ProgramLaunch v.3.33


nitially made as a tool to circumvent the annoying start menu, this third generation is completely redesigned from scratch to improve flexibility and performance and make everyday use of the launcher as comfortable as possible.Managing the launchpad is simple and intuitive. Programs are added either through a dialog or by dragging links from Windows onto the launchpad. Organizing the programs is also done easily by dragging the icons and groups around.ProgramLaunch can assign one or more shortcuts for each icon. These are used for launching a program by one simple keystroke. If a shortcut key combination is assigned to multiple icons, a list is shown for selecting the which program needs launching.Modules can display detailed information using popup hints by hovering the mouse cursor over the image. Hints will fade in and out and update the information realtime.The userinterface is constructed using a small skinning engine allowing a completely custom look. A few standard skins are bundled to start with. More skins may come later depending on the available developer resources.ProgramLaunch includes multilingual support, allowing it instantly to change all texts in the user interface to a different language. Only a few languages are available a the moment, additional languages can be added given some help for translating the texts.
