Launchy - Applications launcher

#1 Post by blaumag » Tue Apr 25, 2006 3:11 pm

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!
It stores the configuration in the app menu.

Old topic update: the original Launchy (http://www.launchy.net/), a multi-platform program and document launcher, hasn't been updated since v2.5 released in 2010 (according to TPFC database: https://www.portablefreeware.com/?id=663).

Note: there is a later v2.6 Beta 2 release listed at the site, also launched back in 2010 -- see sourceforge.net/p/launchy/discussion/871718/thread/dc44f51f/ for changes.

FYI, there is now a Qt based fork in active development named LaunchyQt:


Changelog and downloads at https://github.com/samsonwang/LaunchyQt/releases; latest release is v3.0.7, dated 2019-03-26.

LaunchyQt has two modes: installed mode and portable mode. The difference between the two is mainly on the storage location of the program configuration. When LaunchyQt starts, it checks if there is a 'config/launchy.ini' file in the software directory. If this file exists, the software will run in portable mode, otherwise the software will run in installed mode.
