Application: Launchy


After seeing someone using http://quicksilver.blacktree.com/ on a Mac, I knew I needed to do one of two things:

  • Buy a Mac
  • Get an alternative for Windows

I actually decided on the first – but the latter option will suffice for the time being.

How does it work? Press ALT-SPACE and type what you want to launch, press enter, done.

I’ve configured it by making an “applications” folder of my own which has shortcuts that I know I will use frequently: Command prompt, dreamweaver, firefox, etc. Next, I got launchy to index only that folder (not the start-menu or firefox bookmarks) – things become easier to find that way.
