Removing Taskbar Tasks from Jump List

Hello,


Does anyone know if it is possible to remove the Taskbar Tasks from a particular programs jump list, all i want to see is the close window option.


Any help on this would be appreciated.


Thanks


Gareth

Thanks for the reply.

That is not what i'm trying to acheive though i want to restrict Taskbar Tasks on the jump list so instead of having Close window, Pin this program to taskbar and open another session you jsut have Close window.
