Win7 Jump List – II

The last time we stayed on the fact that we have a program that can “group” icons from taskbar. If you run it and understood, it was noticed that the program has one unpleasant flaw in the usability . When you set the program to run by default – it can not be seen. Required to rely on their memories and habits. So we will correct this deficiency.

There will always be running only one instance at one time.

I think that I should still consider how it works in reality. Focusing only on the differences that have emerged in real life. At the same time and will be seen asdescriptive material is different from a working prototype.
