#1 Post by Replika » Sun Oct 29, 2006 9:28 am

Description:
This program is designed with ease of use and filesize in mind. It occupies

It has some features which are very useful for a mobile office on you USB stick.

Special features:
* Applications could be organized into groups.
* Separators for better overview

* Environment variables within paths, applications or options are automatically replaced, e.g. '%windir%' becomes 'C:\windows'.
* When exiting uStart, the started applications can be optionally closed.
* After Start you see only an additional trayicon, nothing else.
* Occupies only 75k (uncompressed) on your drive.
* Support for applications, folders and other files that are opened through their associated applications.

Though I personally couldn't stand the lack of a simple Drag 'n Drop interface, this app would probably be great for true minimalists. Adding it now.

[EDIT] Andrew, how do I add the "mu" symbol like you did with uTorrent? I know how to use the charmap to do it normally, but is it different on the web?

From http://www.utorrent.com/faq.php
How do you write µ?
If you're using English-International, or most other international IMEs, as your keyboard setting (but not EN-US), press AltGr M, or Ctrl Alt M. Alternatively, you can press Alt 0181 (on the numpad), which works on ALL IMEs and regions.
does it help?

I normally enter the HTML entity code directly eg. "µTorrent" becomes "& #181;Torrent". I use the excellent Unicode Characters to HTML Entities Converter to perform the conversion.
