Does it support applications with variable titles? mIRC, for example does not have an actual "window title".

@Angel Blue01: Thanks :) Technically, Extender can overwrite existing jumplists, but the target program can change it back at any time, so it won't work. E.g. If your program has a "recently used" section, it'll be changing the jumplist a lot so your custom one won't show. Haven't figured out how to stop that yet, but try and see!

@th3rEsa: Yeah, you can just put "mIRC" as the title, without quotes.

FIXED:

* Command line task creation will sometimes crash. (#41)

* When saving, taskbar icons will sometimes shift position (#37)

* UAC/administrative windows cannot accept jumplists or their tasks (#49)

* [Critical] "Access denied" when selecting a UAC/administrative main window. (#47)

64-BIT USERS: If some of your jumplist tasks stopped working for built-in Windows applications (e.g. Calculator, Snipping Tool,) download this replacement script to fix the problem:

http://jumplist.gsdn-media.com/JLE_Common.ahk (Right click, "Save Target As")

Save it to "%appdata%\JumplistExtender\AHK\JLE_Common.ahk" , and that should fix the problem. I'm including this fix with a minor v0.2-B release, upcoming during the week...

BUG NOTE: Has anyone had a problem where your previously created jumplists won't be saved/refreshed if you tried to edit them? Such a problem is described here:

Now, I found a few glitches while testing the program. Creating a jumplist from scratch works fine, but editing it is a completely different story. Most of the times changes won’t be saved until you “reset” the list by disabling and enabling it again. Besides those bugs, however, it’s still a very useful app for all of us who miss jumplists everywhere!

But this is the very first time I've heard this bug, so I have trouble figuring out what's wrong. Please let me know if you've experienced this, too! If you don't have a Neowin account, send me mail! digimarco35@yahoo.com

Great to see this project active. Just installed v0.2C.

When I try to import the Firefox.jlp from the website, I get the following error:

jlerror1-1.png

(the German part of the sentence says A part of the path [pixelated username] could not be found.)

Something wrong on my end?

Thanks for your input! That's a weird bug, and I don't experience it... can you check to see if there's an "Imported" folder in the icons? Follow these steps:

1. Go to "%appdata%\JumplistExtender\Icons" in Windows Explorer

2. If there is no folder that is named "Imported" (in English,) create that folder.

3. Try importing the pack again

Let me know!

You're welcome.

Creating the folder fixed this problem. Importing worked fine this time.

Thanks, and keep up the good work.

Sorry for the double post, ran out of time to edit my previous post.

Anyway, here's something that might help. You surely have noticed the differences between the Firefox icon Windows naturally uses in the Firefox jumplist and the one Jumplist Extender displays when you point it to the official icon. I've extracted the icon so now they look the the same. Compare original with tweaked. Maybe it helps :) . Here's the icon, feel free to use it since it's inside the original Firefox.exe:

Sure thing! That happens because I don't have Extender looking for the small icons -- it just resizes the big ones. I'll see if I can rectify that. I reuploaded the pack too :)

I try to create my own or add the calculator and firefox jumplist pack, but nothing happens after clicking the new jumplist items, no warning or any actions.

I am using Windows 7 Professional 64 bits, firefox 3.6.7, and Jumplist Extender 0.2 C.

It is my first time using this program.

I'm in love with this program.

To tell the truth, after using keyboard launchers, memorizing arbitrary hotkeys etc. for over a decade, I'm just so tired. I seriously can't take any more of this pointless memorizing of custom hotkeys, program names and commands. Visual commands are just so much easier.

I'm not sure I explained myself very well (I'm tired) but let's just say that this program is gold.

Is anyone else having issues accessing the website currently? I am not having any luck and I tried two different connections.

For those looking for the source: Find it in the Google Code downloads page. Sorry for taking so long to post it: (a.) My host disappeared without me ever knowing, and (b.) I no longer work on the project (partly because the source became too unruly for me!)

FYI, if you're running on another language besides English (like German), then you've probably witnessed JLE not doing its job. The reason why is that the shortcut replacements (the ones that actually contain the jump list) are not being pinned to taskbar. Pinning to taskbar is done by a mandatory workaround: It takes the text from the "Pin to Taskbar" and "Unpin to Taskbar" menu options, and executes them automatically. However, it does not work when the text is in another language, like German or Spanish.

So here's how to fix that:

1. Go to "C:\Program Files\Jumplist Extender". Open "PinShortcut.vbs".

JLE_ReplaceStrings.png

2. You'll need to replace the "Pin" strings (shown in blue above). To see them in your language, right-click on any program shortcut in Windows Explorer. Replace the text above with the following, in your language:

JLE_ShortcutPinStrings.png

3. Do the same for the two "Unpin" strings (shown in green above). First, take that same program shortcut and PIN it to both the taskbar and start menu, so that the unpin menu options show up. Then replace the text above with the following, in your language:

JLE_ShortcutUnpinStrings.png

4. Save the script and try it out. Custom jump lists should work now in your language.

Note for jump list coders: Firefox presents the best solution for automatically pinning shortcuts: it looks up the specific language string in shell32.dll, so shortcut pinning works in any language. See source (search "shell32.dll" for relevant section).

Jumplist Extender v0.3 is released! Non-English (foreign language) users are STRONGLY RECOMMENDED to download this release, as this fixes a major bug!

Download v0.3 (1.62 MB)

FIXED:

  • Non-English systems would not apply jump lists to the taskbar. This has now been fixed.
  • Broken update check would display weird code in the menus.
  • Old web links were broken, but now fixed.

KNOWN ISSUES:

  • Recent file history cannot be used with jump lists.

Some testing of this release would be appreciated :)

Jumplist Extender v0.3-B is released!

Download v0.3-B (1.7 MB)

FIXED:

  • Log files were being made on the Desktop by mistake.
  • Various other minor quirks.

Again, non-English users (especially German) should try this release out, since it should make Jumplist Extender work in your system!

In other news, I'm looking over the bug reports listed on the code page (finally). I'll respond to them at some point this week.
