How To Add Playlist To Windows Media Player Jump List?

One can customize Windows Media Player 12 Jump List in Windows 7 to include shortcuts of favourite songs or playlist, like the one shown in my screenshot.

Windows 7 tip: Customize Windows Media Player Jump List with playlist and songs.Whether you’re using touchscreen computer or a point-and-click mouse, it is easier to open and play songs or playlist in the Windows Media Player Jump List – just click and slide the Windows Media Player shortcut at Taskbar towards Windows Desktop, there you will get the Jump List :-)

Windows 7 tip: Customize Windows Media Player Jump List

By default, there is one Windows Media Player shortcut at the Taskbar. If this is not your case, then locate Windows Media Player 12 shortcut from the Start menu and right click on it to select “Pin to Taskbar” option.

To add favourite songs to Windows Media Player Jump List, right click to select the song, drag it to the WMP shortcut at Taskbar and release mouse click when the “Pin to Windows Media Player” message appears:

Pin Song or Playlist to Windows Media Player Jump List.

Too bad, however, that it is only possible to click-and-drag one song at a time to the Jump List (maybe possible in SP2?). To add more than one song to Jump List at one go, you can use Playlist:

1) Open Windows Explorer and click the Music Library. Alternatively, click Windows Start button to type shell:playlists and press ENTER key.

2) Select and drag the playlist, one at a time, to the Windows Media Player shortcut at Taskbar.
