This looks very interesting, thank you

I had the wrong idea, at first, I though it was a utility to add items to existing jump lists. However, I can definitely see a use for this.

Having the ability to use multiple instances could prove useful...

i did finally manage to get one item in the jumplist, but the icon was wrong...

I should have done some Unit-tests maybe
I'll check the reasons behind this behaviour when I'm at home.

Version 2 is out.
Updated the top post.

Now up to 60 folders/apps/files possible!

More info here:

Jumplist-Launcher Version 2 - Up to 60 items

I had a closer look to microsofts documentation of the taskbar-features but couldn't find anything useful.
Is it always gone after rebooting?

when running jumplistlauncher from a flash drive, when i push "create jumplist" i get this error:

Zugriffsverletzung beiAdresse0O4062B7 in Modul
JumplistLauncher.exe. Lesen von Adresse FFFFFFFF.
it runs ok from my system drive, but it never uses the icon i tell it to - it always uses the folder.ico

running 7229

Ah, I'll try to reproduce the error when I'm at home.

Could you tell me 2 files (including directories) whose icons don't show up like they should?
Changing the icon doesn't work as well, right?

The error is likely to be in my function,where I get associated icons.

If we can't figure out the error this way I'll implement a debug-mode.

So okay... I've played around with the actual Jumplist Launcher application, but you're really limited to just one jumplist. You can't have multiple instances, or seperate jumplists on your taskbar (at least not that I am aware of). Is there a way to create your very own jumplists and have a few...

Jump lists shrunk?
Okay, here's a new problem. Couldn't find it by googling, may I'll have better luck with you guys. My jumplists have gone kinda wonky. Since yesterday they are suddenly "cut off".
