Launchy is a free windows utility designed to help you forget about your start menu, the icons on your desktop, and even your file manager.
Launchy indexes the programs in your start menu and can launch your documents, project files, folders, and bookmarks with just a few keystrokes!
Once Launchy has been started, it hides in the background. You bring it forward by holding the ALT key and tapping the SPACE key. You then type in a few keys of the program you are searching for and hit ENTER once it has been found. You can also make Launchy dissappear again by hitting ESCAPE or ALT+SPACE. You can customize which key combination launches Launchy.
Launchy is developed to run on XP, however you can try downloading the gdiplus.dll and unzipping it into your Launchy directory to get it to run with Win2000.
You can extend and customize Launchy with many themes and plugins developed by its thriving user community.
We don't have any change log information yet for version 2.0 of Launchy. Sometimes publishers take a little while to make this information available, so please check back in a few days to see if it has been updated.
