Launchy

I just found this program and really like it so far.  Just wanted to spread the word:



http://www.launchy.net/



Now I don’t have to deal with the start menu ever again! :slight_smile:

Looks a lot like Google Desktop  :-o



http://desktop.google.com



http://desktop.google.com/features.html#quicksearch

cool! - looks a lot better than my own one :slight_smile: - will try it

i installed it and like it, but i'll have to report some bugs  :wink:

Yeah, it's still in early dev stages it looks like.  My personal favorite was when it crashed and said "TODO: Enter Description Here has crashed…" :slight_smile:

Squid, except to my knowledge Google Desktop doesn't offer quick launch/auto-completion for applications, it just searches your machine.

yeah, i use process explorer instead of the standard windows task manager and the process description is "TODO: <File description>" and company is "TODO:<Company name>"  XD

When Google Desktop is running, press Ctrl twice and start typing the name of the program you want to launch,  Then all you usually have to do is either press enter, as its most likely the first one on the list, or scroll down to pick the one you want.



Works for me anyway…  8)

Did you click the link he gave or what?

google desktop rules, used it for ages now…never ever search manually or wait for the dead slow windows search functions…not to mention all other nice googlicious search benefits
