A cool trick that Scott Cate
taught me about is the ability to activate Windows 7 jumplists from the
keyboard without having to use a mouse.
Simply press the Windows key + the Alt key + [task tray icon
index] and the jump list will appear. For example, above VS 2010 is the 4th
program icon from the left on my machine – so if I press the Windows Key + Alt
+ 4 at the same time then the VS jumplist will appear. You can then use
the up and down arrows on your keyboard to select the project you want to load
from the jumplist.
