Launchy Quick Start

Are you tired of mousing through your Windows Start menu, looking for the right program to run, frustrated because there are so many folders and items appearing?

Then here’s something that may help you! Launchy is a nifty utility for Windows that lets you launch a program with just a few keystrokes, without having to use the Start menu. Just hit a special key (which you can define) and a small window appears where you type the program’s name. As you type, the program’s icon appears. If it’s correct, just hit Enter and Launchy will start the program.

Launchy even works by typing just a few letters of the name (eg ‘power’ for PowerPoint) so you can be up and running in no time! It even learns from your past requests, displaying your most frequent programs first.

Now that’s a time-saver!
