The joy of jump lists
Jump lists are one of 7’s deceptively simple improvements. On the surface, a jump list looks like nothing more than an application-specific version of the recent documents list. Hover your mouse pointer over any program in the Start Menu that displays a small arrow to its right and a list of the files you have opened most recently using that application will slide out. Click any of those files to launch the application and open that file. You’ll find similar jump lists when you right-click any program icon in the taskbar.
