Taskbar Jump list

Hi,

 

is there any way to interact with the taskbar jump list? I've already included MSTaskListWClass to the MSAA, but i have no idea how to access the jump list items and I need to check the properties of one of the items in the list.

Re: Taskbar Jump list

Have you tried recording over one to see what you get? Seems to work with no issue for me accessing the explorer shortcut and Desktop in the jumplist.

 

  let explorer = NameMapping.Sys.Process("explorer");
  explorer.Window("Shell_TrayWnd").Window("ReBarWindow32").Window("MSTaskSwWClass", "Running applications").Window("MSTaskListWClass", "Running applications").ClickR(0, 0);
  explorer.Window("DV2ControlHost", "Jump List").Window("DesktopDestinationList").Window("SysListView32").ClickItem("Desktop", 0);

Thanks,
Carson

I have, but it only records the right click on the application and nothing else.

Hi @DK12341 , were you able to solve the issue? If not, could you provide cunderw with the info on the desktop license and module he’s requiring? Thanks.

Re: Taskbar Jump list

Anyone ever get this to work in Windows 10?

 

Recordings as recommended doesn't work. Ther recording just gives coordinate on the jump list so you can't click on anything specific.

 

I worked on this a while ago and never found a real solution.  It does work better if you turn the Support for Windows Store app preference back on, but then you have to deal with all of the issues that come with having that preference enabled.  Seems like it should work without this preference on since jump lists have nothing to do with the store.
