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.

As you probably noticed last time, the images I have shown are mini-icons-default applications and those applications I have several. So let us consider in more detail how to achieve this for you too.

Notepad – –

This article is somewhat unusual in comparison to all previous ones, because it’s more like a conclusion and the summaryzing of the previous articles of this season. This is an example of interaction between the components of which I wrote recently: interprocess communication, command manager, the registration of extensions.

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.

It is clear that you do not want to mystify users by running unfamiliar and specific applications to open computer file in a specific way, or run the reg file. Everything should be done programmatically, as desired, or to offer to reassign him to open the files by default with your program.

Thus, the aim – to register programmatically on any extension of your program.
