Launchy is a free windows utility designed to help you forget about your start menu, your desktop icons, and your file manager. Launchy indexes and launches your applications, documents, project files, folders, and bookmarks with just a few keystrokes!
What is Launchy?
Launchy is the most efficient way to open files and programs on your computer. Nobody likes to hunt through the start menu to find an application, just to find that the application is hidden under some obscure folder named after a company you have never heard of! Instead, Launchy is a smart search program which tries to guess which program or file you are looking for and will launch it when you hit the enter key. It is only visible when you hit the alt+space key combination; otherwise it hides in the background. Once you have used it for a few days, it becomes an indispensable utility for your computer. And it’s free!
This application is very much similar to the famous (or not so famous) AppRocket and is almost at par with it. Some of the draw backs of Launchy would be that it does not index everything and indexing is manual. Otherwise neat, skin able and fast this is one killer app in the making!
