Modifying Icon Locations
The taskbar in Windows 8 was designed with you in mind. For the first time
you can determine the location of each program—even the location of programs
you open yourself or that are currently open.
Moving your programs is simple: just left-click and hold any icon and drag
it where you want it to be. Applications that are not pinned by default always
appear at the end of the list, but you can move them again as soon as they load.
Tweaking Jump Lists
Jump Lists are a major component of the new taskbar. When you right-click an
application, you are presented with a number of new options relevant to that
application. Depending on the application, you are shown recent items,
common tasks, and more. Most applications will show recently opened items, such
as Word documents when you right-click Microsoft Word. Other applications
such as Windows Messenger and Windows Media Player have enhanced Jump
Lists that enable you to perform common tasks, as shown in Figure 6-11. If you
want to sign off temporarily on Windows Messenger, just right-click the taskbar
shortcut and you can quickly change your setting.
Overall, Jump Lists are a great addition to the new taskbar because they
enable you to jump to tasks faster than before. To make Jump Lists work better
for you, there is a tweak that will help you customize the feature.
Figure 6-11: Windows 8 offers Jump Lists.
