Wox for Windows



User rating8

Fully-featured Windows launcher

Windows Omni-eXecutor—or Wox for short—is a powerful Windows launcher that helps you access programs and web content quickly and more comfortably. There's also support for 100+ plugins that you can browse and install.

A straightforward program

This free launcher is a lightweight yet versatile bundle of tools. It features mechanisms to facilitate file and web searches and a long list of plugins at your disposal. It helps you use your Windows PC more quickly and efficiently, especially if your storage is overflowing with files.

Uncomplicated controls

Once you download and install Wox, it will stay in the background until you need it. To activate it, you can click on the icon or use the Alt + Space command, and a window will pop up featuring a search bar.


To find your desired application, type its name in the search box. The window will display all the items that match your query, and once you find what you're looking for, you can click on it. Your app will then launch directly from the program.

Well-organized user interface

Wox's UI is effortless and contains only the necessary tools and characteristics. The functions are highly intuitive, featuring no learning curve before you're making the most out of it.

If you don't like its original appearance, you can customize this utility using a variety of available themes. However, the layout won't change much. Unlike with Keypirinha, the customization options are scarce, changing merely the color scheme of the interface.

Plugin management

Apart from the basic search function, you get access to a plugin management component with Wox. Through this functionality, you can install plugins as you need them.

This software supports over 100 plugins written in various programming languages—including NodeJS, CSharp, Python, and Golang. You can also create plugins yourself.

Useful Windows tool

While it's not as robust as Alfred or Listary, its primary Windows alternative, Wox is still a super-handy program. Its powerful search tools dramatically facilitate finding items on your desktop, and its extra features across the straightforward UI further add to its practicality.
