Jump Lists are a feature found in Windows 7.
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.
The autodest files also contain a stream named "DestList" which acts as a most recently/frequently used (MRU/MFU) list. This stream consists of a 32-byte header, followed by the various structures that correspond to each of the individual numbered streams. Each of these structures is 114 bytes in size, followed by a variable length Unicode string. The first 114 bytes of the structure contains the following information at the corresponding offsets:
|0x48||16 bytes||NetBIOS name of the system; padded with zeros to 16 bytes|
|0x58||8 bytes||Stream number; corresponds to the numbered stream within the jump list|
|0x64||8 bytes||FILETIME object|
|0x70||2 bytes||Number of Unicode characters in the string that follows|
Custdest files reportedly follow a structure of sequential MS-SHLLINK binary format segments.
