JumpControl by ProtoSphere JumpControl by ProtoSphere
Windows 7 Only
.NET Framework 4 Required

Update: Added support for translations. Strings can be changed by opening up config.xml in your favorite text editor and modifying the values between <string> and </string>.

A simple application that lets you shutdown, restart, sleep, switch user, lock or log off right from a JumpList in your taskbar. Just pin it to your taskbar to use, and open the app to bring up the configuration window.

Comments and :+fav:s are appreciated!

Thanks for the great software! A new feature suggestion: I would like to see that when I single left-click on the icon on the taskbar that it execute a default action, like shutdown; if I single right-click it does just like it does now. Then in the options screen add a way to select what you would like the default left-click action to be. The way it is now I have to right-click, then click on shutdown. This is 2 clicks, and isn't any better than clicking Start -> Shut down.

I think this would greatly increase the value of this nice little tool.

Another great way to quickly access those commands is to press Alt+F4 on the Desktop, then choose the option with up/down arrows or the pull-down menus. :)

Just what I was looking for but it appears I can't select which items will be included in the menu because the program crashes on Windows 7 whenever I click the X to close. Otherwise it works great, as long as I just keep the default.

Just what I was looking for, however I do get an error on Windows 7 when I try and exit the options screen, the program crashes.

ps - "app. looks great - but, when i tried your app. - nothing happened - i downloaded - noticed it's a Portable app. - then, pinned to taskbar, mouse clicked for personal options - then, right-clicked mouse over task - then, nothing happened - pls advise, thx friend !!"

Nothing at all? That's strange, since Windows 7 will still show the default menu if a Jumplist isn't available.
Any chance you could show me a screenshot?

Hmm, you're right about the screenshot not showing much data so I won't worry about that. Do other Jumplists work?

ps - "yes, and i've had nps with other jumplists - between the interim of my first inquiry, your jl has only worked for me once - since thereafter, it's not worked again - i hardly ever have any prog. issues - so, this seems odd to me."

ps: "thank's for reply."

1. JumpControl instructions fail to mention that it is the right click Context Menu one uses to activate a choice.

2. The context menu, on my box anyway, failed to shorten when I unchecked choices. So I have a tall context menu with blank spots between the choices.

Sadly on my laptop, Sleep actually makes it go to Hibernate (so next time there is Resume Windows)
Could Sleep be just Sleep (as does Fn+F3)

I can't really do much about this since there's only one way to put the computer to sleep from a command that I know of (rundll32.exe powrprof.dll,SetSuspendState Sleep).
On the other hand, it *will* work when hibernation is disabled.

Not very healthy to disable hibernation on a laptop (it is used when battery goes below defined critical level)
True, that is the only command line option available, proper sleep would need to be done by relevant API calls - [link](v=VS.85).aspx

what about a programmed shutdown, restart ecc ecc...just with a countdown or with an alarm ?

I can't think of a good way to add on timed shutdown without sacrificing simplicity, so I might end up doing it as a separate app.

Just pin it to your Taskbar if you want it to stay there. (Right click on icon -> Pin to Taskbar).

I think the Sleep button will hibernate the PC if hibernation is switched on. If it doesn't just let me know and I'll see if I can add it to the list.

That's normal behavior, if you want to keep it there just pin it to your taskbar. That way the icon stays there and the JumpList still works.
