I couldn't run this on win2k; it hides in the system tray without a way to display it. I even tried using Process Explorer's Properties.Image.Bring to Front resulting in the msgbox: No visible windows found for this process

Tim I know this is an old post but I hope by now you have upgraded from Win2K after all it is the twenty first century. For me this software works as advertised!

Why do the dependencies include the administrator rights?
SyMenu can work with normal rights too. It can even work from read only supports or network paths.

After Avast showed a virus I then checked with Virus Total which gave an 8 out of 54 report as Trojan,key logger etc.

The PortableApps Platform has been updated (a few times) since this was last updated.
I believe the current version is 11.2 (also there is a version 12 beta, I think its Beta 2)

Please update this listing!

Quick Cliq v2.1.0 New

joby_toss on 22 Feb 2017
  • 2MB (uncompressed)
  • Released on 14 Sep 2015
  • Suggested by I am Baas

Quick Cliq is a portable menu based application launcher and productivity tool that speeds up your daily computer activities by giving you links to folders, files, programs, links, and command line operations as well as window management, extreme clipboard manipulation, and “Memos” that hold frequently used bits of text, like e-mail signatures. All of this is provided in a compact menu that you can show anywhere and within any application or window without even taking your hand off the mouse. Because the menu is hidden when not in use it does not take up your valuable screen real estate, but stays on alert and shows quickly when it’s needed via a hot key or mouse gesture. The system requirements for Quick Cliq are extremely minimal and can operate well on even the oldest and slowest machines.
