How many of you are still working with Windows XP? I guess a lot …

Launchy is a keystroke launcher that gives you very fast access to your applications. Once the relevant folders (e.g. c:\program files) are indexed all you have to do is to press ALT+Space (can be configures), and a small dialog pops up.

That’s all you will ever see of this handy little application.

Now simply type in the first letters of the app you want to start, and Launchy will make good suggestions (if there is more than one possibility you can select the proper item from a drop-down).

Launchy is a real tme saver. Once you got used to this way to start apps you will never miss it. Especially those of you who prefer keeping their hands on the keyboard to pushing the mouse around.
