Some blog updates to my site to make the most of IE 9

Some blog updates to my site to make the most of IE 9

Some of you may have noticed that my blog now prompts if you want to pin it to your Task Bar and then it will also give you some Jump List items to go to the recent posts directly, or over to the Project Administration blog.  I hope you find this useful.  If you haven’t seen these features or the prompt then perhaps you are not running IE 9?  Or have IE 9 running in compatibility mode?  Now is the time to take a look!

You can either use the prompt in the floating bar or just drag the tab down to your task bar in Windows 7 (Server 2008 R2 with the Desktop Experience feature – as I am using in the first screen shot) and it will look something like this:

and if you ‘right-click’ then the jump list looks like this (this time from Windows 7)

JumpList

Let me know if you think there are other useful Tasks to add to the jump list.  If you want more details on IE 9 then the Beauty of the Web site is a good starting place – and if you want to do something similar then take a look at http://www.pinmywebsite.com/.  Thanks also to Stephanus Schulte who shared some of the details on doing this for our MSDN/TechNet blogs – as he has done at http://blogs.technet.com/b/sieben/ Enjoy!
