Although it has not been confirmed until now it was expected that Microsoft would take advantage of some of the new features of Windows 7 in upcoming software releases. The first application to take advantage of Jump Lists is Office 2010 according to Robert’s Windows Now blog. Jump Lists provide quick access to program features. In the case of Outlook 2010 those are quick links to write a new email message, create a new appointment, contact or task and to go to various sections in Outlook like the inbox or the calendar.
The other Microsoft Office 2010 programs are also supporting jump lists that provide quick access to the usual assortment of recent files and program quick links.
