JumpLaunch for your ol' Quick Launch folder.

Change is the most difficult when we are in the comfort zone. The same goes with Windows 7. I can't believe many people still comfortably using XP.
Well... for most of Windows 7 users, they complaint about the missing QuickLaunch folder. Well not really missing, just that it is harder to get to. Fret not... JumpLaunch comes to the rescue.

JumpLaunch is a missing link between taskbar and user. It is a simple program that can display quick launch shortcuts in a jump list. Just "pin" it to the taskbar and it is ready to use.
