to release an "alpha" here within a week
or two -- perfectly functional jumplist'ing, but the config may throw exceptions, crash, etc., if a user goes beyond expected boundaries. To have an influx of bug reports would be extremely helpful with knowing what needs fixing, stuff like that.
As far as a preview
J7E allows you to specify File/Folders
and automatic Keyboard Shortcuts, Command Lines, and AutoHotKey scripts
to add to your jumplists. On a basic level, I feel that most program functions
can be reached via keyboard shortcut (e.g. pressing Ctrl+O in Notepad or Word will open a file,) or a command line switch (e.g. firefox.exe -new-tab, or foobar2000.exe /playpause.) AutoHotKey scripting is available for advanced users.
I could think of more specialized options, but these four are the most global towards all programs.
My own usage proves that jumplists come really
handy, when used the right way! E.g. In MS OneNote, I often have to switch between typing and pen writing, but it totally cripples my flow to search for the two buttons. However, jumplists make it easier to just flick up the list and select what I need!
Due to how jumplists are designed, J7E has to run as a background app to assign windows to their jumplists. That's okay -- Winfox
had to run in the background, too, to do the same thing for Firefox. Anyways, alpha hopefully coming soon.
