Jump Lists are available on all taskbar icons for applications. Their purpose is to allow easy access to common tasks for the given application. When the user right clicks on an icon (or presses their finger and drags upwards) a contextual menue is shown for that program. The contents depend largely on the individual developer.

Common Contents

All programs contain options to:

  • Close all windows (if any are open)
