In this lab, you have experimented with Windows 7 Taskbar functionality from within a simple MFC application by using the new MFC support for the Windows 7 Taskbar. You have seen how easy it is to provide relevant progress and status information from the taskbar button using progress bars and overlay icons, how to quickly access common tasks and destinations using jump lists, and how to take advantage of MFC’s built-in support for thumbnail previews.

Integrating a production-quality application with the Windows 7 Taskbar might require slightly more work than you have done in this lab, but you are now sufficiently prepared to begin this quest on your own.
