Launchy…Letting You Launch Applications Faster Than Ever August 1, 2008

If you’re anything like me then you have way to many programs in your start menu. My beef with the start menu is how long it takes to find a program, having to click 3 or 4 times. Now with Launchy you wont have to click at all. If you want to learn more read on after the jump.

As long as you know any part of the name of the program you want to open then Launchy is perfect. By default its set so that when you press alt and the spacebar at the same time a little box pops up (shown in the picture above) You start typing the name of the program you want to open, and as soon as you see the icon for it hit enter. It doesn’t get much simpler than that. Thanks to Launchy I’ve almost completely stopped using the start menu. Launchy is for Windows and Linux only, if your a mac user look into Quicksilver, which is probably better than launchy.

Quicksilver does the same and even more on Macs.
