Enable Power Options to Windows 8 Taskbar with JumpControl

As known by all, Windows 8 has no start button, start menu as well as direct option for shutting down the PC. Either you have to install third party tools or use keyboard shortcuts or navigate to inner sections of the PC to perform functions like shutdown, restart, sleep, switch user, etc. Here is a tool called JumpControl to bring these functions right to your Windows 8 taskbar.

JumpControl is a little, portable utility that can bring options like shutdown, restart, sleep, switch user, lock, logoff, etc. functions to Windows 8 taskbar. Originally designed for Windows 7, I think this utility is most useful in Windows 8.

JumpControl is very simple to use. Download and extract the file (download link below this post). Right click on JumpControl.exe and select “Pin to Taskbar” to pin it to taskbar. That’s it.

Now just right click on the pinned icon to get access all power options (see screenshot for details).

JumpControl can be downloaded from developer’s site here.
