Launchy

Launchy

Launchy is a utility designed to help users forget about the application menu, the icons on the desktop, and even the file manager.

Launchy indexes and launches applications, documents, project files, folders, and bookmarks with just a few keystrokes.

Once Launchy has been started, it hides in the background. It is then brought forward by holding the alt key and tapping the space key. A user then type in a few keys of the program he or she is searching for and hits enter once it has been found. Launchy can be made to dissappear again by hitting escape or alt+space.
