Windows 7: Customizing Applications Jumplists

Customizing Applications Jumplists

Is there a way to modify a jumplist for a program that doesn't use it, or is that built into the app itself?

I'm mainly interested in virtualbox, I'd like to pin the virtual machines to the jumplist so I don't have to futz with the gui. Like wise for opera.

Do I gotta sit on my hands or is there tweaks for that?

I created a shortcut to my VBox XP-vm using the VBox command line and pinned the shortcut. It works for me.

Why no specs?

I did that too for one workstation, but I'm switching between setting up three or four different virtual machines, it'd be nice to keep them together.

Maybe I'll just use this Jumplist Launcher - Create Custom Jump Lists

JumpLists
Hey, Regarding JumpLists for Windows Explorer (or any others that are relavant), do you not think the Pinned Catagory should appear under the Frequent Catagory. I'm all for the JumpLists, but if I pin something shouldn't that mean I want quick access to it. So why put clutter between me and what...
