Pin anything to jumplist

Is it possible to pin anything to a program's shortcut in the taskbar?

EX: I have Photoshop in my taskbar. Is it possible to pin some other adobe applications to it so when I right-click the PS icon, they appear in the jumplist?

Hello Lloyd,

By default, only files that can be opened by the pinned program on the taskbar will show up in it's Jump List as a recent item. You can pin these recent/frequent items. For example, recent text files for a pinned Notepad.

I'm not sure if that can be changed, but you might take a look at the program in the tutorial below to see if it may help.

Tried that program. I have to keep the program opened because the jumplists are in that programs jumplist. Is there some hack to make PS think it can open .exe or .lnk so I can pin the applications or shortcuts?

Is the jumplist thingy only doable for the IE8 icon in the taskbar if one clicks a saved link which resides on the HD? Somehow I got the impression that it should be populating the jumplist with sites visited within the browser, which would then give the option of course to pin them to the list....
