Jumplist Feature to Make Life Easier

I saw this over at Paul Thurrott’s site, Supersite for Windows, and thought I’d pass it along. You can access the Run as Administrator, Property sheet and more for a program on your Jumplist. It comes in extremely handy when you want to run it as Administrator in a hurry, without going through the Start menu.

When you right-click a shortcut in any modern Windows version and choose Properties, you’re presented with the Property sheet for that item, which provides a number of options that you can configure and use each time the underlying application (or document or folder location) is run. In the case of applications, there are some key options you can configure here on a shortcut-by-shortcut basis, including what kind of window is opened (maximized, normal) and even advanced properties like “Run as administrator.”
