If you’re like me and can’t trust all those app-launching programs available from shareware sites, here’s something you might like, an app-launcher from Microsoft Office Labs. The basic idea is to let you launch your most frequently used applications with convenience and less-headache.
So, if you have a desktop like mine, cluttered with all kinda applications, IDEs, games, folders, temporary files etc, wait no more, you wont have to keep searching for your favorite app’s icon on desktop anymore, just drag that favorite program to “Speed Launch’s” Bull’s eye (which happens to right above your system tray). And thats almost all about it.
Speed Launch window can be launched by the Win+C key combination, and you can add as many applications as you want. Five of those applications will appear on the main window (as in the screenshot above), whereas you can use the textbox to type and launch any of the applications you’ve added to Speed Launch.
