tasks on the taskbar

im not sure how im gonna explain it but im sure you guys should get it :)
basically on the task bar if you right click on a running program you get a list called tasks and this also happens in the start menu, some programs have an extra tab. like MSN will have tasks saying email, go to WL home, then online, away, busy etc etc, and internet explorer will have things like new tab, but firefox doesn't and other programs that I would like them to have, is there anyway I can create my own? or is there any programs out there that will do it for me?

cheers :)

I think it's jump list support you're talking about. It's program specific. The programmers need to incorporate it into the program itself. I don't know of any apps that will do it.

Firefox 3.7 has jumplist support from what I've read.

Hello Reedy,

This may be able to allow you to create one for it.

Jumplist Launcher - Create Custom Jump Lists

Hope this helps,

BSOD During Various Tasks
About 2-3 weeks ago I started suddenly getting random, frequent restarts. After some trial and error (including reinstalling Windows 7) and a little research, I determined the most likely (and cheapest to repair) cause was the PSU (which was only 600W). So I replaced it with an 850W and the...
