Windows 7 Libraries Favorites and Jump Lists
Of course, there is more to working smarter than just getting your applications started. Windows 7 Home Premium offers even more ways to tailor your Windows 7 installation to your specific usage needs.
Launching an application efficiently is great, but what if you have different needs for that one application? Jump Lists provide a way to further specify how any common application, tool, or feature is started. Recently opened files, for example, are displayed in a sub-menu for the application which appears when highlighted. Start Menu Jump Lists are indicated by a triangle to the right of the item. Just click, or move your mouse to the right, and the Jump List menu appears. To view the Jump List from the Task Bar, right-click the icon. Is there an item in the Recent listing that you want to be a permanent part of the Jump List? Just click the thumbtack icon to pin it to the Jump List forever; that is, until you choose to un-pin it after right-clicking the item.
Finding and using all of your applications and programs in Windows 7 more easy and faster is good. Increasing productivity further with Windows 7 Home Premium requires being more efficient with your files, too.
The trouble with files is that they never stay in one place for long. Fortunately, getting the most out of Windows 7 Home Premium includes using new and improved file management and user interface tools.
Too many people only use Libraries as they come pre-installed by default in Window 7 Home Premium Edition. To really take advantage of all Windows 7 offers for finding, organizing, and using your files, you will need to--you guessed it--right-click.
Right-click on any Folder or existing Library and you'll get options for customizing your Libraries. Clicking on a Folder gives the ability to add that Folder to an existing Library quickly and easily. Right-clicking on Libraries in My Computer or Explorer, or on the empty background of an open Library window, gives the ability to create a new Library. Use Libraries to solve file organization problems that arise out of needing to group and sort files in different ways for different needs. For example, if you want to store all your family photos in My Pictures and date-based subdirectories, but want to store all of the photos you use for business in a Work folder with project-based subdirectories, you can still view all of them in one place by creating an All Photos library and adding both folder trees.
Finally, the Favorites made so popular in web browsers by bookmarking sites have been freed from Internet Explorer and let loose on the Windows 7 Home Premium desktop. Make any folder a Favorite, just by right-clicking and adding it to your favorites.
