It comes with the following supported OS session management tasks:

  • Shut Down
  • Restart
  • Sleep
  • Switch User
  • Lock
  • Log Off
  • Restart Explorer.exe


In order to install it, you only need to extract the app folder from the ZIP file JumpControl comes in, then put the folder wherever you want it the app to reside. In the case of this kind of app, the Programs Files folder or C: would be the best choices. But if you want to have it apart in a USB drive or SD card to carry it around, there is no problem with that. After you have decided that, just run it and it will instantly show the app configuration window. The only configuration to set is if you want to show all the OS session management tasks available in the app jumplist or only some of them at a time. Last step to finish setting it up, is to make the application JumpList appear and then click the “Pin this program to taskbar” option.

Done. Is that simple.

JumpControl is a great little portable app for those who like to customize their Windows 7 Taskbar.
