Two little goodies which might be of interest:

1. MaxLauncher

This is the successor to MadAppLauncher, a similar program which ended dev in 2013. Both programs give users a grid of blocks, to which one can assign programs, files, folders, etc and launch them via clicking said block or a hotkey. One of the things specifically added to Max is a portable use option (zip file).

2. Quick Access Popup

The successor of Folders Popup; it is similar to FP, but with many improvements (such as reorganised menu items and the inclusion of a "Drives" submenu). The developer is actively taking suggestions/feedback. Together with FARR, this has to be one of the most useful programs on my ext hdd.

Side-note: why isn't FARR (Find and Run Robot) in the database yet??? It's easily the best keyboard-based launcher program available!

This program has already been mentioned. I'll go ahead and merge the threads. Edit: as this mentions two programs, I'll just leave a reference link:

Maxlauncher - program launcher

This question comes up quite a lot so we put together a FAQ item addressing it.
