I have maybe two dozen standard lister layouts I use for backing up (syncing) specific files or directories to external disk drives. The dropdown list from the taskbar, only lists a subset of these lister layouts, and doesn't provide the ability to scroll further down the list to get at the lister I need.
Under edit listers, you have the option to create folders for lister layouts, but these don't appear in the taskbar. So, I must call up D.O. (any lister will do) and go to Settings, Lister Layouts to have access to these folders. This is a workaround, but it would be nice to have the option to either pin a Folder to the Start Menu, scroll through more listers on the taskbar or access folders in the taskbar.
Ah, it's called a "jumplist". I learn something new every day...
The right-click on the desktop was a good tip. It works as you said. Given that I usually have several programs running simultaneously, getting to the desktop isn't the quickest way to the job done. The tray icon seems to be the most expeditious route. I had no idea that the tray icon behaved differently than the jumplist.
Just curious though, how do I setup a Jumplist item that opens a pop-up menu with all my layouts (with submenus)?
… and thanks for the speedy response. I'll say once again, I'm loving D.O. I found a two new setting just today that make my life easier. Here's hoping you'll be around a long-long time!
