Emma’s Tech Tip – Quickly Launch Windows Apps


If you are running Windows XP and hate searching your Start menu for that elusive link that will open the application you are looking for, fear no more. Launchy is a sweet little app that will free you from ever having to search for a program link again. Once installed, this free application will index your Start menu and allow you to access your programs via a nice command line interface. Say, for example, you want to launch Microsoft Word, press the Launchy key sequence <ALT>-<SPACE> and then type “word”. Hit <ENTER> and you are off and running. It’s that simple.
