Windows 7: jump list question

jump list question

I'm going to speculate that the answer to my question is "no".... buuuut:

Is there a way to create a custom jump list item for an application WITHOUT resorting to a third-party launcher? (I don't mind a third-party utility to edit the list, but not a third party program that has to act as the "host" item pinned to the start-menu / taskbar.)

So far, every search result I'm finding doesn't seem to be what I'm looking for, such as the Jumplist Launcher.

Thanks,

Not that I'm aware of. There are a few ways you can customize jump lists within Windows, however; this article explains changing the number of recent items in the list, for example.

JumpLaunch is a third-party app but it's very unobtrusive and has the simple function of turning your Quick Launch folder into an application jump list.

Hope that helps.
