SlickRun is a floating keyword utility that allows you to create command aliases, or "MagicWords" that launch applications or URLs. For example, "browse" can be set to open Firefox, "note" to open Notepad, and more. You can type an application's path or location as well.

The program includes its own notepad program opened by typing "jot", but major applications such as MS Office and Online Shopping resources can be added using add-on packs available on the website.

SlickRun supports auto-completion, relative paths and drive letter macro for improved portability.

Runs on:WinXP / Vista / Win7 / Win8 / Win10
Writes settings to: Application folder
Stealth: ? No. It creates a lone working registry entry that does not impact portability of settings at all.
Unicode support: Yes. for Jot, history, autocomplete, $W$, etc.
Path portability: Requires manual entry of relative path (eg. ..\..\personal\work.doc)
License: Freeware
How to extract:
  1. Download the installer and extract sr.exe and DefaultMagic.qrs to a folder of your choice
  2. Create an empty text file in the folder and name it slickrun.local
  3. Launch sr.exe
