Jump Lists

Jump Lists are a new Windows 7 Taskbar feature that gives the user quick access to recently accessed application files and actions. Jump Lists come in two flavors, automatic (autodest, or *.automaticDestinations-ms) and custom (custdest, or *.customDestinations-ms) files. Autodest files are created by the operating system

Jump Lists are located in the user profile path, in the C:\Users\user\Recent folder. Autodest Jump Lists are located in the automaticDestinations subdirectory, and custdest files are located in the customDestinations subdirectory.


Path: C:\Users\user\Recent\AutomaticDestinations Files: *.automaticDestinations

Structure - The autodest files follow the MS-CFB compound file binary format specification.


Path: C:\Users\user\Recent\CustomDestinations Files: *.customDestinations
